I did quite a bit of research before I bought my Xbox. Although wii is good the kinect requires much more movement. If the character needs to jump, you HAVE to jump. Your feet have to leave the floor otherwise it does not register the jump. I think this was the best buy for my family, and I refuse to buy a game that is controller based. There are many games that are fun for children also, Frienanimals is the one my daughters like the best. My niece and I love playing dance central. If you are serious about getting a system do the research it is well worth it.
we just got enough snow to sled overnight last night--lol seems odd for my area. I don't have a gaming system though I have contemplated buying a wii several times. Now I'm really unsure with all the new ones out there like the one you don't need remotes for is that XBox? I get them mixed up anyway I wanted to say that I thought the YouTube idea was a good one. I should try that to see how they all work maybe that would help me pick one.

Ha! I would love to go sledding however, we barely have any snow. I thought about buying zumba for my xbox instead I got the Fitness Evolved 2012. OMG the warm ups alone kill me. LOL I will keep trying though because the number one reason I bought the game was to get fit. I have to say though I told my kids I would never buy a gaming system until I seen the kinect and it was well worth the $ paid for it (and the 4 hours waiting at Meijer Thanksgiving morning to get it for $199). The most helpful thing I have found when checking out games is youtube and watching other's game play. Good luck!
Hello fellow Michiganders. Along with throngs of others I have decided to recommit in 2012 to a health lifestyle. Outdoor excercise (well, we might go sledding today) is a little hard for us this time of year. What is everyone else doing to keep fit indoors? Has anyone tried Zumba for the wii? Is it worth the purchase?
