A new football exergame may get guys off the couch
A few days ago, I noticed a Wii Football on Amazon, set to release later next month. It’s from the same company that produced the calorie-counting Wii tennis racket, and I thought it was just another cute item to add on to Madden games. But it turns out that the pigskin Wiimote skin may be the shape of things to come – a rumor has it that EA Sports is planning a “guy’s” installment in their popular Active exergame line, and it’s going to be based on football-styled training, including instruction on how to make perfect passes. Sounds like a good way to burn off those Super Bowl nachos and beer. Maybe an old Slam Man can be suited up in a jersey and repurposed as a tackling dummy.
