    This was posted before, but not in an article...I'll wait until Nintendo announces a date before I get excited!

    Please don't use sterotypes. Obesity may be growing in America, but there are tons of Americans that are average weight. Unless you are American, which I don't know, then shut up about it.

    I mean it in a nice way....

    I saw the 1up release date but refused to believe it. I need an exercise machine for the winter not summer!

    thats true however if they brought both versions to america it would be insulting on a personal level if you were buying the "fat" version. however if the create a "fat" version and send it here it will be insulting but not on a personal level, so no one person could get mad at them. that's my thought about it.
    Same goes for cars actually, i used to work at a performance shop, imported a set of stock Subaru STi seats for a car, they were noticably narrower than the American version, nothing else was different about them actually, the looked the same, got installed the same, but the american ones were wider than the japanese set. kind of funny actually, at least to me, and i'm not a skinny guy.

    I saw a video of someone on youtube who imported a wii fit game and board. it said the board can be used by people 299 lbs. or lower. I think that would be fine with anyone who is actually going to want to play a fitness game.

    i'm not close to that weight but maybe a heavier duty one will be nice anyway if they use it for more games that stress the board more(think like a snowboarding game or tony hawk or something) then even if you only weigh 200 lbs, you may end up putting over 300 lbs of pressure on the board.
    that is of course if they utilize the board for future games like that though.

    You know, if we are going to stereo type, healthy fit Americans are on average taller than healthy fit Asians. Larger bone structure requires larger seats, cars, etc...

    Have you ever seen an American politician in Asia? They usually stand a half a foot taller than all the Asians. But, then Japan has Sumo wrestlers and no one would call them tiny, petite, or in shape.

    I'd like to see a gamer go up to a NFL football player and tell him he was fat.

    Your not from manchester or England so don't you dare comment on The Devils?

    He can say what he wants if it's inside the rules and if necessary he could easily back up his statement with facts.

    I won't be buying WiiFit since it looks like it will have the same replay value as WiiPlay (play it for a couple months, then it gathers dust). I'm telling you, the novelty of the WiiFit Board will wear off eventually.

    Well, Britain is third most obese country in the world (after U.S.A. and Mexico). But really, sending the stronger balance board is just a way of expanding that idea of 'everyone'. 60% of Americans are at least over weight and Nintendo have simply decided to modify the board so that it can be used by all. But I do hope they don't ship the normal board and the 'fat' board. It'll be just like 'super-size me' all over again.

    I think I can be a fan if I watch it every week. It's my heritage, English and Irish.

    Anyway, don't you think it's a compliment for your league if I choose to watch that instead of the MLS?? What else am I supposed to watch if I want quality soccer? The MLS sucks.

    I think I have a right to comment on it if I actually know what's going on. I'm not protective of any league here, simply because sports are enjoyable for the whole world to watch.

    This has gone way off topic, I just hate sterotypes, and it makes me really mad when people use them. The world needs to understand that we don't live at drive throughs. I actually hate fast food. I guess it's no big deal, it is a fact that America is more obease than other countries, but not everyone is like that.

    That isn't the point, what I said was an example. Just because this guy posted something you don't like doesn't mean he can't say it, it's a well known statement and is right.

    I know I admitted it was a fact. Whatever...I hate these kind of arguements especially if the guy who posted isn't even involved lol.

    On topic from here.
