WTK: Wii vs. Kinect for Workouts

Hey ladies! So the FH wants to get me a Wii or Kinect for Christmas because:


1. They're fun.


2. I always complain that I don't want to leave the house to workout.


3. I often wonder out loud how well the wii/kinect workout games work.


(Doesn't he get points for picking up on the oh-so-subtle hints?!)


So, I'm trying to figure out which one to get and your opinions are needed! If you've played any kinect or wii workout games tell me what you liked or didn't like about it. Any recommendations?

I don't have the Kinect, but I do have the Wii. I've played the following movement games for Wii:


EA Sports Active - rank 8/10 - the elastic bands will eventually break over time and you'll have to replace them


EA Sports Active - 8.5/10 - sequel to Active, more variety of workouts and routines are more varied than the first game 


Golds Gym Dance Workout - 7/10 - has some fun songs like from Lady GaGa, but it's kinda hard to follow the choreography


Just Dance - 8.5/10 - great selection of songs and choreography, excellent to play with friends at a party as well


Zumba Fitness - 9/10 - great choreography and choice of workout levels/durations (btw, according to reviews on Amazon, the Kinect version of this is amazingly bad). For a more detailed review of it, see my thread here: http://www.projectwedding.com/post/list/zumba-fitness-for-the-wii

We just got the Kinect last week and LOVE it! We got one of the fitness games and I can already feel it working! It really kicks your butt!
