We Get Kinect-ed!

Another bonus? Photos of yourself are snapped while playing!

Over Thanksgiving, my hubby somehow conned his mother into giving him an early Christmas present. He reeeaaally wanted a Kinect for our Xbox 360. At the time, I didn’t even know what a Kinect was. I think I had seen a commercial for it, maybe. But I chalked it up to yet another technology purchase that didn’t really involve me.

Then, we set it up, got playing, and I realized the magic of the Kinect. And the magic fitnesspotential of the Kinect.

We already had a Nintendo Wii (I told you, yet another technology purchase…), which was revolutionary in that you could control the game by actually moving the controller. The Kinect? It’s even more fantastically revolutionary-er.

    You should try the biggest loser for kinect, I think it’s the best fitness game for kinect. You should also try dance central if you like to dance, it isn’t quite a fitness game, but it can count calories. You might get disapointed with zumba, I think it’s much like a regular fitness dvd, which isn’t quite the point with kinect.

    I am LOVING our Kinect. It’s everything I was hoping the Wii would be. My kids and I are having the most fun with Adventures. All that jumping gets us SWEATY. I haven’t tried any of the ‘fitness’ games yet and look forward to reading your reviews. Would love to see what you think about EA Active for Kinect. I’m so tempted to get it.
