Kinect For XBOX | Fun That's Good For You!

Your workout your way.

Kinect for Xbox 360 is changing the game. Well, it's changing how you play games. 

Controller-free gaming means full body play. Kinect responds to how you move. So if you have to kick, then kick. If you have to jump, then jump. You already know how to play. All you have to do now is get off the couch.

Games are more amazing when you are the controller. Literally. Pet a tiger, battle against the dark side, or race supercars from your living room. It's all part of the fun with Kinect.

When you play Kinect your whole body is the controller. That means with every jump or kick, you'll be moving your body and having fun. It's not only a good time, it's good for you.

Fitness experiences for everyone.

Serious about your fitness goals? Can't get your sports fix outside? Want to break a sweat without realizing it? With Kinect you can engage in a variety of traditional fitness routines or have fun with dance and sports favorites. Kinect offers a fun, engaging way for players to get fit and stay active.
