I have the Wii. I love zumba, I have both 1 and 2. Today I just tried my Jillian michaels ultimate workout, that was actually a good workout.

I bought the Wii because it was more affordable. However, I do believe a fitness game like Zumba is most likely best played on the Kinect. I do play Zumba on the Wii, I just don't take calories burned or the technique score to heart. It's a lot of fun and I sweat like crazy!

I have trouble going to the gym, so I do Just Dance 2, 3, and 4. The sweet points should be divided by 5 and those are the calories lost. I also do Zumba 2 everyday and they count the calories for you. Yesterday within a hour in which I play Just Dance 4 and Zumba for an hour I burned 1200 calories.

I have an Xbox 360 with Kinect. I have The Biggest Loser game and EA Sports Active 2. Both are decent workout games, though tracking issues with the kinect can be a pain at times.

I prefer Sports Active 2, but I like TBL as well. The Dance Central games are pretty good if you like dancing.

I have a Wii. I love the Just Dance games. Lots of fun and it's a good workout if you pick fast paced songs/difficult routines.

I have the Wii and I enjoy doing the Biggest Loser workouts. But beware that they do a lot with the balance board but you can just say you don't have one and you can still do the exercises. I have tried the Zumba but the Wii is not sensitive to your movements. Sometimes, you are doing the movement, but the Wii is reading it as you are just standing still.

The XBox Kinect has the broadest range of possibilities, and the Kinect is more sensitive and actually tracks your whole body's movement, instead of just your hands holding a wand or other device like the PS3 or Wii do.

You can get great reviews of the games in the Kinect to Fitness team here on SP:

Do be aware you'll need plenty of space; I have a tiny, cluttered living room, so can't really do mine effectively, but I love it.

I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for game consoles/games. I have never tried any of them, so I am totally overwhelmed with all of the options on the market. Let me know suggestions/advice. Thank you :)
