It's just getting started. Official fitness box. This is one point that Kinect will not concede. Would like to know more about the PS4 Eye. But not having it bundled is letting M$ own a huge chunk on the casual market.
Riderz1337  +   204d ago
You can get a PS Eye bundle if you want.

2 PS4 controllers, a PS4 console, Killzone Shadow Fall and the PS Eye all for 499 (Same price as Xbox One).
Bigpappy  +   204d ago
Ok. But what is the incentive to do that. The playrooms is not enough to drive most people to pickup an Eye with PS4. Some I am sure will for their own reasons, But that will be a slow process to get enough out there to get the needed 3rd party support.
Riderz1337  +   204d ago
Lol I just thought you wanted a PS Eye so I was suggesting it to you. I am getting this bundle, but not for the PS Eye. That is just an extra device for me, as it will mainly be used by my younger brother and since I already have the PS Move I might as well get the new camera.

I am mainly getting that bundle because it gives an extra controller as well as Killzone Shadow Fall.
Bigpappy  +   204d ago
You really don't need to explain why your are getting the camera. You already passed initiation. They are not going to toss you out over this. But I kind of understand the pressure. When did you get that "younger brother" by the way? Is he older than your 'younger sister'? /wink-wink
NukaCola  +   204d ago
For $100 more, you get

Killzone $60
PS4 Duel $50-60
PS4 Eye $60

I think it is hard to miss the incentive for the bundle.

You can do that fitness stuff for a lot less money and easier.
Mystogan  +   204d ago
Its free for a year? What do you mean a lot less money?

P90X and Insanity are very expensive. And we get it for free.
mhunterjr  +   204d ago
How? Through piracy? There's no way you could purchase P90x, insanity, a heart rate monitor, and a person to critique your form for a year with just $60.
BluEx610  +   204d ago
@Mystogan Think he means you can do the fitness stuff without buying a $500 console + $60 XBL Subscription....

If you're using a video game for fitness you're doing it wrong.

Don't make this lame announcement seem like a cool thing. Video gamers don't care about fitness games. Fitness buffs don't care about fitness video games. Go check Bodybuilding.com and see how many people use a video game.
OrangePowerz  +   203d ago
@Blue that's exactly what I meant.
Pogmathoin  +   204d ago
People exercise the finger here...
OrangePowerz  +   204d ago
Don`t know for you, but I exercise 3 times a week for 2 hours.
Biggest  +   204d ago
With a video game, OrangePowerz?
Eonjay  +   204d ago
I'm still not getting an Xbox but I think this is cool.

you know you dont need to use it,
wont impact gamers in anyway
OrangePowerz  +   204d ago
What I wonder is how much money MS wasted with that instead of you know spending it on game development.

The thing that MS does that irritates me the most is spending huge amounts of money for stuff like that or 1 month exclusive DLC instead of building up more great dev studios. Spending some money on that stuff is to be expected, but MS is spending ridiculous amounts of money on those things that could be used better.
dark-hollow  +   204d ago
Orangepowerz

Yeah, that 1 billion dollars dedicated to games and studios that ms has invested truly shows that they aren't spending enough on games /s
maniacmayhem  +   204d ago
@OrangePowerz

I guess they wasted money on Ryse, Deadrising 3, Titanfall, Quantum Break, Killer Instinct, D4, Crimson Dragon....

I think you get my point.

If you're going to be full of sh%t at least try and be better at it.
mhunterjr  +   204d ago
This will be a huge hit... Horrible commercial though...
nigelp520  +   204d ago
Is this free?????
riceking  +   204d ago
for the first year then no....
Riderz1337  +   204d ago
In the trailer description for the official Xbox Channel it says:

"Get unlimited access free with Xbox Live Gold for a limited time."

So you get it for free if you are an Xbox Gold member (AKA, it's not free) and then I guess after a certain time has passed you have to pay for Xbox Gold as well as a subscription for this fitness thing.

Sort of like Netflix, where you pay for Xbox Gold membership to pay for Netflix.

