Kinect PlayFit launches for Xbox Live, tracks all of the calories you burn playing 'Star Wars'


Get fit playing "Star Wars?" That's the dream, isn't it? Microsoft is looking to make that dream a reality with its Kinect PlayFit, a new fitness dashboard for the Xbox Live that helps users track burned calories across Kinect titles like "Dance Central 2," "Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012" and, yes, "Kinect Star Wars." The dashboard features "social motivation," including rankings, leaderboards and community integration. PlayFit is launching today as a free download for all US-based Xbox Live members. It'll be hitting areas outside the US later this week, so everyone can break a sweat in a galaxy far, far away.
