From Amazon:

We do our best to accurately estimate when items will be dispatched from our fulfilment centres and from other sellers on Amazon.co.uk. Estimated dispatch dates are based on several factors, including your destination address, how quickly we can obtain and assemble items for dispatch and whether you have requested that we group your items into as few deliveries as possible.

Our estimated dispatch dates are generally a range of dates. It is entirely possible for an item that has not been dispatched by the beginning of the date range to still arrive within our delivery estimate.

We calculate delivery estimates by taking our estimated dispatch dates and adding the time it takes a package to travel from our fulfilment centre to your destination address.

Sometimes we'll update our delivery estimates based on the most recent information we have, so please remember to check your estimated delivery date in Your Account.

Note: the total delivery time (from when you place your order to when it arrives) for UK Super Saver Delivery is 2-3 days longer than for First Class delivery. Super Saver Delivery orders can take longer to leave our fulfillment centre.

i hope they do a new board, i broke mine (too many pies)

Thats arrival date not dispatch date. You chose free shipping which takes a few more days than first class. Choose first class and it will be closer to the dispatch date.

Dispatch estimate: 30 Oct 2009
Delivery estimate: 4 Nov 2009 - 6 Nov 2009

does this include the "vitality sensor" which is a ground breaking device

No, it doesn't.

I can't find the link but I remember reading that the vitality sensor will be released next year with its own software and mentioned something about measuring your relaxment levels.

The big talk on the internet forums is that it could be used for lie detector testing, how useful!

This is just the game on its own, no balance board.

Hydromancer;5461802

What does it do other than measure your pulse?

As much as I love Nintendo, Wii Fit Plus seems like a cheap cash-in. It's got all the same workouts that the original game had, but just includes about 15 new mini-games.

Im looking at Krjgreen picture it wonderfulll !!! :-)

Have to pretty much agree, the games look mildly fun for about 5 minutes but that'd be about it for most people.

If they put some of this stuff into real games and made it multiplayer then it would be good.

Wii Fit was a overhyped piece of software for achieving fitness, I am not falling for a sequel. EA Sports Active is far superior.

Most definitely agree - EA Sports Active is fab, I won't be going for this either

Yes, after trying out EA Active for last few days I must agree with comments above that it certainly seems to be a far superior workout to any I did on WiiFit and judging by that preview video that's not going to change either.

Never did I finish on the WiiFit and have a full sweat on or feel the aching in my arms and legs the following day like I do with EA Active. Just my opinion

What you have said is so true, but in some sort of defence of Wii Fit, it was never marketed as a cardio workout that EA Active was, and is useful in posture control and balance unlike anything else.

To be honest though, I am starting to get tired of all the peripheral add ons for the Wii.

Doesn't seem to supply the board. Looks like you're paying a lot of money for some piece of over-hyped software.

It is called Wii Fit, not Wii Better Balance.

Not me, my Grand Slam Tennis with Motion Plus has arrived at my house and I am itching fow work to end so I can play it!

Good price and i did pre order.
However it is available at shopto.net for £29.85.
This includes guaranteed delivery by the release date.
Free delivery. All you pay is £29.85
They ship 2 days before the release date to ensure you receive it.
So still a hot deal, but there is an alternative for those who just can't wait for super saver delivery.

I wouldn't buy this for the proper exercise stuff....but i'll get it for the balance board games.

It may be more expensive than other mini-game collections (although I highly doubt it has an rrp of £49.95 like Amazon are saying)..but Nintendo's minigames actually tend to be good.:-D

...besides which, one of the mini games is pretty much a homage to Pilotwings..so I can't resist that.

I am aware of the title being Wii Fit, however Nintendo never MARKETED it as a cardio workout(unlike EA Active which has been), more a gentle fitness and awareness of health, and as a result with the BALANCE board it works better with the exercises within focussing on posture and balance as there is a heavy reliance on the balance games and yoga. If you still fail to see that then straight from the horses mouth Miyamoto :

its just a lamp

It seems like a lot of money for all it is, a set of mini games. Now that I have EA Sports active I can't see myself being tempted for this for fitness, although the mini games look like fun!

is the EA Active game any good

bit of a waste of money... it has a few new workouts added on and a few new games... the only good thing about it is not having to stop after every workout to choose a new one... you can do yoga or muscle workouts for 30 mins continuous say... the only thing i use wii fit for!

I love the fact your dog can join into!

How he holds the controller's a bit of a mystery to me though??

That is the board he is talking about, not the software.
There is an element of fitness involved and you can work up a sweat going through the various exercises. Anything that raises the heart rate and makes you sweat is exercise, exercise makes you fit.

Which takes me back to my first answer in response to the the user who stated EA Active gives a better workout than Wii fit :roll:

Wii Fit was never designed to be a full cardiovascular workout as opposed to EA Active ...and if you actually read the article Miyamoto IS talking about the Wii Fit software.

Mild casual exercise does not make you fit, scientifically proven, prolonged resistance on muscles increases heart rate which makes your heart stronger and in turn yourself fitter.

Wii Fit is a mild exercise program and awareness as Miyamoto says "I don't think Wii Fit's purpose is to make you fit; what it's actually aiming to do is make you aware of your body" and certainly any reviews I have seen for it market it more as an addition to gym work etc rather than an exercise program which EA Active actually is.

Which leads me back to the first reply, the two elements of software in fairness should not be compared, as Wii Fit is designed as a fitness awareness program as well as posture and balance awareness, whereas EA Active is purposely designed as a cardiovascular trainer workout program. If anything the two programs should compliment each other well rather than being compared.

There's going to be 2 options, software only or Wii Fit+ and board. They won't be selling the old Wii Fit software after the new version comes out, all Wii boards will be supplied with the new version.

Seems a bit expensive just for a game (of this type that is) ... if it were with a board then this would be hot ... not for me so no vote.

Agree with that also. Wii Fit is great for exercise newcomers who just want to burn a few calories while having some fun -- but for more experienced/fit people it's all but useless.

I have just got EA Sports Active but not had the chance to try it out yet, can't wait now
