We finally got a Wii

July 14th, 2007 · 5 Comments


After causally asking about them in multiple stores downtown over the past 8 months (once a month) only to be told they were completely sold out making it one of the hardest items to buy in Montreal, last night I was at futureshop researching a new camera and checking out the latest DS games and I once again asked the question: “Happen to have any Wii’s in stock ?” — “Yes – you would like 1 ?” … and it was done. Not cheap – 450$ with taxes, 1 extra controller and 1 extra game. We now own a Wii.

The fact that they just released Wii-fit (which I’m trying to convince Linda she’ll love) and that Super Mario World seems just around the corner — makes it all that much sweeter.

“Wii Fit is another innovative product from the product developers over at Nintendo. It’s a workout product that features a pressure sensitive balance board that will let it’s users practice and perform activities like aerobics, yoga, and traditional muscle training and muscle stretcing together with all kinds of games. This a brilliant move by Nintendo if you would ask me.” —

    One of the hardest items to buy in Montreal? What? Try to find a laptop with a canadian multilingual keyboard, intel video card and less than 1000$. That it’s hard to buy..

    I’m not getting Wii fit, Mii fit, or any fit for that matter. I fit nicely on the couch, where I’d like to stay thanks.
