Wii Fit Plus Targets Target Parking Lots

Nintendo is rolling out the Wii Fit Plus Experience at select Target store parking lots in California, Georgia, and Texas over the next three weeks, with a $15 gift card for those willing to get their exercise on in public.


Nine Target stores across the three states will be hosting Wii Fit Plus demos in their parking lots starting this weekend, with eight kiosks giving shoppers a chance to try out the new mini-games in the updated version of Nintendo's balance board fitness app. While normally I'd steer clear of such public displays of my out-of-shapedness, a $15 gift card (while supplies last) is nothing to sneeze at. That's a lot of Choxie right there.

"If you're just embarking on your New Year's resolutions (or have already abandoned them), the Wii Fit Plus Experience at Target stores will show you how you can have fun and stay active," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "Wii Fit Plus has so many customizable options, it's easy to stay motivated and energized all year long."

Best of all, there's one right down the street from my apartment, which is the sort of convenience those of us in the Atlanta area generally miss out on. Go Georgia!

Nintendo has always been very good at public PR and this will not only ensure a large turnout, but likely trigger a spike of sales for the system, Plus and whatnot.

Publishers, take note. THIS is how you get the word out to causals. You can't use the old ways and then cry when your sales suck! I'm looking at -you-, EA, who I'm seeing no less then 50+ ads for SportsActive a week but never saw a single one for Dead Space-E
