I'm looking for just the bundle for the Fit alone, not the console as well.

Thanks guys! ...keep 'em coming.

If you want to pay retail, your best bet is to stop by the targets, walmarts, gamestops, toysrus, best buys and etc...if you do not mind paying a few dollars more, craigslist and ebay has a ton of them. The prices are not that bad as the wii fit with tax is $99 and people are selling them on craigslist for about $120.

Good luck, over the weekend I stopped by a ton of stores and noone had them, then on Monday I was driving buy and stopped in the best buy just on a whim and they had many.

Noted...that's kind of what I feared. Are the prices likely to sky rocket as we approach xmas on Craigslist? Should I look for a week and pull the trigger at the $120 if I find nothing for retail?

Thoughts?

Its hard to say...I spoke with a manager of a toysrus and he said that the supply will be low for the rest of the year and then two days later I run into a half pallet of the stuff at best buy.

Stores like BBY and Target get their Wii/Fit shipments on Sundays. Be there early and you will find one.

I called around local best buy stores and asked when their shipments came in. I've lucked out this way before, it's how I got our Wii last year and the Wii Fit this year although my daughter thinks it's my nephew's xmas present.

just FYI for anyone else looking at this...
the Target on Elston gets Wii Fits in on Sunday mornings. I picked up one during the summer as I just happened to be there at 9 am on a Sunday morning. They had three when I dropped by the video game section. Bought it then went over a few isles to get dish soap and as I walked by again they were all gone.

Good to know. Thanks. Now I'm just wondering if I need more big plastic crap around my home. I still don't know what to do with my force wheel.

Blah, Blah, Blah

We tried it out for the first time last night. Don't expect it to be much of a workout. The balance stuff is challenging, but if you're already a fit person, don't expect to break a sweat or anything. Hopefully they come up with more games for it. For feeling like you're working out, stick with boxing. The most exhausting thing so far has been the intermediate hoola hooping.

I think it's pretty cool, more entertaining than my xbox IMO.

I'm actually thinking about trading the 360 and my games in to get a wii and the board, and get the snowboarding game.
