Hi - just starting looking into this Wii Fit thing - if I wanted to buy it do I need to buy a Wii Console or does the Wii Fit and Board work without this? Sorry if this is totally dumb but I'm totally not into gaming. Thanks!
If you haven't bought it already. There are a few places that are selling the console and Wii Fit for about £170, which is very good value, considering that the console on its own can still cost over £150.....
Amazon themselves are not selling it for £135- it is the market place sellers- other company's or individuals trying to make extra money.
When in stock it sold for RRP £69.99 or less by Amazon
It is still IN stock on Amazon.fr for 88 odd euros (approx £69) +p&P (about 6 euros. There is another section on here about buying from .fr or .de giving details about not using 1-click(your default address wont have UK in French etc) .
Check the other topics out . The wii fit has 5 languages inc English, so will play on Wii console in English, game booklet will be in French but you can download that from Nintendo USA site in English, and board itself uses/ comes with 4 AA batteries.
Hope his helps ;0}
P.S look at other topics most people have got theirs in less than 5 working days from .fr & paid RRP.
Update- ,Fr Have just sold out...but German Amazon.de is still in stock similar price 88 odd euros.. Check both site regularly and you may be luckily.
Amazon.de even have a section in English to help when ordering: http://www.amazon.de/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=505538
Hi Browneyes,I saw your reply and it answers my question perfect, where can i find the complete package of the wii console with the wii fit for the price you say?, thankyou so much for taking the time to offer advice .I am really new to this lark and feel it will be the first thing ever to make me exercise. many thanks Mafanwy
Yes it does need batteries. you can use 4 re-chargeable AA batteries to help save money, or you can buy a special rechageable battery pack for the wii fit on Amazon. I have just had a look, it is called (Intec Wii Fit balance board rechargeable battery) and is is being sold new for £4.84. If the battery pack runs out, you connect it to your usb on you pc and it will charge it back up. I have one myself and it is very handy. The Wii fit itself will alert you when the batteries are getting low.
The weight limit is actually 23st 8lb, (150kg) it says on the back of the wii board. So i suggest that you try yourself to get down to 23st, or just over and give it a go. It will really help to get you motivated. You will not notice that your exersising because you will be having fun while doing the games. You can have fun doing step, hoola hooping and a little light jogging as well as balance games and because they are all low impact and easy to do, you will feel much better within a couple of weeks. I would also suggest looking at my training coach, you don't need a wii fit for this and it is like having a personal trainer at home. It will tailor a workout around you and could help you to lose them few pounds to get the wii fit. Good luck.
