Wii Fit Calls People Fat

I know this news has been all over the web recently, but the Wii Fit calls a lot of gamers fat. Isn't that why they're playing the Wii Fit to begin with?

A friend of mine got the Wii Fit. He is one of those crazy people who actually go to the gym and work out on a regular basis. He is not fat, but Wii Fit ranked him at the fattest possible on their scale. This is because his BMI is more than the "healthy" average should be. Muscle weighs more than fat so if you just looked at his weight, height and age on a chart, it would indicate that he is a big tubbo.

That's all it is, people. A chart. Your BMI is at one spot, the game will tell you you're healthy. Another spot and you're fat. So what? It's just a tool to try and help keep you a little more fit. You want to really be fit? Be crazy and go to the gym and eat healthy.

I've also seen stories about gamers who bought the Wii Fit but are too heavy to play it. It says right on it that the maximum weight is 330 lbs! If you weigh more, the Wii Fit is not for you!
