    So made a sound investment in one if these this week. Usually I roll my eyes when the xbox gets turned in cuz it means an hour of watching my boyfriend faffing on FIFA, but not anymore! :)
    Spent about two hours last night playing table tennis, volleyball, hurdles and loads if other cool games in kinect sports,

    By the end I had to have a cool shower, we were both sweatin buckets!
    Not to mention, my rubs aching from laughing.

    It's a great way to get some fun exercise, especially if you don't like venturing to gyms or just running on a treadmill.

    I'm buying dance central for it today in a hope to Become bootilucious lol

    I highly recommend it, the technology is amazing :)

    Kinect is amazing for the xbox. I've got dance central, it's a FANTASTIC game, also another one is I think it's called your shape fitness evolved. Really good for exercise but fun at the same time! You can spend hours on kinect without even realising it! I'm gonna go on mine after breakfast I think, burn off some of those calories I'm gonna consume tonight :)

    I have to wait for my birthday in 4 weeks before I get my Kinect. I am really looking forward to having a play. Does anyone know how it compares to the Wii?
    Has anyone tried The biggest loser?

    Anyone recommend any kinect games which are 'high exercise' but aren't actually fitness games? (If that makes sense.) Like Dance central which I already have.

    I am bored of the fitness games... want to be able to exercise without knowing I am.. lol

    I am getting a Kinect after January payday, very excited for Zumba and dance central. I'm not really into the fitness games either, prefer sports and dancing :)
