    £25 cheaper than ours, then? Gah.

    Still, it’s great. Well worth the investment, IMO. And it works.

    Depends on two things:

    1. Whether you want to get fitter
    2. How many Wii games you buy

    If the answer to 1 is ‘yes’ and 2 is ‘a fair few’ then it’s worth it. The balance board will be used as an optional control method for plenty of other games, some of which I’m convinced will be ace. The ski jump and snowboarding minigames in Wii Fit prove how amazing a Wii version of 1080 would be, and I bet Nintendo make a Wario Ware that uses the balance board, too.

    Easy for me to say, I guess. I spent £40 on the Japanese one, but I’ve got more than my money’s worth out of it.

    Nice.

    Still reckon I’ll just go for a run, though.

    Wii 1080 would be fucking brilliant.

    Aren’t you too busy writing the news to go running? This way, you can jog with the remote in your pocket in the comfort of your lounge while dictating your posts to some lackey or other.
