Microsoft has announced that its Xbox Kinect PlayFit game was launched on the US market yesterday, the game is basically a new fitness dashboard for your Xbox and Kinect, and it will be available as a free download from Xbox Live.
The Kinect PlayFit was designed as a new dashboard that will aggregates and tracks number of calories burned by the user as they play a variety of Kinect Games including Dance Central 2, Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012, Kinect Star Wars etc.
Kinect PlayFit lets you view your personal stats over time and see leaderboards that show how you rank against Xbox LIVE members across the globe. Get credit for the calories you burn while having fun with Kinect, and earn Kinect PlayFit Achievements, Gamerscore and Avatar Awards.
Microsoft was also kind enough to let us know that they plan to launch the Kinect PlayFit in other regions later this week, even though no specific details were given with it will be available in countries such as Asia and the UK.
