Take that MK Red....LOL... He hates Wii Fit for sum reason...lol

I don't like the Wii Fit either with good reason. It seems like nothing more than an excuse to stay indoors. I'm not going to say going to the gym is better alternative since most people who say that don't really go to the gym. But what ever happened to jogging in the neighborhood or local park for half an hour?

People are buying this either for themselves or their kids thinking that "fun + exercise = more exercise". But in reality it is not much more different than buying that hi tech treadmill for yourself, adding on some mp3 player, and then adding on a cable tv. If these people didn't have the motivation to have some real exercise in the first place, neither will this gadget.

lonestarmt6068d ago

its silly, you can do almost all of that with a simple step table. Wii fit will just about has much work for you as eye toy kinetic.

MK_Red6068d ago

I take it ;)
But really, the reason I hate Wii Fit is because it's a scale, masqurading as a game.

Lost Oddesey still selling well...

"While Mistwalker's latest latest RPG didn't have a first week showing on par with Blue Dragon, it did pretty well."

Sorry it isn't still doing well. This is the same report as before. This is what it sold the first week, read the quote above. Sadly LO won't be tearing up the rpg world.

PS360WII6068d ago

no not tearing up but still having a presence ^^

ruibing6068d ago

See what gets to me more than the fact that MS is basically hogging a JRPG studio to itself is how 360 owners don't appreciate them. For them to buy more of Blue Dragon than Lost Odyssey boggles the mind.

I tried Blue Dragon on my friend's 360 for a few hours, it was one of those generic RPGs made catered for the masses. It's like watching a generic anime for children that was horribly dubbed. I really think Lost Odyssey has the studio finally establishing its roots, yet 360 owners would still rather play Halo 3 (not including Mass Effect since I'm a Bioware fan).

lilwingman6068d ago

Still? This is the first week of its release... it should be selling reasonably during its first week.

lonestarmt6068d ago (Edited 6068d ago )

yup not a good sign for LO. Its its first week which in japan normally means really high game sales, since they ten to decrease rapidily and it did worse than blue dragon its first week. Not a good sign. Poor mistwalker
