Earlier today, Microsoft released a new fitness dashboard that tracks the calories you burn as you play certain Kinect games such as Dance Central 2, Kinect Star Wars and Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012.
With the Kinect PlayFit, players can track their stats and the leaderboards that shows how you rank against millions of Xbox Live Members. Every time you play a Kinect game, your burned Calories will be tracked and this feature is good for people who works out.
Here’s some of the highlights of the new dashboard:
First of Its Kind – This is the first ever fitness tracking application on a video game console.
Social Motivation – Kinect PlayFit keeps it social with activity challenges, rankings on leaderboards and integration with the Xbox LIVE community to break a sweat together.
Survey Says – According to a recent survey*nearly 75 percent of respondents believe that video games should include a component that encourages physical activity. Also, 70 percent said that physically active video games can complement or supplement traditional exercise.
