the fat Antony needs to get fit, presenting Wii and Wii Fit
From the picture on the right, it is without a doubt that I am fat (and black). (The photo was taken last month in Melbourne.) Because of the overweight, I decided to get myself a birthday present in advance, a body exercise equipment - Wii Fit (and Wii) - last week.
As usual, more photos follow...
Before I continue, Wii is pronounced as English word “we”. And we all know that the word “Wii” has a very strong connotation to the word “wee”, that's besides the point of this entry.
Do I really need a Wii? Well, after Laurent and I getting a Sony Bravia LCD TV, I got a Sony PlayStation 3 for Blu-ray and DVD playback. We have some PS3 games, but somehow I found that PS3 game title is still quite small. After some thought, I need a gaming machine that suits both Laurent and I, as well as a motive on getting fit. The solution: a Wii and the popular Wii Fit.
There are the photos:
It comes with one set of Wii Remote, Nunchuk, one sensor bar and Wii Sports (game). Two Alkaline AA batteries are included for Wii Remote. According to Wikipedia, the Wii Remote itself is bluetooth based (like the PlayStation 3 Controllers), but it read the signal from Sensor Bar that determines the location of Wii, then transfers back to Wii.
Besides the body fitting part, Laurent and I found that we are more interested in gaming titles offered in Wii, more family friendly ones. (Gaming titles in Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 are mainly focused on shooting/fighting or racing.) The graphic part is certainly nowhere as good as PlayStation 3 games (either on 1080p or 720p). However, do I really need the best quality in picture? (To Don: I am not an open-source extremist who demands everything the latest and the best.)
Getting a Wii is not that easy, as most shops are out of stock. It is a very popular machine. Lucky that I got one with discount from Myer.
I know I don't really need an excuse to buy anything, but it sounds better if I have an excuse.
(To Don: Antony is poor.)
