Gaming the weight off with Wii Fit

Last year, Nintendo announced an add-on for the Wii called Wii Fit. It has already been released in Japan and is making its way over here in May.

However, that hasn't stopped a couple of people to document their experiences with the device. The most complete follows 4cr's Vinnk in something called The Great Experiment: Wii Fit. The next is Kotaku's Brian Ashcraft giving his opinion on the device.

It seems the most intriguing part of Wii Fit are the yoga exercises, because after all, it is essentially a balance board. While I don't see this as a sure fire way to lose weight, it is interesting to see exercise turned into a game of sorts. Perhaps this is a way to get kids excited about staying active. You know, in case the kid's treadmill doesn't work out.
