Get ready to shed some pounds

Ubisoft's set to bring a new fitness title to PlayStation Move, with Fit in Six heading to PS3 in March.

The title refers to six core fitness areas – cardio, balance, upper body strength, lower body strength, core strength and flexibility – and will offer tailored activities for targeting each area, which have been developed by "experienced fitness professionals".

Fit in Six will use the PlayStation Eye to display your movements on screen for immediate feedback, while the Move controller is used to track your motions more effectively. The game will also offer downloadable content that will add hours worth of extra workouts to the game, hopefully helping to keep you motivated.

We'll have more on Fit in Six as it arrives.

UBISOFT UNVEILS FIT IN SIXTM FOR THE PlayStation®3 AND WiiTM SYSTEMS

Offering Six Ways to Get Fit with Cardio, Balance, Upper Body Strength, Lower Body Strength, Core Strength and Flexibility

SAN FRANCISCO–January 18, 2011- Today Ubisoft announces Fit in Six™, a new fitness game for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system which also utilizes PlayStation®Move functionality and for the Wii™ system from Nintendo which leverages Ubisoft’s USB camera accessory. Developed by Ubisoft Blue Byte studio in Düsseldorf, Germany, the game separates overall fitness routines into six core elements — core body, upper body, lower body, cardio, balance and flexibility — that help you focus on getting fit and reaching your goals. The workouts have been developed by experienced fitness professionals to ensure that every move is performed precisely and effectively. Fit in Six™ will be available in March 2011.

For the Wii system the USB camera will provide a picture-in-picture view that enables players to compare their own movements to the in-game coach for a more accurate replication of exercises. Fit in Six™ is offered in a bundle package with the Wii-compatible USB camera; the game will also be sold separately.

For the PlayStation®3 system players can upload music to their PS3™ and perform workouts to the beat of their favorite songs. The PS3™ analyzes your playlist and suggests the music that suits the right rhythm for each workout.

Fit in Six™ also offers new add-on content available on PlayStation®Network for the PlayStation®3 system to refresh and enhance players’ workout experiences. The complete content including add-ons for Fit in Six™ adds up to 23 - 24 hours of workout time and include personalized workouts, dance-related fitness programs and a variety of cardio and toning exercises to expand the overall gameplay experience.

I already have 2 fitness titles, Zumba and EA's Sports Active 2. Besides providing a well thought-out workout, what will be the difference between being successful or not, IMO, is how well it motivates one to "play" it.

Using the camera to show yourself on the screen is a good idea, and the lack of that basic function makes Zumba, for instance, fail.

I had EA Active 2 but found the technology extremely poor - it couldnt sense my movement and wouldnt progress through the workout program as it couldnt register that I had finished the movement. Motion sensing is such a large part of EA's game but as it couldnt get this fundamental point correct, I sent it back and was waiting for something for the Move to replace it - hopefully this will be it. I just hope they work out some way of letting you hold the Move controller as well as a weight or resistance band (e.g. wrist strap?)
