Wii Fit U, where fitness is fUn. No that's not their actual slogan, nor would it ever be a contestant for one, but from my own personal experience, Wii Fit has always been a fun and engaging experience. Where the series lacked in the past, challenge of keeping up your daily life with the game life, lack of variety over a long term, and ability to connect with friends,.... the new version for Wii U seems to be correcting all of this.

Fun Fact: There's three tiers to how you can purchase this game. You can either...
A.) Demo the game Nov. 1st and buy a Fit Meter to secure the game for free. The Fit Meter costs $20.
B.) You can buy a Fit Meter and a disc copy of the game for $50. I believe that's on December 13th.
C.) You can buy the disc game, Fit Meter, and the Balance Board for $90 dollars, also December 13th.

@PogueSquadronI heard something about Toy-R-Us have an in-store exclusive on them for the first month? although you can buy them online at many sites. I don't know if this was confirmed, or just a rumor, sorry.
I have called Toysrus, Gamestop, Best Buy, and Meijers. I have visited Target. Nobody has them. I keep hearing online for now and stores eventually. Then Gamestop offerred to do ship to store for free, but said there was little interest in them so the Gamestop stores decided not to stock them. It all seems fishy... Who is running this? The same guy getting the Affordable Care Act website working?
I guess I'll buy from Amazon when I get home. A shame I didn't just so this earlier so I could have had the item today. I guess on the bright side, its not essential to play the game, which I can still get for free right now.
Oh, I've got room then! When Reggie's part of the Nintendo Direct explained the possible use of an external HDD b/c of the game's size I was thinking it was going to be huge. Thanks! Downloading now...
I guess they warn people that if they use the trial version for a month and don't buy the meter to transform it into the full version, then they'll lose their progress in the trial version if they buy the downloadable or retail version down the road.
What I wonder, though, is: if I buy the meter, then will the demo version forever be labelled "demo version"? If Nintendo deletes the demo later and I deleted my demo-made-full-version on my system, will I be able to download it again?
I was worried about that too. I really hope they'd not be so stupid. Fan outcry could fix the "demo" moniker but the save file thing, they could be just silly enough to have manufactured that problem...if the Online Wii Saves situation was any indication.
