Don't think there is the facility to use more than one bb.

There are games that can be played multi - but I can't see how the yoga games can be more than one player at a time. May have a check next time I boot it up.

I presume the board just plugs into the wiimote like the nunchuk does?

It's wireless so syncs to the Wii directly. Which backs up my point about you not being able to use multiple BBs as you have to use some for the Wiimotes too.

It's wireless? Blimey. Definitely will be impressed if that £35 preorder comes off then ... it's got to cost more than that surely

So it must take batteries ... how long do they last ... does it eat batteries for breakfast?

i would've thought it be the same as using the wii mote, it doesnt need to send huge data across.

I find the remotes eat batteries pretty quickly. Especially if you have the nunchuck connected.

Really looking forward to Wii Fit. Does look like a good laugh and something different. I just wish Nintendo would announce the RRP soon!

That's as maybe but ... the fact that it's wireless doesn't mean you can't have more than 1 - otherwise you'd only be able to sync 1 Wiimote at a time.

I don't see any reason why you couldn't have a surfing game, say, which used just the board and have it being a 4 player (each with their own board) game.

Whoa £70 is a lot more than I expected. Given how the Wii is still selling out I doubt the price will go down any time soon.

Think i'm gonna leave it for now. Maybe i'll change my mind if the reviews etc are amazing.

I am leaving it also. The price is very ridiculous.
