Kinect PlayFit has launched on Xbox Live in the US today and is available for all Xbox Live members to download absolutely free. It'll be launching in other territories outside the US later this week, offering a new fitness dashboard feature that tracks the calories you burn while playing Kinect games.
So, whether you're playing Dance Central, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved or even Kinect Star Wars, Kinect PlayFit will aggregate and track all of your stats, contributing towards your overall position on the global Xbox Live members leaderboard. As well as competing for high scores, you'll also be able to unlock achievements and Avatar awards.
Kinect PlayFit is the first fitness tracking application of its kind on a games console, giving you extra incentive to get shifting the blubber, while earning achievements. Woo hoo and that. Have a look at what the Kinect PlayFit dashboard looks like in the image below.
