Wii fit hard to get in Vienna, Austria

Written by Fuad Abazovic

At €90 retail price


Nintendo Wii Fit, including Wii Balance Board, is listed on Austrian e-tail for €75, but it is usually not available at that price. This overpriced game with surf board that tells you how should you stand actually retails in Saturn and Media markt or Cosmos electronic stores for €90.


Game publishers are pushing the prices, as they were related to Jensen from Nvidia and apparently they want to see how long can they go.

You cannot play Wii Fit without the Balance Board, and this concept was already used for Guitar Hero where you have to buy a plastic guitar to play the game.

Miraculously, Wii Balance board can tell you how to do Push ups or how can you stand while the plastic guitar will just make you think you know how to play. We just wonder what is next, Wii swimming pool or, even better, Wii Snooker?
