Happy Wiikend everyone!! What are you playing this Wiikend? If you are planning on picking up a copy of Wii Fit this week, and you do not have a pre-order, Good Luck! We have all heard the reports about Wal-Mart.com pulling their Wii Fit pre-orders and reposting them, then pulling them again. Last night after seeing Narnia (if you are a fan of the series a must see) i went to a small town and visited their local GameStop and Wal-Mart, to see if I could pre-order Wii Fit for myself. Both came up negative. Why I did not pre-order it earlier, I do not know. All I know, come Wednesday, I am going to have a time searching one down.
This got me thinking last night. With such success, as the Wii is having, well we really see a new Nintendo system sooner than later, as many “experts” have suggested? Thanks to Wii Sports, the Wii has had a very strong Holiday showing the past two seasons. Can Wii Fit be the next big thing to carry the Wii to a 3rd straight holiday “ownership?” That would put the Wii at 2 years old and no sign of slowing down. Could this have an effect on Nintendo in decided when is the right time to bing out their new system? I really would like to know what you think.
Update: I just got back from Best Buy, more bad news. An employee at Best Buy, told me that they received an email asking them to stop handing out Wii Fit pre-orders, because they (assuming Nintendo) has not manufactured enough to even fill the pre-orders. Who knows how long it will be before I can get Fit with Wii Fit.
