How about neither or both?

A lot of gamers on this site will not like Wii Fit, and many out-of-shape individuals are out of shape because they aren't interested in getting fit.

On the other hand, there will inevitably have out-of-shape gamers who will see this as a way to finally start thinking seriously about getting in shape.

Wii Fit doesn't really appeal to me personally at the moment, but if it manages to help at least one individual improve his/her health (which is probable I think), then I will consider it a success.
