Video games can sometimes falsely be perceived as a sedentary activity. However, our partnership with the Department of Health’s Change4Life Campaign indicates the positive role video games can play in promoting an active and healthy lifestyle.
Nintendo’s Wii Fit Plus is sold with the Change4Life logo on the box. Following the success of the Nintendo Wii series, Microsoft have launched the Kinect console, where your body becomes the controller and a series of cameras and microphones recognise movement and voice to reproduce it on screen. Similarly, Sony have also released their own motion-sensitive PS3 Move controller meaning that the top three console manufacturers all have active gaming systems.
