My pre-order says $90, but my delivery estimate is between now and May 23, so I'm hoping it comes.

I wasn't going to get it but I read another blog where a guy posted before and after pictures after 7 weeks of using it for 30-60 minutes a night and damn if he didn't look better. It wasn't a huge improvement, but it was enough of an inspiration for me to give it a try. Maybe I'll do the same here.

Nintendo knows how popular this devise is gonna be. I'm gonna guess that they've learned their lesson of supply and demand and will have plenty available

I just realized the wii fit is gonna be released the same time I visit my sister at the base. Tax free wii fit for me

You guys should do a DVD Talk's Wii Fit Biggest Loser challenge. Because I'm betting no one sticks to this enough to lose significant weight loss.

It's certainly a lot of money, but I'm definitely getting this one. I like the Wii Series games so far; not hard, but fun to just play with some friends. This peripheral looks great though. I think it'll be a nice and fun way for those of us who would like to stay in relative shape without the hassle of going to the gym. Not to mention it'll be nice to have this for the inevitable snowboard games that will be coming out.

I'll take you up on that. This thing is cheaper and more convenient for me than pretty much any other exercise option.

I'm being realistic and not expecting miracles. But I am completely willing to try.

That is awesome. I have 5 on preorder with Gamestop. The guy asked me if I was a physical therapist, but no, I'm just a mercenary ebayer with a strong respect for the Rules of Acquisition.

Picked up the rechargeable battery pack and the silicone skin as well. The skiing game looks fun too but I'll wait until closer to release date to pick it up.

I preordered from Amazon, but may try to pick one up on release day and cancel my order.

I think you'll be surprised. It's going to be all over the media (we are doing something on it for the daytime talk show I work on).

I predict it will be tough to find without looking.

I do want to pre-order one just to avoid the possibility of SOLD OUT, but i can't apply the $20 off coupon for pre-orders on buy.com

Daytime talk show eh? I don't think people will be watching that (lol, j/k).

Seriously, with the weight limit, i think that cut out a lot of people... Even if they want one, they can't have it (unlike the Wii, you can still play it if you weight over 250 pounds).

Remember when some said the same thing when the Wii launched?

The Japanese version supports like 200 pounds or something (way less than the US). I would say 250 is a fairly good guess (i read it from CAG, but that could be "educated" guess as well), considering it's a plastic board and all. I doubt it's "good" over 300 pounds,that's a lot of pressure for a tiny little board (i could be wrong of course).
