Can you fit the Wii Fit?

The 300-pound limit isn't good news for the gravitationally challenged.

There may yet be a day when the ubiquitous treadmill is replaced by the Wii at the gym, and the first step could very well be on the Wii Fit. The machine, as you'll recall, senses the movement of your entire body using a device that resembles a scale. And, like a scale, it can insult you by breaking if you weigh too much.

There's just one problem: The weight limit is 300 pounds. That may be fine for the petite Japanese , but it had better be able to handle more weight if it wants to succeed in other countries--particularly the United States--without a class-action suit. There's no firm news if the Wii Fit outside of Japan has been given extra protection against the gravitationally challenged, but it's something to look out for.
