EA may be well known for their sports titles such as the FIFA and Madden franchises, but did you know they also dabble in a bit of high-tech fitness kit every once in a while? Last year the gaming giants launched their Active range to encourage users to shed the pounds, and now they’re looking to update the range with Active 2.0

Unveiled at this week’s GDC, Active 2.0 will offer “true fitness results by featuring an innovative wireless control system powered by new leg and arm straps with motion sensors, a heart rate monitor to capture intensity and a new online hub to track and share workout data.”

There’s not much more known about the new kit at this time, other than that it will be headed to iPhones and iPods as well as Xbox 360s, PS3s and Wiis some time this year. But with new motion controlling hardware headed to the two HD consoles, could there possible be some Arc and Natal features added along the way?
