Do You Feel the Burn! Wii Fit’s & Wii Fit Plus’ Hours Played

January 7, 2011

Coffee Beans:
     Did you know between 40-45%(according to this source) of Americans make New Year’s resolutions each year?  I made one this year!
     Of the Americans that do make a New Year’s resolution 46% or 62%(according this source) make a resolution to either lose weight or exercise more, respectively.
    Considering that information, I thought it would be a good time to look at two Wii games that were designed to help get players more “fit” and even lose weight if that’s a goal:  Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus.

     Wii Fit was released on May 21, 2008 and was available for purchase only with Nintendo’s Wii Balance Board.  The game and Balance Board released with a MSRP of $89.99.
     Wii Fit received an “E” rating from the ESRB, with “Comic Mischief” being the only content listed for parents to be aware of.

     Wii Fit Plus was released on October 4, 2009, as a “sequel” of sorts to the original Wii Fit.  Wii Fit Plus was released as standalone software with a MSRP of $19.99, and Wii Fit Plus was bundled with the Balance Board with a MSRP of $99.99.
     Wii Fit Plus received an “E” rating from the ESRB, with “Mild Cartoon Violence” being the only content listed for parents to be aware of.

     How many hours have Wii owners reported “getting fit” with Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus since they released?  Let’s take a look!

Hours shown are for the United States of America, not world-wide.
Wii Fit has 958 days of game-play hours reported.
Wii Fit Plus has 457 days of game-play hours reported.

Approx. Number of Players Reporting Data:
     Wii Fit now has 1,198,546 Wii owners reporting their game-play hours through the Nintendo Channel.
     Wii Fit Plus now has 425,949 Wii owners reporting their play-time data through the Nintendo Channel.

Average & Total Game-Play Hours Reported:
     Wii Fit has 27,642,143 Total Hours of game-play reported, with an average play-time of 23 Hours 3 Minutes “Per person” reporting data.
     Wii Fit’s average reported play-time per session is just over 1 Hour 6 Minutes.

     Wii Fit Plus has 9,574,694 Total Hours of game-play reported, with an average play-time of 22 Hours 28 Minutes “Per person” reporting data.
     Wii Fit Plus’ average reported play-time per session is just over 1 Hour 13 Minutes.

Sale Rank & Advertised Price:
     Wii Fit’s Amazon.com sale rank is #886, and its advertised selling price is $113.47.

     Wii Fit Plus’ software only Amazon.com sale rank is #99, and its advertised selling price is $18.47.
     The Wii Fit Plus with Balance Board bundle’s Amazon.com sale rank is #3, and its advertised selling price is $79.96.

    Wii Fit is no longer being published by Nintendo, so it’s sale rank will naturally be lower than Wii Fit Plus’.
     Sale ranks and advertised prices recorded around 10:35PM on 1-7-11. 

Review Score Averages:
     Wii Fit’s review score average is 81.20%, based on 56 “professional” reviews on GameRankings.com.

     Wii Fit Plus’ review score average is 80.83%, based on 18 “professional” reviews on GameRankings.com.

     Wii Fit has a 4.5 out of 5 Stars rating on Amazon.com, based on 1,594 customer reviews.
     Wii Fit Plus has a 4.5 out of 5 Stars rating on Amazon.com, based on 1,086 customer reviews between both versions offered for the game.
     Take a look at the crazy number of customer reviews for both games in image below!

     Review scores recorded around 10:35PM on 1-7-11.

Filtered Thoughts:
     We own Wii Fit, but we haven’t played it in a long time.
     While we haven’t played ours in a while, I think it’s pretty impressive that the 1,624,495 Wii owners reporting data between both games, have a combined 37,216,837 “Total Hours” reported. 
     The combined reported game-play hours for Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus are equivalent to 4,245(rounded down) years spent getting fit!
     I would say the reported average hours “Per person” aren’t extremely high, but I think they are encouraging for fitness games.
Questions:
     Did any of you make a New Year’s resolution to exercise more, or lose weight, and plan to use a video game to help you do it?
     If any of you own Wii Fit or Wii Fit Plus, do you find yourself or other family members still playing it often?

If you are interested in Wii Fit Plus, I’m providing a link to Wii Fit Plus’ software and Balance Board on Amazon.com below.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Wii Fit Plus, & Wii Sports Resort: Data

July 2, 2010

Quick Brew Info:
It has been since May 17, since we looked at these three games together.  I may organize a few games differently going forward; but this week it’s time to see how busy the beach in Wii Sports Resort has been, along with how much the Wii Balance Board has been used, and how much Mario is being played in his 2D universe.
The data reported below is compared with the data that was captured/reported from May 17.  Read the May data HERE.

