Turn Your Living Room Into A Gym With Fit In Six

This past weekend, we talked about getting in shape. If you need help, and you want to combine your game time with your exercise time, you should pay attention.

Ubisoft has revealed Fit in Six, the new fitness game for the PlayStation 3 and Wii; both versions will utilize the respective motion sensing systems for each platform. Developed by Ubisoft Blue Byte studio, the title separates all-encompassing fitness routines into six elements: core body, upper body, lower body, cardio, balance and flexibility. The exercises you will perform "have been developed by experienced fitness professionals to ensure that every move is performed precisely and effectively." PS3 owners can upload music to the system and work out to their favorite tunes and best of all, the console will actually analyze your play list and select music that best suits each routine. You can also expect fresh add-on content on the PSN; this, combined with what comes in the box, will offer up to 24 hours of total workout time. That's enough to keep you occupied for a while, right?

Fit in Six will launch in March and to learn more, visit the game's official site. Sweating is good.

I'm not sure I need a video game to help get me exercise, but it might not be a bad idea to get a decent fitness game for a quick workout. I suppose I'll have to invest in the Move eventually.

I wouldn't mind something like this for a good cardio workout, but most ubisoft games are more cheesy than actually helpful. At least the ones I've seen.

More drival.

It's not designed to be a quality AAA title dude. It's designed to give people an in house exercise routine (with trophies!!!!). The double major degree I got included phys. ed. as a major, and although this isn't the type of thing I would use to exercise, I'm 100% on board with anything that might motivate someone else to get a little exercise. I already know of one person for whom trophies would be a motivator!

I believe he already got some EA game that has motion sensors, but I forget the name.

Also, Ubisoft has been doing alright. I appreciated the PSN Scott Pilgrim vs. The World game, and you're effing CRAZY about Assassins Creed.

What?!?! You want it to go back to the way it was with AC1 or something? Are you kidding me? AC2 is one of my favorite games, and although Brotherhood has screen tearing issues from time to time, it doesn't affect gameplay, and it's another great improvement to the series with TONS of extra stuff not found in the previous title! And the online multiplayer is SO much more fun than silly ol' COD!

I just wish you could back up your statements more often, because this truly makes no sense.

how does it not effect the gameplay, the missions are TOTALLY different!
AC2 was such a fun game, ACB is a pain in the A$$ because your constantly avoiding guards which was the games best strength.
the combat in AC2 was near perfect, was by far the best part of the game, so ubisoft cut it out of almost every mission.
i could put up with a stealth mission in a blue moon, but almost all the levels are strict stealth!
than theres all the bugs, as i have said multiple times every single level froze on me, and every single level froze on me to the point i could not progress i had to reset my ps3.
you may enjoy spending 30 minutes progressing in a mission, than have the game freeze so you have to reset your console and redo everything.
but i dont!
ACB has more bugs, and worse bugs than freaking fallout new vegas!

The fact that you said every single mission froze on you tells me you're full of crap.

You're other points not only do not make sense, but they aren't true either.

Come back when you're actually able to refute the points I made instead of making up your own false ones while avoiding my true points.

I just wanna say the game is called assasins creed for a reason. Stealth. if u hace a problem actually controlling an assasin your playing the wrong game.

Also in regards to the combat. AC1 and 2 were ok in that department. I personally dont like a game that makes me rely on completely using counter attacks. Brotherhood got rid of that an the combat is more fluid, and you actually feel like an assasin with skill! Not a run n hide type of player.

If they really want people to exercise they should make the new COD game a FPS-workout genre game, the world would get a whole lot more fit. (or COD wouldn't sell, either way is a bonus for most)

He likes it!

To be honest, I picked it up last night for my wife and I. I'm pretty impressed by what it does so far. I actually plan on writing a user review today. (You don't have to delve into it too deeply to review it. You pretty much know exactly what it is after an hour or two of poking around.)

It's a nice cost effective measure for people who don't have a lot of professional fitness experience or who are merely exercising to be healthy. It's definitely (and obviously) not a good option for people training for anything competitive, like at the semi-professional level.

But for your average person, it allows you to set up pre-made training plans and you can customize your own. It tracks your calories and heart rate, and it even keeps track of whether or not you stuck to your training plan! It rewards your efforts in the form of trophies, and tracks all progress in a journal. It gives you weekly, monthly, and even tri-monthly goals, and tracks your progress on those goals.

You even get a choice between two trainers so you can select the style of motivation you appreciate. Do you want the chick who is encouraging, or the guy who reminds you when you need to push harder to meet your goals?

Anyways, I watched my wife on it for about an hour, and I poked around for 2 hours or so out of interest, so I'll probably write a user review today. I have a phys ed degree, so hopefully I can shed some light on the pro's and con's to such a training program.

I just re-read what you wrote.

It's not for the Move. It comes with it's own motion trackers and heart rate monitor.
