The reviews are unchanged from last week. I really wonder if Wii Fit Plus may get a few reviews now that it's the new year. Maybe a few reviewers made a weight loss resolution, and they'll try losing it with Wii Fit Plus?
New Super Mario Bros. Wii's review score average is 88.50%, based on 51 reviews.
Wii Sports Resort's score is 82.78%, based on 49 reviews.
Wii Fit Plus' average score is 81.32%, based just only on 19 reviews.
I'm still really surprised that Wii Fit Plus is sold out on Amazon.com. I know Amazon.com is a huge internet shopping site(the largest I believe), maybe that's the reason I've seen so many Wii games out of stock over the holidays and into the new year?
If you missed my post earlier today, my wife and I did beat the main campaign of New Super Mario Bros. Wii. We are now going back collecting the star coins to unlock the other levels.
Questions:Why do you think Amazon.com is sold-out of Wii Fit Plus? Do you think Americans may be buying it after the new year, perhaps as part of a resolution to lose weight?
