Wii Fit to Cost $89.99, Requires $10 Deposit at Gamestop.

23 03 2008

The price of fitness will not come cheap on Wii, at Gamestop, it seems. Gamestop is listing Wii Fit at $89.99 with a minimum preorder deposit of $10. Previously the games had been listed at various retailers for $69.99. The Gamestop price seems a bit steep for the casual market they’re trying to tap. What do you think? Will you shell out almost a hundred bucks for Wii Fit?

I don’t think i would get even if it cost 40$.

Bullshit. You got no right to complain. It’s going to cost ¬£69.99 over here in the UK, and, for those who can’t count or change monetary values…that’s well over $130US equivalent.

First we’re fucked with a brawl release date, and then we’re fucked with the wii fit.

It’s sickening.

But yeh, you guys ain’t got no damn reason to complain, and you know it.

Like dwaggie said, you got no right at all to complain. I don’t know what it’s going to cost here in Sweden, but here we have to pay like 600SEK (and that is almost $100US) for a game like Super Mario Galaxy!

I’ll pay at $50 – $60 but not $90. No way. That’s past the point at which I’ll buy it. I’ll wait until it goes down in price until I get it. I was looking forward to it, but that seems to be a little too much.

“The Gamestop price seems a bit steep for the casual market they’re trying to tap. “

Not really. Rock Band, Guitar Hero, DDR, and all those other types of games appeal heavily to the casual market, and they all use relatively expensive controllers.

People are willing to pay more for hardware.

So we can only complain if stuff costs as much as it does in the UK and Sweden?
I’ll try to remember that, but I’m pretty sure I won’t give a shit.

Dwaggie On and others who are jealous they get ripped in their home nations:

Move. Do not tell others they should have it as bad as you. You can fix your own stupid problems, move, or just be happy others get good deals.

Bitching that your nation sucks so other should shut up is something I only expect pre-teens and people still living with their mommies to do…

^I don’t think they’re complaining about their countries sucking. Actually, I’m pretty sure they’re just angry that they get ripped off. Cheaper video games has to be the worst reason to pick up and move to another country ever.

Anyways, I’m not really interested in wii fit, but $90 seems reasonable considering guitar hero and the rest of that crap.

If you want it and are willing to pay for it (whatever the price may be), buy it. If not, don’t. Stop bashing each other because of market differences. It makes no sense.

I’m pretty sure if you’re on this blog, you are either a preteen or still living with your mommy. sorry.

Why is this such big news? I preordered the game last month and paid the full $90 then. This isnt really news at all.

You guys are kidding me, now I understand that some people are on a budget, but I really think a lot of people don’t understand the magnitude of the balance board and how gaming has now gone a huge step further to full emersion, thanks once again to Nintendo.

You bet your sweet bottom that I’d even pay $200 for this thing.

Hell yes I am going to buy it… I am even more mad that its not out already.
