The best Kinect PlayFit games/activites for calories.

I made this thread to help organize the best activities in each game to add PlayFit calories. Any help would be greatly appreciated and will be added to this post. I'll be taking info from the other thread and adding it into this thread also.

Official games:

Big League Sports
- Doesn't Work?

Deepak Chopra's Leela
-"Once you get Leela, do ONLY the "PLAY" side if you want any calories to count." (tmnterminator)
-"Leela: I've burned over 500 on Leela alone from just two sessions... try the harder ones on play, or do the last two on "sequence". I think intuition and power are the big 'burners'." (Dalek Nation)
-"as soon as I got to "Power", it jumped way up, and "Love" is giving just as many. " (DragonessAthena)

Dance Central 2
-"The calorie count isn't so much registered by movement but by song and difficulty" (Thee Elf)

Happy Action Theater
-Director Mode?

Junk Fu
-Just play as is.

Kinect Disneyland
-Works but don't know which specific minigame is the best.

Kinect Sports Season 2
-"I'd say an average of about 30 calories can be had completing a football game or tennis game (3 sets) as well. Darts is the worse, and skiing gives very little as well" (tmnterminator)

Kinect Star Wars
-"Even if you boot up Galactic Dance off right away without leaving the play area, you will sign in as a guest if you just continue. You HAVE to wave on sign in and choose your profile AGAIN before the song starts." (Benmahalf X)
-"it burns around 300 per completed story, so play through the story twice and you'll hit your 600 or should" (Adork4ble)

Let's Cheer!
-Works but don't know which specific minigame is the best.

Sesame Street Once Upon a Monster
-"when i got the calories to register it was on one of the mini games in chapter 2 or 3" (Blarghinator)

Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012
-Works but has same problem as Star Wars with the Kinect ID.
-"Keep activities short to lesson your chance at having the entire activitie's calories forfeited" (Dalek Nation)

Unofficial games:

Just Dance 3
-Adds total calories but doesn't count toward the "600 calories in 4 games" achievement.

Just Dance Greatest Hits
-Adds total calories but doesn't count toward the "600 calories in 4 games" achievement.

Great thread, yamayama; if I figure out which minigame in Kin Sports 2 is best I'll post here. I know each hole of golf gives about 7 calories, but I'll know more tomorrow.

My niece played "Happy Action Theater" the other day using my profile. She must have had a blast, because the next time I turned on Play Fit, my gamertag had burned over 650 calories.

Yep, I'd say an average of about 30 calories can be had completing a football game or tennis game (3 sets) as well. Darts is the worse, and skiing gives very little as well.

Cool thanks. Updated OP with that.

Sesame Street OUAM has been removed from Kinect Playfit. I now only see 10 games inside the app. It has also disappeared from the official Playfit page.

I had tried Sesame Street yesterday and today with no success. I tweeted XboxSupport about it with no response. Looks like MS decided to just get rid of it instead of fixing the issue.

Yep, I noticed today that it was down to 10 games, though I couldn't tell which one it was. Hopefully, they add more.

I believe Dance Central 2 is one of the best games for calories. You'll get about 25 cal for two songs. You can have around 300 cal for a 1 and a half session

Number of calories is different for every person. It's all based on weight you entered.. so technically if you put in a much higher weight you can 'cheat'.

They added a game to it this week. Adidas My Coach or something like that. They would add that and not Just Dance 4. They have two other Just Dance games but I don't own those. Not interested in getting them either. You'd think it would come before something that very few people probably own. Not sure how the games are even picked for it though.

Edit:I haven't opened JD4 yet(it's one of the games in my backlog) so maybe it does count the total calories even though it isn't on the list.

Best thing to do is simply put your weight as the highest possible. It may seem like cheating but Ive found with Your Shape 2012 its the best way to get the app to match what the game says you have burned.

Disneyland is great if you just play minigames. Specifically the ones where you are flying,swimming, etc. and are constantly moving. Ones where you only use your hands and the dancing ones don't seem to give you as many calorie points.

Nike+ Kinect Training should be added to this list. I'm not exactly sure the best way to boost calories for this, but I think it is probably playing Dodgeball over and over again. It will count even if you are just sitting in a chair in front of the TV, but your calorie count doesn't go up that quickly with that method.

Just thought it would be good to add that most the kinect gems will count for this app all of which are required to level up to level 10 and average 400-600 calories per completion so no need to grind for the four 600 cal games when you could work on something a bit more naturally

A side note not all would grant you easy calories such as darts and field goal contest

Got my burn 100 calories in two games and I havent played a single supported game so im assuming that the gems would work for 600 calories will post if they do once I get to that point 2/4 currently

GEMS THAT WORK
Field goal contest - at least 300-400 calories by level 10

3 point contest - 400-500 calories by level 10

GEMS that DONT work
Penalty Saver


Would be really nice if you could update the list so that everyone doesnt have to read through everyones posts
