Wii Fit takes top spot on Amazon.com, I still haven’t opened mine

I wouldn’t say I’m necessarily “out of shape” as much as I’m not “in shape.” There was a time when I’d hit the gym, lifting things up and putting them back down in an effort to make myself look as much like my Smackdown vs. Raw created wrestler as possible.

Now married with a family and a full-time videogame writer, I’ve since (mostly) given up that dream. But I did buy Wii Fit, and from what I understand, it’s going to tell me whether or not I’m fat (note: I’m totally not). The problem is, I’ve had it for three weeks and haven’t opened mine yet. Now, I’m no expert, but I don’t think I will be able to shed any weight, or get any health benefits, by leaving it on my shelf. 

I’m certainly not the only one who’s purchased Wii Fit — it seems it’s still hot, topping Amazon.com’s charts, beating out pre-orders for Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, Fable 2, and Gears of War 2. Oh, it’s also selling better than Madden NFL 09. Seems people would rather shake their asses for a cause rather than sitting on their behinds watching other people sweat. 

The break down for sales on each platform can be found after the jump.
