Anyone have the wii or xbox kinect? What do you think about them?

I have them both and I don't like either of them. I find it takes too long to change exercises or change songs. I would rather do a workout video. How about you?

  • We bought the XBox Kinect when it first came out. I can't say I am 100% committed to exercising with it though. I'd say I use it more for fun. I have the Zumba Fitness and the Dance Central games... I like them both, but it's not something I do regularly. I enjoy walking at the mall while listening to my iPod more than anything else!!

  • I have the kinect and I love it. We play alot of games as a family, especially dance central. It doesn't feel like a workout when I'm having fun with my kids, that's why I think I like it so much.

  • We debated between getting the Kinnect or Wii and ended w/ the XBox! We don't use is as often as we thought we would. We have had it for a few months only. The kids use the XBox 360 w/out the Kinnect for different games. It is a lot of fun and there are things we can do as a family. Games are pretty spendy tho. About $50 on sale. A lot more than WII games and WII seems to have more games geared towards my kids likes. You can get the games on ebay for a little less than at the store. All in all I probably would have gotten the WII (course then you need the extra access for that!!)!

  • We have a Wii and a PS3 with Move. I wish we used them both more but the kids aren't big fans of either. I have Wii fit with the EA sports fitness and really like it. Just Dance is awesome too! The move games are better quality graphics by far!
