Lose Weight With Wii Fit Plus: Launching Oct. 4

The original Wii Fit release was a runaway (but probably calculated) hit with the mass market, giving Wii owners a way to feel as if they were getting 'fit' while in front of the TV with a Nintendo machine.

Just in time for the holiday buying (and eating season) will be Wii Fit Plus, which is an enhanced version of the original Wii Fit but a range of new features, such as new exercises, yoga activities and balance games. Users will also be able to customize their workouts to target specific areas of their bodies or to fill specific intervals of time.

Wii Fit Plus will replace the current Wii Fit configuration at retail starting October 4, and will be bundled with the Wii Balance Board accessory at a suggested retail price of $99.99 – so if you haven't picked up Wii Fit yet but are planning on it, just hold off for another month.

For people who currently own Wii Fit and want to get all the new features of the new version can purchase the Wii Fit Plus disc separately for $19.99.
