Xbox One is going to help get users in shape. That could be one reason Microsoft has decided to release the new Xbox One seven days before Thanksgiving. That is just about a week before most Americans will be all gathered around in hot, hazy rooms wanting to get back some awareness after devouring all that special holiday food. Family members will likely be there as well. When the Xbox One is launched on Nov. 22, there will be four fitness games that also can be bought to go with it. This will be a great way for the entire family to start working off all the turkey and other nourishment which has been digested.
Kinect Sports Rivals Preseason
Kinect Sports Rivals Preseason is so named because it is a basic teaser in which to hold gamers over until the main version of Kinect Sports Rival comes out in the spring of 2014. The newest Kinect sensor has a much higher sensitivity and it shows through in the jet ski game. The sensor will notice even a slight finger change motion which will have players bounding through the water and skipping from barges. Users will be able to play by themselves or they can dare a friend and play in a split-screen style.
If users have a Xbox Live Gold subscription which goes through December of 2014, the Xbox Fitness service will put together a collection of various workout videos that have been made by top fitness trainers. Some of the trainers include Tony Horton, Tracy Anderson and Jillian Michaels. When players start to get use to how everything works, Xbox Fitness will act like a personal trainer for the user, making tailored workout routines that can last between 10 to 60 minutes. It is all based on what the user’s previous workout performance and history has been when monitored by the Kinect sensor. Xbox states that the sensor will allow users to get into top shape and even can observe a user’s heart rate.
Zumba Fitness World Party
Zumba has become very popular, so much so that Zumba Fitness World Party has been created so players can do it anytime they chose in the privacy of their own home. Users travel all over the world while they are working out the Zumba way to nearly 45 new songs. The players will be exercising to the beat and moves of various top-notch instructors, one of whom is Beto Perez, who is the Zumba founder.
Just Dance 2014
If users like to dance, they will enjoy the Just Dance 2014 game. Now instead of just two people getting to move around like games before it, Just Dance 2014 allows for up to six dancers for each song. It also gives each player his or her own choreography. There will many songs to burn calories too and if players put the game in “Just Sweat” mode, it will also track calories burned.
With these new titles coming out, it just gives players something more to be thankful for on Thanksgiving Day, when they are able to spend all their extra time with family members not seen for an entire year. With everyone together, the Xbox One can help users and also family members start to get in shape, just in time for Christmas.