(Click image to enlarge)
Approx. Number of Players Reporting Data:
Wii Sports Resort now has 509,274 players reporting their play-time data on the Nintendo Channel.
Wii Fit Plus now has 261,135 players reporting play-time data.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii has 573,853 players reporting their play-time data.
Player Increase Over Last Report:
Wii Sports Resort had an increase of 75,536 more players reporting play-time data, since the May 17th data.
Wii Fit Plus had an increase of 42,048 more players reporting play-time data, since May 17.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii had an increase of 97,752 more players, since the last report on all three.

Game-Play Hours Increased Since May 17:
Wii Sports Resort has increased by 2,247,752 “Total” game-play hours.
Wii Fit Plus has increased by 1,058,016 “Total” game-play hours.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii has increased by 4,312,264 “Total” game-play hours.

Amazon.com Sale Rank & Advertised Price:
Wii Sports Resort’s Amazon.com sale rank is #31 and the current selling price is $46.99.
Wii Fit Plus’, the game only, Amazon.com sale rank is #66 and the current selling price is $14.28.
Wii Fit Plus w/ Balance Board’s Amazon.com sale rank is #20 and the current selling price is $99.99.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii’s Amazon.com sale rank is #7 and the current selling price is $35.54.

GameRankings.com Review Score Averages:
Just a quick note, if you check the last POST, and this post; you may notice that the number of Wii Fit Plus reviews actually decreased by one.  I know GameRankings.com can update which sites they use for the averages, so I guess they decided to make one review/site not be averaged into Wii Fit Plus’ score.

Thoughts:
New Super Mario Bros. Wii continues to perform extremely well in “Total” hours and hours averaged “Per person”.
The price on New Super Mario Bros. Wii has been discounted to around $35 for the last few weeks on Amazon.com, and Reggie Fils-Aime, the President and COO of Nintendo of America, confirmed at E3 that New Super Mario Bros. Wii has sold more than 14 million copies worldwide, since its release.

Questions:
Have you played Wii Sports Resort, Wii Fit Plus, and/or New Super Mario Bros. Wii since I last reported the data for all three games?
If you haven’t purchased New Super Mario Bros. Wii, is there a “magic” price that would get you closer to purchasing it?

Wii Fit Plus‘ review score average is 81.32%, based on 19 reviews.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii‘s review score average is 88.12%, based on 54 reviews.
Thoughts:
It has been 4 weeks since I showed the data for these three games.
On May 3, Nintendo announced they would be releasing a Black Wii Console in North America, on May 9; bundling it with the original Wii Sports, Wii Sports Resort, and a WM+ unit, all for $199.99.  They also have the White Wii in the same bundle now as well.
Also, Amazon.com currently has the Wii Fit Plus w/ Balance Board bundle in stock; so if you know anybody that has been looking for it, you may want to let them know.
I think it is interesting that New Super Mario Bros. Wii is on sale for $34.99 right now, perhaps it is because of Super Mario Galaxy 2’s release this coming Sunday?

Questions:
Have you played Wii Sports Resort, Wii Fit Plus, and/or New Super Mario Bros. Wii in the last 4 weeks?

Thoughts:
Well, Amazon.com is now out-of-stock again, of the Wii Fit Plus with Balance Board bundle.
The last time this happened, Amazon.com was out-of-stock for 12 weeks before getting the bundle back in stock, that was just last week.
I understand the Wii is popular, but I’m really confused how Amazon.com was out of stock for 12 weeks of Wii Fit Plus with Balance Board, they had it back in stock for about a week and a half, and now it is out again.
During the last week and a half, when Amazon.com had it in stock directly, Wii Fit Plus with Balance Board was ranked #1 on Amazon.com.  Today is the first day I’ve seen it out-of-stock, and the game has slipped to #2 now in the ranks.

Question:
I know some of you own Wii Fit Plus w/ Balance Board, is the game still being played regularly in your house?

Thoughts:
Well, Amazon.com has Wii Fit Plus w/ Balance Board back in stock!  Not only is Wii Fit Plus w/ Balance Board back in stock, but it’s also sitting at the #1 spot, making it currently the most sold video game on Amazon.com.
Amazon.com had gone 12-weeks without the bundle in stock, and just yesterday when I checked they had it in stock, and again tonight!
Question:
Do you know anybody that’s been looking for Wii Fit Plus w/ Balance Board, but hasn’t purchased it due to them not being able to find it?
Do you think Amazon.com will run out of stock again of Wii Fit Plus w/ Balance Board, or do you think people may have given up looking for it, and Amazon.com will now be able to meet demand?

I’ll be watching the status of it on Amazon.com, and I really wonder how long it will stay in stock, and I wonder if Nintendo lost a lot of customers since January, because they weren’t able to find the bundle.
