Those of you who’ve been with me since I started blogging about exergaming back in 2009 may know that I also ran a few other sites. There was PS3Fitness.com for those who wanted to use the Playstation Move to exercise, XboxFitness.org for those using an Xbox 360 or Xbox One, and of course Nutwiisystem.com for fans of the Wii and Wii U.
Just as I decided to retire the Nutwiisystem name, I’ve also decided to consolidate all my past PS3Fitness.com posts into Gaming.Fit. If you’d like a trip down memory lane, you can browse all my old Wii and PS3 reviews from this site now.
While the exergaming craze that began with the Wii has died out for a while, the concept of “working out without realizing you’re getting a workout” is not dead, not by a longshot.
The biggest thing in the last few years has of course been wearables, thanks to the enormous success of the Fitbit, followed up by smart watches like the Apple Watch (by the way, for those of you keeping score at home, I did buy an Apple Watch but I decided to return it mainly because I didn’t think its short battery life made too much sense for me as a full-time fitness device…I’ll be giving it another shot when Apple Watch 2 launches later this year).
But just round the horizon is brewing a new breed of exergaming. As my last sporadic posts have hinted at, it’s going to be amazing. Check back here from time to time and I’ll be sure to give you the latest!
