perhaps because this is US only?

They decided against it I guess. They probably figured it's best to just let Wii Fit outsell it for the rest of it's life.



Another thing i want to point out is those days of 360 out selling the ps3 are looooooooong gone. yea you might see 360 ahead by a few thousand in SOME months, but its NEVER going to be like what it was like lasts year. the ps3 will only continue to out sell 360.yea again same with ps3 they might be ahead in some months by only a few thousand,but doubt MS wants that image where it cant out sell the ps3 by alot anymore.
