Cyclebike Cycling Sports 2 Announced

Playstation 3 News

If you are a fitness nut and want a cheaper option than the $2000 treadmill, then you may want to look at the most unlikely source… video games. Well, Bluemouth Interactive has just announced that the Cyberbike Cycling Sports 2 bundle is heading to Sony’s console. Hang on… where’s number 1?

This is what it is: a game which is controlled by an exercise bike connected through the Playstation 3’s Bluetooth. The bike has built in magnetic resistance to adjust for to the rider’s strength and height in order to give them the appropriate challenge. It’s compact as well so you can play it wherever you want.

The software that comes with it has several modes of play set in eight different levels and four environments. Story mode involves players riding through the levels clearing pollution. Then there’s fitness mode, challenges based on time, distance or calories for regimes and even online multiplayer.

Bluemouth Interactive’s Marketing Manager David Tipton had a few words on the announcement:

“The Cyberbike Cycling Sports 2 bundle is an amazing product. This bundle offers health conscious gamers a fun and engaging way to mix game play in glorious HD graphics, whilst working up a sweat at the same time. It affords buyers an opportunity to get a solid work-out without leaving the comforts of home. Lastly the Bluetooth connectivity allows a convenient, wireless interface between Cyberbike and PS3 console

This accessory, along with the many other accessories in our broad range, enhances the video-gaming experience for game-players. Never before has anything like this been available on the PlayStation3 format. This bundle is also a perfect and unique gift for Mums and families this Christmas”.

It will be $299.95 and available in late October.

And they say that you can’t get physical with video games! Bah!

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!

    $300 seems like a goodish deal…..I bought the EA Fit and though inevitably ran out of motivation or found beer more satisfying. With this maybe I can ride and drink beer.
