Adidas's miCoach set for 360 Kinect and PlayStation Move
Monday 06 June 2011
Sports manufacturer Adidas and video game company THQ are teaming up to produce a miCoach game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Professional athletes will appear on-screen, acting as each player's personal coach.
Confirmed for inclusion are Dwight Howard (basketball, Orlando Magic), Kaká (soccer, Real Madrid and Brazil), Tyson Gay (100m & 200m sprint, USA), Jessica Ennis (track & field, GB), Ana Ivanovic (tennis, former WTA #1, Serbia), and Eric Berry (NFL, Kansas City Chiefs).
The miCoach heart rate monitor, or any other monitor with ANT+ compatability, can link up with an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 to provide real-time performance analysis throughout each workout.
2010 saw a slew of fitness games hit the 360 and PS3, such as EA Sports Active 2 and Your Shape: Fitness Evolved, following the trend started by Wii Fit on Nintendo's home console.
