One million Wii Fit units have been sold in Japan in just over one month on the market. The surfboard-esque pad that interfaces with the Wii seems to have struck a chord with the culture in Japan. Apparently, they’re into cute, slow exercising where you never lift your feet or actually go anywhere.
Industry experts [G4’s TheFeed] are saying that the Fit will not do nearly as well in the US market where active gamers prefer to be more active and nonactive gamers prefer to sit and play. There’s always that contingent of geriatric Wiiers who may just see this as the perfect substitute for Seniorcize with Jane Troubador which went off the PBS airwaves last Fall.
