Wii Fit to Launch at $89.99

Nintendo filled in the last bit of information for the Wii Fit game on Tuesday, announcing that when it launches in the U.S. on May 19th it will cost $89.99 (MSRP). $90 for a game? Well, it's more than a game; it includes the new Wii Balance Board controller, and anyway, let's not forget that Guitar Hero III for the Wii is the same price.

When Wii Fit hits stores on May 19, expect to see an unsurprising $90 price tag slapped on the front of the box.

The aforementioned box, which includes both the Wii Fit software and the newest must-have accessory from Nintendo, the Wii Balance Board, has already sold "more than 1.4 million units" since its Dec. 1st launch in Japan.


Our question has always been, was the delay between December and the U.S. launch exacerbated by the rather more rotund nature of Americans?  Or not.

Although I don't own a Wii, if I did I don't think I'd get this.  I haven't seen anything since E3, and it seems kinda fun but not worth that much cash.  Though one of my friends with a Wii is excited and will get it, so I'll give it a try shortly after it comes out.

Now, if we can figure out how to get McDonalds to include them in their Happy Meals, we just might be able to do something about America's child obesity epidemic.

Or we could just kick the kids out of the house for 2 hours a day.  Kinda like a mexican siesta, but backwards.  At 4pm every day, all kids must be outside doing something active.
