Nintendo Announces Wii Fit: Step Pad To Get Healthy

by Stuart Piazza


Nintendo has just announced a new Wii Peripheral. It is a step-pad type device which allows you to stand, sit, do push-ups, and other aerobic exercises such as jump-roping alongside a new title, Wii Fit. The game will monitor your health rating, and provide many mini games to get your fat butt in shape.


The device measures your balance, and even calculates your weight (body mass index.) It is wireless via bluetooth, and will ship later this year with the software title.

*UPDATE: According to Wii Fit, Reggie of Nintendo is too fat. If you would like to read the live transcripts of Nintendo and Sony’s conference, you can do so here.

Here is the video of the announcement:

    Man this looks hot. I can’t wait to work out my husband on it. If he doesn’t do at least two hours a day, he’s not getting ANY!! I will also have to train him as a matter of course. It took multiple tries for me to teach him how to hit the ball in Wii tennis. Either that or he just liked me behind him showing him the moves. Either way he’s HOPELESS at sports. Good thing he’s cute. We will both enjoy this. Maybe me more that him.
