Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter has explained that Wii Fit can’t be bought for love nor money in the US for two reasons: the weak dollar, and the fact Americans aren’t getting any thinner.
“The shortage demonstrates one consequence of the weak dollar,” the analyst told the LA Times. “We’re seeing companies ignore their largest market simply because they can make a greater profit elsewhere.”
“They know that Americans will be just as fat a few months from now” when Nintendo will have more units available, he added.
Don’t ever mince those words, Michael. The world would be far more boring if you did.
