An attempt to make workouts fun

Ubisoft is the latest company to make use of the Kinect for its fitness game but rather than strive for realism, Shape Up tries to be wacky in the hope that you'll work out harder if you're having fun.

Squat into outer space, do push-ups with elephants on your back, vaporize aliens with your abs -- these are just some of the activities featured in Shape Up. Do they look fun? Not for any serious length of time, no. They seem to be short distractions at best.

This'll be out in November 2014 for Xbox One. Prepare your abs.

Two Ubisoft employees did push-ups on stage at the company's E3 showcase today during a demo for upcoming Xbox One exclusive Shape Up.  It was weird, but also fun. That's pretty much a Ubisoft presser in a nutshell, isn't it?  We knew the French publisher's conference had the potential to be bizarre, awkward, or hilarious; but it truly surpassed expectations this year.
