A British study
has revealed the playing Wii sports and other Wii games really aren't that much of an improvement over playing a game on the Xbox 360. The Wii gamers only burned an additional 60 calories (about 1/2 a Coke) over their Xbox 360 counterparts. I'm not sure which games they were playing as an hour of Wii Sports
boxing wears me out a lot more than an hour of Mass Effect but the survey does mention that the fake exercise can help convince kids to participate in the real thing.
