Nintendo has confirmed that they will begin selling their new home fitness game called ‘Wii Fit’ in Japan early this December with European distribution to follow in January.  Retailing for about $75, the game features a pressure-sensing mat called the ‘Wii Balance Board’ that can measure a players body mass index and their center of gravity – identifying when a person moves or leans and “enabling players to “head” virtual soccer balls and experience ski jumping on a TV screen.” Originally previewed as the Wii Health Pack, the game will incorporate Miis into the gameplay and come loaded with about 40 different activities to help make getting fit more fun.
