Besides playing sports games and navigating apps, there isn't much else to do with your Kinect. You're probably wondering, 'man why did I buy this peripheral? I need more choices, more innovation.' Well Harley Pasternak has introduced a great concept coming to Xbox 360's Kinect this fall: a fitness game! What a great idea! Why didn't anyone think of this before?
Joking aside, Pasternak, as you may or may not know, is Hollywood's go-to guy for many celebrities when they need physical training. The game, being developed by Heavy Iron Studios, is intended to give you the 25-minute per day, five day per week, customizable fitness program that the stars use. Pasternak even claims "[his] program worked for Lady Gaga, and it can work for you too.”
Hmm... I was previously unaware people wanted to be like Lady Gaga. Check out Pasternak's poker face in this first batch of screens.
As shown in the screens, the game will take place in a selection of trendy Hollywood-style environments like a L.A. loft, a beachfront condo, and -- I'm guessing here -- a Starbucks. Here's a few more features detailed by the publisher, Majesco.
Never miss a session and stay motivated by following your progress with the Fitness Tracker, a detailed calendar that tracks workouts, points earned per day, and time left in your program. You can even take before and after pictures to monitor your progress on Kinect for Xbox 360. Choose your goals, follow Harley’s advice and 5-Factor program and you too can achieve the Hollywood body you’ve always dreamed of!
Look for the title to release sometime this fall.
