'Wii Fit' for Mom's Day? Wal-Mart thinks so

MSNBC - May 2, 2008


Submitted by apujanata (29) at 6:50PM PST on May 3, 2008


Walmart.com pushing exercising program ahead of May 19 launch... This weekend, the Walmart.com homepage will be dominated by the Wii Fit — a physical exercise program that uses a pressure-sensing board as a controller — including a link to order the product now, ahead of its May 19 U.S. launch. Through May 11, shoppers who "pre-order" the $89.74 game, or pay in advance to guarantee delivery when the game launches, will also get a $10 online gift card to use for a future order at Walmart.com.

N. Planning 'Biggest Ever' Marketing for Wii Fit

GameDaily - March 20, 2008


Submitted by Just_Ben (7) at 8:53AM PST on March 21, 2008


Michael Pachter reveals that he's "learned that Nintendo of America intends to support the Wii Fit launch with the biggest marketing campaign in its history." It suggests to me that the marketing will be broad-based and mainstream, meaning beyond the normal online and game magazine ads. My guess is we will see advertising on TV during American Idol, Oprah, etc. as opposed to ads on MTV during Punk'd.

Submitted by deftangel (43) at 2:53AM PST on April 16, 2008


Five of the top UK retailers have halted further pre-orders for Wii Fit. Play.com, Amazon, Game, Shopto and Zavvi are all displaying messages on their websites informing users of the situation. Stock supply for Wii Fit looks unlikely to be able to meet demand if online pre-order pages are anything to go by

Wii Fit sells out at Play.com within a day

gamesindustry - April 7, 2008


Submitted by Mushashi (26) at 2:45AM PST on April 7, 2008


Play.com has sold out of its entire allocation of Wii Fit in just one day, ahead of the games official release on April 25 in the UK. Pre-order demand has "overwhelmed" the online retailer, following success in Japan that saw the game sell one million copies in just over a month on sale. "Wii Fit is going to be huge – let’s hope that we can keep up with demand. We are expecting more stock before launch," he added.

NYPOST - March 31, 2008


Submitted by PyrosMagus (1039) at 2:53PM PST on April 1, 2008


Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter is predicting the game - more of a virtual personal trainer than a traditional shoot 'em up or sports fantasy - could be one of the industry's biggest blockbusters of 2008.
