Wittgenstein's argument is that language is a game with judges determining ones language competence. That's impossible with a private language because it does away with the notion of the judges. An other way of looking at it is that language is about communication which, by necessity means someone else must understand what one says.

Of course given the controversy people do read it in subtly different ways.
