Wii Fit tells 10yr old girl she's fat

Post by Col.Kell » Wed Mar 25, 2009 10:46 am

The media in UK aparently had a field day with this. Nintendo has beared the wraith of the tabloid because Wii Fit told a 10-year-old girl she was fat.

I never will understand the big deal about all of this...

And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

people are too self conscious
people need to accept people for who they are, and for who others are.

media likes to blow things out of proportion

I find it amusing that Nintendo's attempt to get people to play their game more by telling them their fat and need to lose more weight, backfired.
This blunder kinda reminds me of the infamous "hold-your-wee-for-a-Wii" contest that killed that one woman...

ah yes, i remember that contest

so looks like death count for consoles:

Xbox360: 0
PS3: 0
Wii: 1


Conclusion:

Consoles are bad :lol: :lol: :lol:
