no comment

The Xbox 360 is the number one selling video game system for 2010, and is looking forward to maintaining their powerful presence in 2011.  What took us a little bit by surprise was how the Xbox 360Fitness Kinect Games were dominating the best seller’s list for Xbox 360.  Three of the top four spots in the Amazon Xbox 360 Video Game Store included Xbox 360 Kinect Games: Your Shape Fitness Evolved, Dance Central, and EA Sports Active 2, all Kinect games, and all fitness themed.  The fact that the top three video game sellers for the Xbox 360 are Kinect games says something about that savvy new add on to the gaming system, clearly indicating its popularity among the video gaming community.

I myself purchased an Xbox 360 Kinect for my daughter for Christmas, and we are in love with it.  Not only is the controller free motion gaming a remarkably phenomenal experience, but I’ve even lost some of my ‘holiday weight gain’ from playing it.  Its a great way to spend some quality time with my daughter while getting us both up and moving.  It seems that I’m not the only one interested in integrating some exercise into our play time based on the fact that fitness themed Kinect games are selling like hot cakes.  It is, of course, that time of year when fitness and weight loss are on our minds as we make New Year’s Resolutions and set new goals for our selves.

We’ve owned a Nintendo Wii for years, and while we do adore our Wii, I’m definitely falling harder for the Xbox 360 Kinect experience as it takes interactive motion gaming to new levels.  It really is great not having to worry about using a controller as we play.  We’re not going to ditch our Wii by any means, but our Xbox 360 Kinect has definitely found the number one gaming spot in our household.  The Kinect comes with the Kinect Adventures game which is fantastic.  We have played it for hours at a time, and the game definitely provides a good workout for those of us who sit at a desk all day for work.   Buy Now at Amazon for $149.99
