There was a Conference in September to promote Games for Health and ResponDesign participated.
ResponDesign, the creators of Yourself Fitness followed up by bringing us back to reality. The talk kicked off with Yourself Fitness no longer being in stores and there is no sequel in the works.

They also feel having compelling software is what is required to get people to exercise and to solve the obesity epidemic.
No mention of Eye Toy: Kinetics (which we've already established: I hate... too negative and I found the camera to not be very reliable).

Ya, I think that might just motivate me...
