Default Fit lass is branded a fatty by Wii Fit

Quote:
A HEALTHY girl of 11 decided she needed to go on a diet – after Wii Fit labelled her OBESE.

Tabea Scott-King, who is 6st 13lb and 5ft, told her mum she had to lose 4lb after playing the game at a pal’s house.

Guess she better off to the gym than use Wii Fit that can mess up your body shape and weight.

lol. In the UK we measure weight in stones and pounds rather than just pounds like you do in the States.

14 pounds (lb) = 1 stone (st)

and she's 5 feet tall.

You UK idiots need to get with the program and use straight up pounds... I hate watching a UFC that is in the UK and they say somebody weighs 12 stone or something.... freaking super annoying.

The game is probably configured to AZN standards.

AMERCANIZED!!!1

On a serious note, the BMI thing is really inaccurate (and pretty ****). It makes so many people feel bad about them selves. It's classed my brother as obese, but he's just well built (muscle being heavier than fat). Also his girlfriend, in which isn't fat at all, so I dunno what was going on there.

I think 12% is normal, if not a little low. AFAIK up to 20% is best.

If Nintendo wants to roll with the casuals, they're going to have to deal with casual gamer's nonsense. Those Japanese better learn some political correctness - Western style. No more manjis in children's games.
