According to The Verge, Microsoft could be working on a game called Kinect Play Fit which will include an accessory, codenamed Joule, that will work as a heart-rate monitor, similar to the bundled with EA Sports Active, or perhaps also like the Wii Vitality Sensor, from Nintendo, which never saw the light of day.
A dashboard update just for this game? Sounds interesting.
They could unveil this one at this year E3, so stay tunned!
