It would be GREAT if you could add in some Xbox Kinect games into your cardio. I've been having to log it as "aerobics" but not sure how accurate it is. Kinect games have great workout games! My favorite is "Adventure's - Reflex Ridge".

I think a more accurate reading would be if you logged it under one of the Wii exercises that are in the database.

With aerobics you would be much more active than with the Kinect games as your HR would also be elevated more often causing a high burn amount.

That's a good idea, but then comes the problem of what game to choose (wii vs xbox).

What about zumba *on kinect*? I am jumping all over the place, hands in the air, bending shaking... it has a lot of movement and I am sweating after 45 minutes! I think they should include some of the exercises even at a minimal burn level. It would also be nice if you could sync your game scores with MFP, just sayin.

I use the Xbox as well and have been doing the Adventure's. I would love to see some if it's title's added.

I would like to see this as well! Adventure's Reflex Ridge is a favorite of mine as well. Plus at this time I have The Biggest Loser Ultimate Challenge and would love to get others such as Zumba or Fitness Evolved 2012, but the little I do on Xbox right now, I don't even log because I don't know what to log under.

I don't know that Wii would be the same because the Kinect reads your entire body instead of just the remote in your hand. Of course, I have not had or used a Wii, but those who have used our Kinect and own a Wii themselves tend to think they work harder with the Kinect.

I agree with adding all these to the cardio list!!! Im doing Nike+kinect and it kicks my butt. It tells me how many calories im buring... but i think it's more. ohwell and it should sync nike+ with MFP, since that's how i track my runs also...
