    When you are playing a ps3 game, or a virtual reality game, do you move a lot in your arms and like your legs? I do feel like that, a turd I read in an article saids "Kids these days, spend up to 50 hours in call of duty, they are not getting in their excerise in"

    It does help out the arms, also it does help out with hand eye corridination too, also with the Wii and heavy portable Nintendo Switch, you build up some mass.

    Seriously? You're saying that playing a computer game is exercise? No way is that activity, in any form going to give you much benefit in terms of physical exercise.
    Hand eye coordination yes, but physical exercise? No way, unless your game involves you running on a treadmill.

    There's some truth to both sides of the argument. Games involving more movement are healthier than those where you're totally iimmobile. But they're no substitues for exercise either.

    Picking up your switch might keep your muscles from wasting away to nothing, but you're not going to be "building any mass" that way.

    Well its true from both side. It kind of charge your reflexes but also at the same time playing for long hours can damage your eyes and brains.

    Excatly I was not focusing on the tredmil or anything, I was thinking of like adding it on where I am able to swing back and forth too, it is about sometimes on the weight of the objects too, sure I am not being able to sit for long periods of time and play through a game, i have to keep up typing and experimenting with different words to keep my mind active.

    As well as being able to see how it is strong and able to hold like a cup of coffee :)

    Yeah sorry, I was being a bit facetious with that cycling post. I've actually got a PS3, with move controllers, and I can certainly say that some of those games involved a lot of movement. Playing games like Sports Champions, you could definitely work up a sweat. Quite realistic, and great fun to play. Pity that more quality games weren't produced for this hardware really.

    Pity on how the siaxis controller does not do much else these days, hated it duration of Beyond Two Souls, I littearly broke the game in two after the second level part.. I wish you could just skip it and go into different areas. Sure they spend all that money on just motion cimaetech but they did not have the time to fix the camera so you can acutally see the entire level.

    Pity how the full potentual of PS3 is still lingering, it can surpass the graphics, maybe as much as the Xbox-4k Ultra edition hahaaa :)

    Linger in the shadows - helps with the sixas controller as well, as even turn the controller around, with a lot more options in the game itself. I think its only for ps3, but could be wrong.
