They're doing what Nintendo did with "Wii Fit", except this time the idiots who will go gobble up the XBone will say "It's so good! No other console has this!".

Only pro I can see over the Wii version is the fact that kinect can measure how well you're doing. That's about it though.

Im not a fan of microsoft either, but honestly this has potential to really bad ass. Now if the service still makes you pay for the workout programs seperately, then its pretty much charging me $50-$100 to tell me how hard im breathing. Thats stupid. But if, just if, that subscription covers access to the workouts listed above, then im sold.

It's entirely different than Wii Fit. Rather than a bunch of silly gimmicky exercises and routines, they're taking proven programs like P90X and Insanity and expanding on them by monitoring form, giving feedback and tracking progress.

It's really more an expansion of some of the best home workouts available by actually putting the Kinect to good use. If you've ever done one of these programs you know one of the biggest obstacles with them is the fact that you're on your own throughout, which can lead to poor form, bad results or possible injury. Having something tracking your progress throughout that can fill in these gaps is tremendous for people who use these workouts, and tbh may just sell me on the Xbox One (provided the programs come free rather than having to buy them again like MilehighMario mentioned).

Eh, I'm not feeling it. I'll stick with my old ass Bowflex and manual treadmill.

Work out while skyping with your friends and watching TV on the Xbone. Gaming console? What's a video game?
