It's right in the instruction book that comes in the box. Wii remote in one hand, beer in the other.

I probably should not announce this, but that is what I did to mine. It is great to be able to play the old classic games.

I have seen Wii fit advertise a lot lately. I am tempted to get it. Is it really worth it?

I got the fit plus and so far I'd have to say yes...but reading some posts here makes me believe there are others just as worthy of mention...read back for a bit of 'insider' info from those in the know....other Wii junkies.

My son and his wife live in the cold north country and they have the WII fit,it is great for them since going outside for walks and stuff isn't always convenient.My daughter in law has them on a healthy diet and they each work with the WII fit a minimum of 1/2 hr per day and that includes their 4 yr old and 10 yr old.It is a great way to get their excercise and spend quality family time together!!!!!

I can say for certain EA Sports Active is a much better workout than the Wii Fit. I have both, and while the Fit was a good starting point, it gets tired after a while. Sports Active is more like a designed workout program with varying intensity levels that keep you going for a long time.

great input...I have the Wii fit+ ...but can see it will be 'outgrown' in time...will be good to have the input of others when I go to 'step up'.

Well, I can confirm that it is fun and that you can get a good workout! I have never done wii fit so I can't compare though. I am awfully glad we started on the easier setting though . . .

Sounds like a job offer.

Nah. I'm too cheap to hire somebody for something like video games even if it was just $20.
