EA runs to support Microsoft Kinect with EA Sports Active 2

EA has announced like Ubisoft that it will be supporting Microsoft's new motion tracking accessory the Kinect when it releases EA Sports Active 2 in November.

Although the game will be available for the Nintendo Wii and PlayStation (using the Eye video camera rather than Sony PlayStation Move) the exciting title amongst the three will be the EA Sports Active 2 for Kinect.

"The EA SPORTS Active 2 console-based fitness programs will deliver true fitness results with an innovative heart rate monitor, wireless tracking, as well as a new online hub to track and share workout data", says EA.

Kinect for Xbox 360 tracks full body movement with true 1:1 motion that will register exercises never before possible and create seamless workout experiences, without ever having to use a controller.

Unique to Kinect for Xbox 360, users will have the ability to navigate workouts with voice and gesture recognition, which allows for a seamless, fluid workout experience says EA.

Included in the packaging users will also get a heart rate monitor that provides constant on-screen monitoring.

EA Sports Active 2 adds 70 new exercises and fitness activities including exercises not possible before the new Kinect system.

It will also offer a 9-week program providing a fitness roadmap to help keep users motivated and on track of their fitness goals.

It seems that now you don't have an excuse for not making it to the gym.