1 year is more than enough to get ripped.
Riderz1337  +   204d ago
@Mystogan, What is your point? It's not free because you need Xbox live Gold, so essentially you'll need to be a member for a year. Almost as if you're paying for a 60$ game in this case.
mhunterjr  +   204d ago
Can't say this is a bad deal, but the words unlimited and limited shouldn't be used in the same sentence... MS will figure this pr thing out one day...
first1NFANTRY  +   204d ago
Ahh just the hardcore game I've been waiting for. The anticipation is killing me /s
Goku781  +   204d ago
Wait on that Kinnect Buns of Steele, that's the one to watch. Ready for those hip hop abs?

Bigpappy  +   204d ago
M$ has already show plenty of Hardcore games. With Christmas ahead, it is time to show those casuals some love. Sony is trying a little, but I suspect they will show some more really soon. I don't see them ignoring that huge market and letting M$ run away with all that cash.

@OrangePowerz: You mean mom is not going to get little Johnny one of those new consoles everyone is putting on the hot toys list? And look mom it even come with the Kinect so you and Jean can play the dance games and talk to the TV.

Keep it real Orange.

Next Gen consoles will be hard to find this year and casual gamers are not the ones that buy either of the consoles this year.
Silentscope  +   204d ago
As someone who loves to workout this excites me tremendously.
dazzrazz  +   204d ago
shovel-ware
STANK08  +   204d ago
It's quite cool actually.Now on the other hand, Knack and Octodad are shovel ware.
majiebeast  +   204d ago
Said no real gamer ever.
PFFT  +   204d ago
CORRECTION!
Said no Sony fanboy ever.

Stank08 i highly agree.
BUT too call it shovel ware would be disgrace to those titles. At least those shovel ware titles tried to be good. Whack and Octodad look boring as hell.

" look boring as hell. "

Nope sorry we are not talking about 900P Ryse today.
memots  +   204d ago
How about going to the gym ffs.

PLay sport and gtfo of the house. Then when you come home play some real games.
Redgehammer  +   204d ago
If that's what you're into.
jgrigs09  +   204d ago
Sir, all those people you saw on there are for at home training. Not, for the gym. Try doing P90X, I bet you'll shit your pants.
memots  +   204d ago
Like literally...
DiRtY  +   204d ago
Since you are a professional lifestyle consultant, who tells people what to do: My girlfriend likes fitness games and plays them quite frequently and she dislikes "real games" as you called it.

Do I have to tell her she is wrong with her preferences, because "memots" on N4G said so or should I just break up already? The 2nd option would be quite hard, because we are in a relationship for almost 5 years and I love her.

PLEASE MEMOTS TELL ME WHAT TO DO. YOU ARE THE MASTERMIND AND YOU KNOW THE ONLY WAY PEOPLE SHOULD LIVE THEIR LIFES
memots  +   203d ago
I think people need to get out more. I play hockey, I go the pool and I bike , it's about human interaction and it's about nature and not being in front of a screen all the time, I do that enough with work.

People don't like the gym fine , but I still think the better option is to get out.

And since you are asking my opinion, I say no don't leave your girlfriend if she put with you for all these years then she is a keeper.

this is the best thing i seen from the x1.lord knows a lot of gamers need to get off their bums and get active.most of the time when i work,i see these smelly,over weight gamers men and women coming to buy buy games.they see me and say things like i shouldn't be playing games because of the way i look.i never knew you couldn't be in shape and play games.(sarcasm)the difference between me and them is.i take the time out to take care of myself,mind and body.i'm sony fan but this is my killer app for the x1.too bad most gamers are going to be talking to the kinect cam with Mc'D's and a soft drink in their mouth instead of trying to better themselves.
DEEBO  +   204d ago
yeah going to the gym is great.but this is a perfect way to switch up your workout.to be honest,i'm a little jealous ps4 is not getting this.i tried the biggest loser and the nike trainer on the 360. this a big step up from those titles.
scott182  +   204d ago
I think that looks good, really good use of the camera.
BLAKHOODe  +   204d ago
I've never heard of anyone actually getting in-shape, because of an Xbox Kinect fitness game. I mean, it seems like a good idea and there is obviously a fitness market, but I don't think a lot of gamers worry too much about their health. That's 20 minutes a day, 3 times a week they would rather be chasing achievements.
