Video game helps players lose weight

Now here's a new one: Video Game Helps Players Lose Weight. Who would have thought that something good could come out of kids' fascination with video games? It seems that Konami's Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) game is helping players stay more active and lose weight. At $1.00 to $1.50 for a six-minute session at the local video arcade, it's not the cheapest way to lose weight. You're better off spending the $40 for the PC version (there also are versions for the PlayStation, PlayStation 2, and XBox) and $40 more for a dance pad. See GETUPMOVE.COM for testimonials and more information, and check out the DDR Freak fan site for tips, hints, cheats, etc.
