Are you getting sick and tired of sitting in front of the computer playing video games? If so, perhaps the Nintendo Wii offers a great alternative. When you play games on the computer, you sit in front of the system for hours, using your fingers to type or click. In the long run, this may pose serious health hazards for you. Stiff or incorrect posture can cause injuries to your neck, shoulder, as well as spinal area. Your wrists may also get injured as well if you are not careful.
Nintendo Wii games work very differently from traditional computer games. The system works with sensors, and controllers are sensor based. That means there are no wires connecting the controllers to the system. And that allows greater freedom of movement. You can play all kinds of fun and exciting games on the Nintendo Wii. Popular games include bowling, tennis, cooking, and racing.
The gaming concept is simple – allow players to respond to signals in the game using the controllers. With a greater degree of movement, fans find that they get a great work out while playing Wii games. It’s only a matter time that Nintendo starts releasing fitness related games. True enough, we now have the Wii balance board.
With the release of the balance board, fans can now enjoy a whole range of different games. When the balance board was first released, you have to buy it together with a game called Wii Fit. Fans are thrilled by the balance board, but they also want to find out if the balance board is available for sale without the purchase of Wii Fit. After all, there are other games that they can play using the balance board. Unfortunately, the answer to that question is a disappointing “no”. You cannot buy the balance board without the Wii Fit.
Realizing that there is a gap in the market, manufacturers started to release copycat balance boards. These are boards that work in the same way as the original balance board, but you don’t have to buy it together with Wii Fit. As far as fans are concerned, they don’t really care. As long as the balance board works, they are happy.
The list of Will balance board games include All Star Cheer Squad,
Babysitting Party, Don King Presents: Prizefighter, EA Sports Active, Equilibrio, and more.
The balance board is far from being a contender as a serious fitness board. It does, however, provides lots of fun for family and friends. Be careful with the movements though. You may end up hitting somebody in the face. This happens when you get too carried away while playing the games. You may also find yourself getting addicted to the games and playing too many hours. This may cause bodily injuries to various parts of your body such as your wrist or knee.
So play with moderation and enjoy your Nintendo Wii balance board.
