    I second drangel_jam's question: what about the Ubisoft's Kinect title, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved? I've been shopping around and was down to Biggest Loser or YS:FE, so was disappointed that this video didn't mention the latter at all.

    Dance Central will give you a way better workout than any of these titles. None of them are loading you with weights so it's only about calories burned in a more cardiovascular standpoint. Anything done by Jillian Micheals will never be good.

    fun to watch and i hears some good things to. though i do think they should have use EA active 2 for the ps3 and not that washed up singers game. If you are going to show what every one of them can do then at least use software that actually shows it. Other then that it was fun.

    i do think it is funny that for the ps3 they picked such a worthless game but for the wii they picked EA active 2. Especially since that game is also on the ps3 and xbox360. if it was done fair i'd say use the EA game on the ps3 for the move review not a game from some washed up singer.

    ...later that day Sarah realized she's already hot and doesn't need a video game to work out. Trainers beg to give her free lessons. She smiled to herself and then kicked a hobo in the face.

    I wasn't expecting the Biggest Loser to best EA Sports Active. what about Ubi-Soft's fitness title?

    One word:

    Holo-deck.

    Well, there's no doubt that getting up and gaming is more physically intensive, than sitting down and moving your thumbs. Moving around does burn fat and if gamers put in hours into games like dance central as they do in say, Call of Duty or Halo we could be looking at a more "slimmer" gaming community.


    On a side note:
    I think it's a pretty neat direction where the industry is going. I think in the future will see how motion gaming and 3-D image processing will be put together to make a game more realistic. To me, these motion dancing and 3-D featured games, are just a stepping stone to a whole new integrated experience.
