Listen, I'm all for EA Sports Active. I think it's a great idea, and since I've used it a bit, I can tell you that it's a pretty good program. That said, the idea that there has to be a more "manly" version is a bit insulting. It's like saying the version of the game you've created isn't good enough, and on top of that, it's also only for women. Creating a game like EA Sports Active NFL Training Camp, due out November 16, isn't just a bad idea, it's an insulting one. The fact that the game is only available on the Nintendo Wii further compounds the fact that perhaps EA isn't as sure of this title as they'd like you to believe.
Don't think I'm bashing the Wii here. I'm not. Well, not right now anyway. All I'm saying is, the target audience for a workout game may be the Wii, but the target audience for a workout game heavily steeped in the NFL experience, isn't. I'm not saying that the 360 and PS3 are more manly consoles, but if you look at the NFL audience when comparing which consoles said audience owns, I'm pretty sure the Wii is pretty far down on that list. Now, even though I didn't get an actual hands-on with the game last week when I was at an EA event in NYC, I did watch the game being played, and quite frankly, it's nothing special. You get to travel around to different NFL stadiums to work out, and you'll do some actual NFL drills like high-stepping through tires and throwing at moving targets, but there's nothing special about the game when compared to either EA Sports Active or Active 2.
Oh, and the game will cost $100. Get the fuck out of here.
