Eligible Game Add-ons:

  • Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012

If you’re new to Xbox, you have to sign up for both Xbox Live (the basic account is free) and Xbox Live Rewards.  Also, you may want to download the free Kinect PlayFit app which automatically tracks when and how long you played certain Kinect active games, and lets you compare your calorie burn with your online friends and the Xbox world.
