Your Shape for Wii drops to below $13 at Amazon
Last year, it was going to revolutionize Wii fitness with a camera and a “name” star; this year, it’s in the bargain bin. That’s show biz for you.
Your Shape with Jenny McCarthy, which retailed for $80 at first, is now being offered at Amazon for $12.59. That’s even lower than other games that fell flat, like Yoga, Daisy Fuentes Pilates or Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2009. On the other hand, some excellent games in the same under-$20 price segment include Wii Fit Plus, Gold’s Gym Cardio Workout, My Fitness Coach and EA Sports Active: More Workouts.
Reviews for Your Shape are all over the place, from raves to rants. I don’t have it – and don’t plan to get it, despite the price – but I suspect it has the same problem as the Eye Toy camera, in that it needs a ton of light and no background distractions (fan, pets, kids) to work well.
