Press Release Summary: The Nintendo Wii has been a hot and hard to find seller since
its release. This gaming system uses motion sensors, forcing users to move rather
than remain stationary on the couch. New studies suggest Wii as a good exercise and
weight loss tool, prompting to discount Wii's so they will be more
easily available to those seeking this form of recreational exercise.

Press Release Body: June 29, 2008-, a new site featuring 200,000+
items, has chosen to discount the Nintendo Wii in an effort to promote exercise and
weight loss. Over the last several holiday seasons, Wiis have been difficult to
find, and extremely costly. is hoping to reverse that trend and
make this form of recreational exercise more easily available.

The Nintendo Wii is available with a five-in-one sport game package, which includes
tennis, golf, baseball, bowling and boxing. Of these games, boxing was found to give
users the best workout, even topping out more traditional forms of exercising, such
as power walking.

Research suggests that with child obesity on the rise, and the emphasis on sports
and outdoor recreation declining among youth, Wii may be a vital tool in inspiring
children to exercise. After all, Wii is a video game, and video games are fun. New
research suggests that Wii may also encourage users to actively pursue the sports
they are virtually introduced to.
