Once you get Leela, do ONLY the "PLAY" side if you want any calories to count. Though again, not much will register (I'm talking after a "session" of playing for half an hour or so, you might get 50 or so calories burnt)

Played 2 days, got the 2-day achievement, third day it registered as a 3-day streak, fourth day it was back to 1 again. No achievement.
No trouble here either

Weird. Maybe it was because I did it at 11:30 at night? Still should have counted though. Ah well.

Yep, I picked up Leela and it burns so very few calories. I don't know why this "game" was chosen as one of the PlayFit titles. I was actually interested in it, and figured it would help with PlayFit, but no, definitely not a good PlayFit title.

I had the same problem with Star Wars, which is actually a bad game for this (unfortunately it's the only one I have right now.)

The second you step away from the game and re-enter, you are no longer on your profile. You are entered as "guest."

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.

I tried this for 2 hours today, got nothing; did one song, got nothing; then made sure the profile in the upper left of the screen said my gamertag, did one song, and got 13 calories.

What should be in the hundreds is only at 66 at the time of this post. BE CAREFUL IF USING STAR WARS!

BTW there should really be a separate game forum for PlayFit, since each game seems to be quirky and separate threads could be helpful.

So it seems like Leela and Star Wars are two titles to stay away from as far as getting calories...

This happened to me but not my husband. Needless to say I'm freaking annoyed.

It counts calories for Just Dance Greatest Hits and Just Dance 3. I just got done playing Just Dance 3 and checked PlayFit a few minutes ago. My calorie count increased and the Tourist cheevo popped.

The only game of the 11 that says it works with PlayFit I have over 250 calories burned in is Dance Central 2. So since I got Tourist some other games are being counted towards that cheevo as well.

I always enable Sweat Mode on the above two games, I don't know if it has any relevance to the calories being counted for Playfit.

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'. Not sure as I got those calories going for the 'play all sequences' cheevo (still don't have).

Surprised more people aren't talking about YourShape on this thread... I workout with it every day (for nine days now) for at least 45 minutes and I have only 127 calories on it. Been told this has to do with Kinect ID...

Feel free to add me for relay cheevos... have 1k atm and am active daily.

PlayFit doesn't seem to be counting the calories burned on YS:FE2012. I burned like 170 cal one day, but it didn't credit any. Seems to work well with Kinect Sports S2 and Leela.

Anyone else experiencing this?

Yeah, as soon as I got to "Power", it jumped way up, and "Love" is giving just as many.

i have 9236 calories burned if anyone wants to add me for the 100k achievement,

i also have a problem with calories being added to my total calories,i got the 9236 calories from just dance greatest hits (apparantly not supported but heh who's complaining) on loading the app up,since then it has not added any calories to my total,it's counting them in the supported games section,i've gotten over 400 showing on junk fu and another 200+ on just cheer,but this damn app just wont add them to my total calories burned,anyone got any ideas how to fix this?

Stefb: that's a new one. the latest problem I've heard of from other forums is peoples calories being taken away (everyday they have fewer tallied). If you haven't tried deleting/reloading I assure you this doesn't reset your consecutive days count nor your calories burned.

P3rf3ct: unfortunately YourShape'12 is all jacked up for PlayFit. http://forums.ubi.com/forumdisplay.p...s-Evolved-2012
.... this is an ubisoft forum where some good ideas are being tossed around as to why exactly that is. It seems to be a Kinect ID problem (as soon as she says "where did you go", like if you step away for even a second, it stops registering calories toward PlayFit.)

Sorry to double post, didn't want to make a new thread:
since YourShape isn't working for the "burn 600 calories in four games" achievement I need a recomendation. Is Junk Fu worth the 240msp? If I have to break down and do one of the kiddie games which one would u guys recomend for not being painfully boring?

I got it when it was available for free. I definitely would not pay money for this.

i tried deleting it and nothing changed,it's also conning me out of consecutive days,it keeps resetting back to 0 every day even though in mystats it shows i have burned calories every day for the last 3 days and like i said it's still adding them in the supported games tab within the app,just not on my total,got me baffled this one does

I've figured out the PlayFit - Your Shape '12 problem. As soon as kinect loses track of you (whether you duck out of sight or stomp the ground too hard) that exercise's calories won't be counted at all toward PlayFit. Keep activities short to lesson your chance at having the entire activitie's calories forfeited.

I did two things adding up to 62 calories, then did a run. On the run I stomped the floor and the kinect 'hiccuped' just a little bit. After completing the run I checked PF and sure enough, 62 calories counted to me and the 40 from the run didn't. Not sure if an exercise after the run would have counted; atm I'm backing out of game if I accidently get lost by kinect without pausing (pausing beforehand seems to not cause this lose).

Anyone have any tips for calories registering on Happy Action Theater? I played for an hour and a half yesterday and only registered 70 something calories. Today I played for 10 minutes and only registered 1 calorie. Wtf? Is there a certain minigame on there that I should play?

thanks for the tip. I've got this game coming in today and plan on trying what you suggested.

I found out the other day after posting and deciding to go through the game (which takes all of 3-4 hours if you skip the cinematics), that it burns around 300 per completed story, so play through the story twice and you'll hit your 600 or should.

My new struggle is Big League Sports. Picked it up at Gamestop and intend to just return within the seven days but of course it's not picking up anything.

Anyone have success with this title yet?

I'm going to make another PlayFit thread that lists all the games and the best activities to get PlayFit calories in them. I'll keep updating the OP as people make suggestions.

For those that have Junk Fu, a pretty quick way to get 40-50 calories in 3-4 minutes is to swing your arms back and forth like you're power walking during the game as fast as you can, not just chopping at the items coming down the belt.

The game tracks all movement, it's not predetermined like some of the dancing games where you can only burn x calories total during a song no matter how much you actually move. Your calorie meter in Junk Fu will also increase quicker during the bonus rounds when you have to chop and kick and the same time.

I can also confirm after trying them this morning that neither Dance Central or The Biggest Loser Ultimate Workout count calories towards your PlayFit total. Each game does calorie count for it's own in-game stuff.

Yea, Your Shape is definitely buggy for me. Racked up 50 calories that registered in game however, when I went to Playfit, only 8 registered. As far as I could tell, the kinect never lost track of me so I dunno how to make sure to get calories to count.

tmnt: [Your Shaoe '12]What AuntieParticle recommended was making sure at desktop that Kinect recognizes u ("Welcome back, xxxxxxx" in the bottomm corner when you first wave to get its attention). Then enter game, do short activites. For me, just leaning to far to the right was making me lose all my calories (leaning over to open my front door), even though I'd come back before she could say "Where'd you go" or another time, leaning to far forward to pick up my weights.
.
To be honest, after I hit 600 I'm not even going to try for my calories to carry over to PF anymore. Its a struggle. I'm 90% certain the above advice is the reason for you woes with this game

finally got the achievement.
thanks to all the people who helped out
a big FU to those who deleted me right after they got the achievement before i got mine. that's an unsporty behaviour. guess i'm not the only one they deleted once they got it. but luckily i found other people to replace them
