The latest Men's Fitness magazine
had an interesting story about fitness and gaming (something we call "exergaming
"). Apparently, EA is working on their own Wii Fit
knock-off (remember, we heard about this
months ago?), complete with their own peripheral. The article states that the new game will fall under the "All-Play
" brand, which is the family-friendly label they use for the Wii. This new peripheral will somehow allow players to attach the Wiimote to their body, measuring how instense they run, squat and do a variety of other exercises, says EA's executive producer Dave McCarthy.
We're not subscribers to Men's Fitness, to be honest, so we don't have the article to confirm any of this, so we're marking it as a rumor. If anybody wants to send us a pic or a scan, please, feel free
. We'll be sure to update the post here.
