People went crazy when the Wii was released. Stores could not keep them on the shelves. Nintendo was clearly in the lead since no other manufacturer up to that time had the ability to keep gamers entertained. The Nintendo was geared towards families and casual gamers. Nintendo scored a hit. They came back to the table with the Wii Fit, not only was Nintendo getting gamers off their backsides with a Wii classic motion controller but they introduced a Motion Plus controller which provided even more precise and complex movements. The Wii Fit changed everything, and Nintendo was clearly in the lead in introducing exercise and game play.

The Wii Fit has been nothing short of phenomenal. Suddenly people saw the potential of the accessory and the games. Not only could you entertain gamers, but you can now get them moving around so while they play, they also get exercise.

But there are also pundits that say that you should be outside getting the exercise you need, and while this is true there is also segments of the population where this accessory has helped adults gain mobility and helped to strengthen their bodies. Which segment? The elderly and those with existing mobility issues. Many nursing homes and rehab clinics are successfully using the device for physiotherapy rehabilitation. In fact many health clubs around the work have also taken to introducing the accessory to their patrons.

Another tid-bit of information that you may not know is that the Finnish Defence forces invested in 384 Wii consoles including Wii Sports and Wii Fit for their military bases around the world. This happened in 2009, and the feedback that they received from conscripts and officers has been mostly positive.
