We all though it was great when the Wii first came out with its brilliant sports package which provides endless fun in the home. It has also been proven that some of these games can actually be beneficial! Who would ever a think playing a video game could ever be considered “healthy” in any shape or form?
I still remember using the “thumb exercise” excuse when I got my SNES.
Now though, Black Bean Games are taking it to the next level. NewU Fitness First Personal Trainer is not just another sports game, it is a fully blown fitness trailer. You can see the PR trailer here which has a few words from the trainer working with the team and a demonstration of the game.
It seems that the Wii is quickly becoming far more than just an interactive games console, however, can titles like this really make any impact? I don’t think so.
