Dance Dance Revolution

Alright, it's definitely a trend, this idea of incorporating real exercise into gaming. Now you can get fit while you play even if you can't afford the $1200 Power Grid joystick. If you've been in an arcade in the last two years or seen Lost In Translation, you've seen those dancing fools going crazy trying to keep the beat with on screen dance-off opponents. Maybe it looks silly if you're as arrhythmic as I am, but it turns out, people who are addicted to Dance Dance Revolution are getting a serious workout. It makes sense, since the game gets faster and more intricate as you get better.
Check out some of the personal stories of people who've slimmed down on GETUPMOVE. Matt Keene says he's lost 150 lbs. playing DDR.
DDR is available for XBOX and PS2 for about $40 and the dance pads (also about $40) and other accessories are available at DDRFreak. The newest version of the game, DanceDanceRevolution Ultra Mix2, will be available later this year from Konami Arts.
