I’ve been getting a lot of hits on my blog lately for my Wii Fit Tai Chi post. I regret to report I still haven’t found a Tai Chi program for Wii Fit. I wrote Nintendo and asked if there had any plans for a Tai Chi program. Their response was, “We don’t have any announcements about a Wii Fit Module.” When I asked what this means the response from Nintendo Customer Service was that they don’t know of any such programs being developed and wouldn’t be able to tell me until the product is actually ready for release. They also told me they don’t accept (and other game developers don’t accept) unsolicited ideas for their games.   But fret not, loyal readers, in this post I provide some other resources for Tai Chi (until Nintendo or EA or another gaming company produces a Wii Fit module for Tai Chi. Or a Tai Chi module for Wii Fit).
