R.T.F.A.* Thursday: What Happened When 'Wii Fit' Arrived

wiifit1.jpgPeople went crazy. I'm not kidding. Walking around the MTV.com floor with Tracey's copy of "Wii Fit" caused a commotion like I've never seen before for a video game. The thing is, this wasn't your normal advance-copy-of-a-game-insanity from the gamers on the floor. No. This ruckus came from the people who I thought could care less about games. They came running out of the woodwork, asking if they could see it, try it, and even borrow it. The answers were yes, maybe, and no respectively. [Tracey's note: Definitely "no" to the last one.]

If there were any doubts about how big this game is going to be all you would have needed to do was see the audience I attracted just to calibrate the board. "Wii Fit" is going to be huge.
