The Wii Fit sold out completely in Japan in less than a week when they released it there.
This game/ exercise tool a little more expensive than most games. Standard new Wii games run about 5o bucks. The Wii Fit is $89.99.
The price makes sense considering the additional hardware, ie. the wireless board. And I'm sure Nintendo figures America will pay, especially since this product crosses 2 of our favorite things to spend money on, video games, and health and weight loss tools/ gimmicks.
And the Wii Fit sold out completely in Japan in less than a week when they released it there.
I think they are right though, when I checked the Game Stop website this morning it said they were already sold out. I am only counting on getting mine because I reserved it.
You can check it out more at the >>>Nintendo Wii Fit<<< site.
So the next thing I am excited about today: Odd Hours by Dean Koontz
This is the 4th book in the Odd Thomas series.
They are about a unique and interesting young man who can see the dead.
"The dead don't talk, I don't know why."
The first book, Odd Thomas is my favorite in the series, but I have enjoyed all of them immensely. I even suggested Odd Thomas for my book club and they loved it.
I will be downloading the audiobook today so Chris and I can listen to it on our ipods.
(We don't share books well and have had to buy 2 copies of every Harry Potter book. We have learned that audio books we can buy once, but both use at the same time.)
So maybe I can listen to Odd Hours while doing yoga or running on my Wii Fit.
