Wii Fit: 2007 was a banner year for Nintendo as the Wii became a gaming phenomenon. Wii Fit, which the company demonstrated in September, could extend its run in 2008. The fitness game allows users to stand on a special accessory called the Wii Balance Board and see their movements on the board reflected in the game.
"Nintendo does some very creative stuff that's a complete hit or miss," says Divnich. "The Wii Fit is being targeted towards the whole family so it will be interesting to see how the U.S. market takes to it."
While Nintendo's Wii may be a huge success, independent publishers have yet to see strong sales for their Wii games. Wii Fit's success could show that all Wii gamers are looking for are titles that are interactive, fun and easy to play.
