In an effort to inspire the masses to get off the couch this Sunday, Kinect for Xbox 360, the official console sponsor of the NFL, and NFL PLAY 60 has announced a challenge to fans and gamers across the country to help make Feb. 5, 2012, “The Most Active Super Bowl Sunday Ever.”
NFL PLAY 60 ambassador and Super Bowl XLIV MVP Drew Brees were joined by kids from an Indianapolis-area middle school in a press conference from the NFL’s Super Bowl media center to outline the details of the “Kinect for Xbox 360 Super Sunday Challenge.”[ Also Read: Microsoft Imagine Cup Grants for Students ]
In the spirit of NFL PLAY 60, which encourages kids to get 60 minutes of physical activity daily to fight the childhood obesity epidemic, Xbox and Brees are challenging families to participate in a total of 60 minutes of controller-free active fun with Kinect for Xbox 360 on Sunday before or after the Super Bowl.[ Also Read: Netflix Extends Xbox Support to Latin America ]
“As a father of two, I appreciate the importance of making sure kids stay active,” said Brees. “That’s why I’ve embraced the challenge of making this ‘The Most Active Super Bowl Sunday Ever’; I’ll be leading the effort by spreading the message and challenging families to get in 60 active minutes this Sunday. Playing Kinect for Xbox 360 is a fun way to achieve this goal, so join me in embracing this challenge by posting your Kinect photos and videos on the Xbox Facebook and Twitter pages.”[ Also Read: Pink Nintendo for Lovers on Valentine’s Day ]
Kinect for Xbox 360 provides controller-free games and entertainment that use your whole body to play. Kinect offers a natural and interactive way for kids to get off the couch and have fun while meeting their 60 minutes of daily activity — particularly when it’s too cold or too hot to be outside.
For families visiting Super Bowl Village in downtown Indianapolis, the Kinect NFL PLAY 60 FanDome provides a fun, active, immersive, 360-degree inflated dome with full-body gaming on Kinect for Xbox 360. Also, on Feb. 1, Microsoft celebrated Kid’s Day at the NFL Experience. Xbox 360 is a premier home entertainment and video game system from Microsoft.
