and if you get the moves wrong it counts low even if you are working out hard. Sometimes I just can't get it right- lol. today I did 40 min- warm up hula, cardio boxing 15min, a dancing, boot camp and burned 521 calories. I also either keep moving whille its loading or stop the stopwatch.

I see a HUGE difference. I wear a HRM to do my workout with the game. While the game says I've burned 110 or so calories for a 60 min workout (some of everything), my HRM says I've burned 450 or more for that same time period. I think the difference is that the game can't read your HR so can't really know how many calories your body is burning. The game's count is just based on the input you did (weight/age/sex/height) then figures a "average" number you should burn. But even then the game's count seems way to low.

Wanted one for awhille now so today I went to buy one at Target and they had New balance ones 20% off. I can't wait to try it out with my kinect your fitness 2012 to see the difference in calories
Does anyone else see a big difference? I just have a hard time buying that your burn more calories in the yoga than in the Bootcamp?! It is a touch one but seems pretty fast and can randomly ck between sets whille its loading!
