The Wii Fit parody video

Not everyone's a fan

Reducing security risks from open source software

Wii Fit may have already sold over 1m copies in Japan, but it seems not everyone's looking forward to standing on that little white board when the game finally gets released over here.

The Balance Board, which is the central peripheral to Wii Fit, is given a sarcastic analysis in this video, which describes the bathroom scale-esque device as “a little white thing you stand on”.

Although Nintendo states that the game guides users through over 40 different muscle, yoga, aerobic and balance exercises, the video’s commentator describes how the game actually allows users to “explore exciting new exercises, like leaning side-to-side” and sticking out your leg.

Earlier this week Nintendo announced that Wii Fit will be available in the UK on 25 April and in the US this May.
