And the deals just keep coming. I’m not sure how long this will last, but EA Sports Active NFL Training Camp for the Wii, normally $39.95 (and yes, I paid $89.95 for it back in December) is now only a ridonculous $16.05. That’s right, $16.05 for the game, an extra motion controller for your leg, an extra motion controller/heartrate monitor for your arm, a resistance band, and the NFL Training Camp disc.
Considering that extra motion control sensors alone usually cost upwards of $30, this is a veritable steal. It is perfect if you’re getting just a little tired of EA Sports Active 2 and would like to mix up your routine a little. Or, it’s great if you’ve always wanted to work out with a family member or friend but never got around to purchasing the extra controllers (they will work with multiplayer options on both EA Sports Active 2 and NFL Training Camp).
Looking at the landscape of Wii Fitness Games for Christmas 2011, it doesn’t look like EA will be coming out with EA Sports Active 3 anytime soon, at least there’s no indication from EA so far. The only new games appear to be dance games like Just Dance 2, Rhythm Heaven, and a new Zumba (which hopefully is much better than the last one). As for “pure fitness games”, while recent new entrants into the field like Exerbeat and UFC Personal Trainer have been impressive, nothing has yet knocked EA Sports Active 2 and NFL Training Camp from the #1 spot as far as the best exercise games on the Wii go, and it looks like that’ll be the case for the foreseeable future.
