'Wii Fit' Makers Apologize For Game That Called a Girl Fat

I would have demanded an apology sooner if I had known Nintendo would be so compliant.  Long before Wii Fit, I swear that Mario and Luigi have been gratuitously stage-whispering that I am "morbidly obese" for years. Maybe I should quit getting my parenting and validation from a video game maker.  Or have BMI measured by a doctor instead of a nunchuck controller.  Nah.  [Alan Childress]

Why does the Wii Fit only cater to the people that are under the 300 lbs. That to me is Discrimination towradrs people that are Fat. I am 6'1" and 315 to 325 lbs and I can not play. Is it to hard to make it way upto 450 lbs. I guss me and 90% of my friends are just to FAT.

Isn't it better to be called fat by a video game instead of being called fat by her peers? I still love the Wii Fit!
