The Power of Wii (2)

Read today over at MCV that Wii Fit has sold over one million copies over in Japan. Once again we're seeing the power of Nintendo at work.
The game, which features a ton of exercises you can do standing on a 'balance board' just goes to show that like Wii Sports, Wii Play and Brain Training on Nintendo DS the Big N are opening up gaming to a whole new audience. It also shows that gaming isn't necessarily all about sitting on your backside with a headset on. We can get fit people, if only we could find a Wii in the first place…
Elsewhere rumours are flying around that the Nintendo 64 classic GoldenEye 007 could be heading to Xbox Live sometime soon. The GameLife blog at Wired certainly hopes it's going to happen, and they have reason to suspect that other Rare classics like Banjo-Kazooie (once mentioned in the same breath as Super Mario 64) and Perfect Dark (once mentioned in the same breath as GoldenEye) could also be heading to Xbox. Mr Gates, you'll make my year if this happens.
