Feature: Where Is Your Wii Balance Board?
Posted by Damien McFerran
Time to dust off that slab of plastic in preparation for Wii Fit U
Wii Fit U's special trial deal begins this Friday, and will no doubt trigger a fitness frenzy amongst flabby Wii U owners all over the globe. However, a lot of time has elapsed between the incredible popularity of the Wii original and the launch of this new title, and like so many peripherals which have fallen out of favour and usage, there will no doubt be thousands — millions, even — of Balance Boards shoved in cupboards, used as doorstops or simply forgotten and neglected.
With that in mind, we've decided to ask the burning question to Nintendo fans everywhere: Where is YOUR Balance Board? Could you locate it in a fitness emergency? Is it easily reachable for the moment when Wii Fit U becomes available for download? Do you have sufficient stock of batteries in the house to power the board? These are serious — nay, vital — considerations for any prospective health freak.
So where's your board right now? Have you been keeping it in pristine condition, with fresh batteries ready for whatever fitness challenge may await? Perhaps you still use yours on a daily basis to ensure you're in tip-top order for the trials and tribulations the world throws your way? Or perhaps like us, you had to hunt through drawers, cupboards and down the back of the sofa to locate the device. Let us know by leaving a comment below, and feel free to embed photos below using the [img] tag — with your board in situ as it was discovered — so we can all have a good chuckle.
