CheapyD unboxes WiiFit. Paid about $70 for a scale with some motion sensors


3:24 AM on 12.03.2007



WiiFit came out in Japan over the weekend and was easily another big seller for Nintendo. CheapyD got his hands on the bundle and filmed the unboxing for all of the Internets to see. Cheapy will have some feet-on (HAHA! GET IT?!) report on what he thinks of WiiFit on his CAGcast this Wednesday.

I have mixed feelings about WiiFit. It seems pretty stupid but I can't past judgment until I get my feet on this. I'm really interested in seeing how Nintendo keeps this alive and not let it die out or go to waste like the Virtual Boy, Super GameBoy, eReader, etc. I can see this being really good for say a boxing game. Maybe even a ... kayaking game. There's plenty of sports application for this actually but I'm curious if maybe an FPS game could be built around this. Any of you have a good idea for a game that could utilize both the Wiimote and the WiiFit board?

[Via wardrox's C-Blog that I almost completely forgot about until I just saw Kotaku's post about it. Damn day job. Also, Call of Duty 4 for the Xbox 360 is on sale for $39.99 this week. Thanks CheapyD. Your head is so shiny and smooth!]

Sold: Sony's PSP title, Patapon, to retail for $19.99

Some would say that I like a good deal. Others might say that I'm a cheap (or broke) bastard. But when it comes to great videogames, I'm willing to drop a few bones to satiate my cravings. But when I don't have to, I get pret...more
