Kotaku Originals: You Take That Back Brian CrecenteS

The boss-mans learned a important lesson about other people's feelings when he called Wii Fit a wee fad. Indignant Wii Fitters ultrabombed his inbox to say not everyone who "plays" it looks like this.

That's right, many of them were in much worse shape when they first stepped on the balance board. But now they're trimmer, slimmer and rockin' a hardcasual physique that, while it may not look like they hang with Johnny Klebitz, is propping up the industry, Atlas-style. Or so says Brian in his magnum opus of a mea culpa. Anyway, that and more from the week in Kotaku's original reporting:
