E309 Media | Your Shape Debut Trailer on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Following the successes of Wii Fit and, so far, EA Sports Active, Ubisoft have happily jumped onto the exercise train with their own attempt - Your Shape, a Wii title that, curiously in light of Microsoft's Natal announcement, uses a USB camera to scan players and track their motion.

The game allows use of the Wii remote to select options, etc., but generally uses a hands-free approach so that users that utilise their own work out equipment. Workouts will be adjusted according to how you're responding to them.

That's about all we know for now. Here's the debut trailer:

The key difference I think is that Microsofts system is a true 3D deduction of the bodys position, using a stero camera and extrapolating a biped from the data.

Thus that biped can be used in all sorts of games where body or arm motion is usefull.

This, on the other hand, seems to be just a 2D capture of body-shape, probably scaleing an internal avatar to fit. Good enough for what Ubisoft is doing here, for sure. But not in the same league.

Id point out though, that despite claims by many, Microsofts system isnt a wiimtoe killer. Its strengths are quite different.
