EA Sports Active heads to the PS3
Come autumn all PS3 owners will be able to dust off their running shoes, break out the Lycra shorts and work up a sweat as EA have announced EA Sports Active 2.0. Are fitness games really worth the money?
The original EA Sports Active wasn’t a bad product at all. Where Wii Fit took an almost passive stance on fitness, EA Sports Active ramped up the workout levels, with a wide variety of activities that used the supplied arm and leg straps.
EA Sports Active 2.0 will come with new straps, which include the addition of motion sensors. We hope these straps are a bit more robust than the old ones, as they had a habit of snapping if used by anyone stronger than a five year old.
Gamers will be able to track and share workout data via an online hub – we can’t wait to show the whole world how unfit we are.
New workouts will also be available to download from the PSN.
If this game is as good as its predecessor then it will definitely be worth a look – although we think it’s a shame the Wii Balance Board activities will be lost, as they were some of the best bits.
Will anyone be limbering up for this later on in the year?
