Dance Dance Revolution Games Placed in West Virginia Schools
Posted on January 26, 2006
West Virginia will be adding Dance Dance Revolution games to public schools in an effort to fight obesity and diabetes. The game does get people moving their feet as they try to match movements on the mat to what they see on the screen.
Carl Callison with Mountain State Blue Cross tells NBC News, "If we can get children to change their behavior at a young age they hopefully will grow up to be healthy, active adults, which would have a positive effect on health care costs."
The game will go into 753 different schools in the state according to the article. Siliconera says the game's popularity is already fading in Japan. The game started in Japan several years before it hit the U.S.
