America Buys Over 650,000 Wii Fits in First Day

America is certainly looking to get in shape. Wii Fit has reportedly sold over 650,000 units on the first day of it’s release in the Americas alone.  That equates to almost $60 million dollars (tax included) in one, single day.

Why is it selling so well is what I want to know. Personally, I’ve never seen a T.V. ad, so it either got hyped up on the Net or simply by word of mouth. Whatever way news of the add-on got around, it certainly struck a chord with Wii owners. This should certainly be getting gamers back off the couch and motivate them to be a healthier person all around.

In case you were wondering, here’s a list of games I know will be using the balance board in game:

  • Wii Fit
  • We Ski
  • Skate It
  • Rayman Raving Rabbids 3
  • Don King Presents: Prizefighter
  • (RUMOR) A Wario Ware Game
  • (RUMOR) A Kirby Game
