This was posted as an online deal lastnight and since expired but I've just had a call from a friend that works for Blockbuster and it's now £9.99 in store.

My local (Tewkesbury) currently have 2 in stock and the price in nationwide. From what I gather, these are normally kept behind the counter so you might have to ask for it.

For those that have a PS3, the price has been reduced to £30 if thats of any use to anyway.

No, brand new!

Xbox 350 - £50 down to £9.99
PS3 - £50 down to £30

My friend thinks that it might be a price error but until head office states otherwise, they should be marked up at the sale price.

Heat from me as I just picked one up in Lincoln at this price. :D

There was one more behind the counter but I've a feeling one of the staff had his eye on it.

well the PS3 version ain't 'clunky' and that's been down to a tenner from Asda online (expired now, but a good indication that you can get it cheap). I'm 4 weeks into my workout and have been enjoying it immensely.

Don't have experience of the Xbox360 version, but am happy to recommend the PS3 version

FunkyMonkeyDooDa - are you finding this game is really helping you with fitness/weight loss?

I've just bought the only copy they had in my local store as I have a problem with high blood pressure so the heart rate monitor that comes with this is ideal for my needs.

I just don't want to waste time planning workouts if after a month you can't feel any difference if you know what I mean.

Yeah 360 version is clunky lots of others have said the move programmed version is better.

Just rang the Kempston one and they sold their 3 copies yesterday :(

Got the 360 version. Couple of minor gripes with the menus etc but on the whole it works well. After a workout I feel like I've worked hard so reckon it will work well in conjunction with a good diet.

Got the wii version last week and I can confirm the workouts are really tough your muscles ache and you really work up a sweat

the wii and PS3 ones are supposedly more accurate, seems they hadn't really got to grips with programming for kinect for the 360 version and it was a bit rushed out the door.

Cex sell EA active 2 for ps3 for £2!!! looks like the ps3 version didnt do to well then

The game alone without the peripherals is useless though. Ps3 version has two tracking devices, plus a heart rate monitor. Kinect version just as heart rate monitor.

Had to demand the staff at my local blockbuster scan it as he assured me the price on the sticker (£70) was the price it was. It scanned at £9.99, embarrassed him but this hotukdealer won :) thanks op!

EA Sports Active 1 was on Wii only.
Still hoping Asda deliver the PS3 version of this that i ordered for £13, but that might be doubtful seeing as the item has been deleted from their website and my order status says "on back order" still.

Though customer service reassured me through a phone call that stock would be in within a couple of weeks, so who knows...

Anyone know of a decent place to get the PS3 version brand new for around £20 or under? My Asda and Sainsburys didnt seem to have any stock out at the £20/25 mark people have quoted.

Mumjit - sorry, not been on the site for a while, so forgive my rudeness in not responding earlier.

This is an honest opinion. I've been using this on the PS3 for just over 3 weeks. You're supposed to do the prescribed workouts four times a week... and I have been sticking to it.

I used to be fit about 7 years ago, but lets just say that things have slid south and I've piled on about 3 1/2 stone since. 7 years ago I was in the gym for about 2 1/2-3 hours three times a week. The thing to remember about these work outs are that they are intensive (they WILL get you into a sweat), but they're only 40-50 minutes long including warm ups/downs and tutorials. So, if you follow the regime it certainly won't be as effective as an entire morning in the gym. But that isn't the point. I got into this because at such a cheap price it's worth it and I don't have time anymore to be a body fascist and my legs were getting progressively weaker.

My experience of the program has been overwhelmingly positive - the only downside being that occasionally the sensors don't seem to work - I think this is more about you not being exactly in the position you should be - easy when your beginning your workout, not so easy if you're huffing and puffing and your legs and arms are sore. There IS enough here to keep you interested and each 'workout' is different to the last. More to the point, each workout gets progressively harder. Also, during the course of the week you focus slightly more on one specific ability (cardio, legs, arms etc.). Now this may seem unimportant but I've noticed that mondays are a killer for me as it's very cardio with little let-up whereas fridays is fun because it's more about arms. Everyone will be different. And most importantly of all - it's fun and you feel much much better for it.

Right, waffle almost over, but I do hope it helps and feel free to ask me anything else. last thing - the heart rate monitor is a godsend and seems pretty accurate (tried it with another to compare and they were very similar). After every full week you do a very quick exercise before your work out to get your heart rate up. You then 'walk' it off and the program measures your recovery time. This is really really good because you compare it to other previous weeks and if I'm anything to go by my recovery time has markedly been reduced. You also have all manner of online stats logged if you really want to chart your progress.

The final thing from me - has it worked? Well, I'm yet to see any major weight loss, but if you're really wanting to lose weight you really do have to eat less, and work out more than this, and I'm not quite there yet. Do I feel better? You have no idea. I started with weak, stiff and occasionally painful legs. Now, I'm used to my legs and joints being sore, but this time it's muscular and it's from a good workout. My legs are improving daily and I know I'm doing something good for myself. If you're not used to doing any workouts PLEASE stick it out through the first week as you may be surprised at how knackered you'll get - worth it though!

Oh, PS - your resistance band will last for about 2 weeks and will then probably snap - but you can get an asda one for about £6 or go for a tougher and harder one from argos by nike at £20

Good review there, I agree totally. Did a very cardio heavy session on it today, lots of trail runs and then squats to really kill the legs too. After thirty minutes I was soaked with sweat and felt probably more knackered than I do after a thirty minute jog. Never going to be as effective as the gym but as it's sitting in your front room you are more likely to stick to a routine. My nearest gym in at least a 20 minute drive away too.

Picked up the last 360 cversion in Prescot at 9pm Sunday. They still had 1 PS3 and 1 Wii version in stock. They were priced at £29.99 but scanned through at £9.99, so I traded some games in and got this and a pre-owned copy of True Grit leaving me with a £2 credit in store too. Thanks OP

Cheers stewby. I think the thing to remember is that this isn't a magic cure - by doing the workouts alone you will make a difference, but most people think that this means immediate weight loss. To put it into context, if you do a heavy workout for 30 minutes you'll burn off about 250 calories, which is only 10-15% of your average calorie intake for the day. ie. on it's own, it will not make you lose a heap of weight!

I think the reason why this, and probably other similar programs work is that it gives you reasonable goals and to be absolutely frank, puts your mind off what you're doing and gives you something to concentrate on. Every exercise is short and makes you focus on the screen (or with sound prompts if you can't see the screen because of the nature of the exercise).

It does several things really well - it makes you feel much better about yourself, it improves your stamina and muscle tone and I would suspect that long term it helps increase your metabolism, though can't vouch for that one quite yet! And, in turn that has a good knock on effect of making you think about what and how much you eat, which WILL make you lose weight and if you do it right, in a controlled and long term way.

Probably misunderstanding you, but are you saying the PS3 and Wii versions are now scanning through at £10 too, despite being priced at £30? or were you talking only about the 360 versions?

Got this when it was £19.99 at Morrisons, have to admit the 360 version was so clunky I gave up on it. Will have another go, hopefully they have updated it since? You were in the middle of something and it just kept switching back to the menus all the time. Common fault it appears.

So he only scanned the Wii and that might have been £10 too? Did he scan the PS3 one at all, that's the one i'm interested seeing as that's supposed to be the best version of this

(Not being a fanboy btw, as far as i understand it the Wii version requires you to put the wiimote in the straps, Xbox requires kinect and is buggy, PS3 does NOT require move and comes with everything you need in the box)

Thanks for your reply btw, just trying to clarify the situation
