Microsoft wants a piece of the exercise pie started by Nintendo's "Wii Fit" as they their self have developed "National Family Fitness Day"

We all know gaming started out for kids and teenagers.  Then came the Nintendo Wii which incorporated parents and even grandparents. Now the new thing is "gaming exercise".

Following Nintendo's lead, Microsoft now talks about future plans for a exercise game like Wii Fit. Labeled "active gaming", Microsoft plans to release "Dance Dance Revolution 2" for the XBOX 360

The game contains 74 songs, 24 initially available and 50 that need to be unlocked, either through normal play or purchasing the songs with Dance Points accumulated through Dance Master Mode.

Who said gaming is unhealthy?
