Arcade game simulation for game consoles via Wii Fit

Remember Alpine Racer? If not it was a skiing game for arcades that used a unique control setup (movable skis) to simulate skiing. Now game consoles are catching up, with Nintendo’s Wii Fit board which features a skiing game that is reminiscent of Alpine Racer. I love how the mainstream game media keeps saying that arcades are behind but if that’s the case why are consoles trying to catch up with 10+ year old arcade titles?
