EA Sports has revealed that as well as supporting Wii, PS3, and Move, EA Sports Active 2 will also be compatible with Xbox 360’s Kinect.

Kinect for Xbox 360 tracks full body movement with true 1:1 motion that will register exercises never before possible to create seamless workout experiences, without ever having to use a controller.

Users will have complete freedom of motion for a deeper, more effective workout, similar to the experience of the EA SportsActive 2 Total Body Tracking system on the PS3 and Wii that uses wireless motion sensors in leg and arm straps.

Unique to Kinect for Xbox 360, users will have the ability to navigate workouts with voice and gesture recognition, which allows for a seamless, fluid workout experience.

Included in the packaging is the innovative EA SPORTS Active heart rate monitor that provides constant on-screen monitoring, allowing users to capture intensity and optimize performance over time.

PS3 and Xbox 360 users will also have the ability to download additional exercises via Xbox Live and PSN to keep their exercises fresh.

EA Sports Active 2 is due for release November 16.
