E3 2010: Kinect Workout Game
A demonstration of Ubisoft's Your Shape: Fitness Evolved for the Xbox 360's Kinect. This was probably the best demonstration for Kinect out of the whole conference. The game will come out around the same time of the launch of Kinect in November.
Here is a blurb from Everybodyplays (The pictures above are also from the same article):
Your Shape: Fitness Evolved first scans your body, so it can accurately put you into the game. From there you can tailor workouts to suit your personal goals - be it to lose a few pounds from your stomach, tone up or just relax. You can also take 'classes' in Yoga, Tai Chi or Martial Arts, or get the rest of the family moving with the mini-games.
The game gives you plenty of precise feedback on how you're doing, in the form of adding extra on-screen prompts to help you correct your posture. The game also keeps track of your score, and the all-important number of calories you burn, whilst rewarding you with "interactive effects such as paint, water, light, fire, confetti and more", based on how well you perform the exercises. That'll be sure to keep us going in our battle against the bulge (!)
Your Shape: Fitness evolved features workouts designed by professional fitness experts, such as Michael George (who trains with Reese Witherspoon and P. Diddy/Puff Daddy/whatever he's decided to call himself this week), and Michelle Bridges (the trainer from Australia's 'The Biggest Loser' TV show) No, we've never heard of them either.
On top of that, Ubisoft will be giving you a reason to keep coming back, with new downloadable workout routines being made available on a regular basis, to make sure you don't run out of things to do.
