A new promotional image for the Wii balance board as utilized in Wii Fit shows that the accessory has a weight limit of 300lbs (136KG) slapped on it, however this is for the Japanese version and perhaps there will be adjustments for other regions.
The Americans will have the option to super size their board!
I guess Gabe Newell won't be able to play! OH SNAP!!!
well, that cuts out half the people who have potential to buy it..
obviously there not aiming at americans with this :p
But you just eliminated 60% of the Wii owners out there. omg let me stop now. it's only 30%
Have you seen the fat loads that play PS3/360?
We should organize some kind of BMI survey...
(I smell a BMI-related Everybody Votes question!)
At least your ignorance is not the normal "Wii is for children."
In fact, you admit the vast majority of Wii owners are adults.
Well...not that bad.
It's just that I help out an organization called CHOICES (www.choicesforkids.org) and i devised their "gamersise" program (no it's not called that..it's just one of those buzzwords people use). DDR and Wii Sports has made our program sucessful. Our program is starved for more wii titles and wiifit was the next logical choice.
Not anymore! While the majority of our passerbys probably wont top out over 300. Some will, and to turn them away is not acceptable therefore we cannot adopt the wii fit into our program.
Damn shame too, we were probably apart of the few examples to validate the wii's calorie burning power (what little it has at least....moar games!)
Well that's about 5% of the U.S. population who can't play.
I suppose Nintendo really doesn't care about hardcore gamers.
..or overweight people, how racist.
Wow, Didn't see the *Insert Fat American blast here* jokes coming. Very low brow. I would never stoop to that level of insults on another country....
...But at least our skinny women have good teeth, instead of buttered up chiclets. =P
I am American and I definately enjoy making fun of fat people. Its a great way to pass time. Here are some of mine:
Yo momma's so fat, she smells like bacon at 90 degrees
Yo momma's so fat, the horse on her Polo shirt is real
Yo momma's so fat, she puts mayonnaise on aspirin
You wont fit on it...Maybe if you spent less time bashing PS3 and more time on the treadmill, then maybe, just maybe, in a few years you'll be able to fit on it. Don't worry, because by then the 4th gen xbox will be out.
Was some epic failure at comedy right there. Suicide is your only option now.
