    Reading that story of the "fat" 10 year old made me think to ask the question... What's the weight capacity for the Wii Fit scale? Does it read up to a certain weight or can anyone use it, no matter how fat you are? lol

    In Japan I believe it is 300 pounds. (Which is over 21 stone, by the way. Nobody who's that heavy would be able to play the games anyway...)

    Although the Japanese packaging states that it is designed to support people weighing up to 136 kg (300 pounds / 21 stone 6lb) and the "Western" Balance Board up to 150 kg (330 pounds / 23 stone 9lb), there is actually only one model Wii Balance Board and the packages differ due to differing laws in Japan and other nations.

    from wikipedia eh

    I laugh at the fact that the USA board can support more weight.

    Well.. if the Wii Fit scale can't support you.. you should talk to a medic, FAST!

    If it was from steroids, he wouldn't weigh that much ... I weigh 17.5st, have a 30/32in waist, and have only 10% body fat ... some of us are just built a certain way, and exercise ...
