Play-as-you-run controller now works with over 100 existing Wii games.


Liverpool, 07 August 2009: New Concept Gaming today announced that the list of games compatible with its multi-award winning accessory jOG™ has now passed the 100 mark, with more being added every week. Furthermore, multiple jOGs can be used so the whole family can join in the fun, with such an extensive list of games to play in so many different genres that there’s no chance of anyone getting bored!

jOG is a unique motion sensing accessory compatible with the Nintendo Wii™ that allows character movement in the game only when the player jogs on the spot, creating a feedback loop immersing players deeper into the game play while taking light exercise. Simple to set up, jOG works with any games that use the Nunchuk™ joystick for character movement on screen, ensuring its compatibility with a much wider variety of games than other fitness related peripherals which require titles to be programmed specifically to make use of their functionality.

“The decision we made early in development to use ‘overlay’ technology has paid dividends as we see the compatibility list grow day by day,” explained Brendan Ludden, Managing Director of New Concept Gaming. “No other accessory in this field works with anywhere close to this number of games. While boredom is never far off with other fitness related peripherals, there will always be new, fresh games coming through that will work perfectly with jOG, and with multiplayer fully supported too, the whole family can join in the fun!”

The full list of compatible games can be viewed here:

jOG compatible with Nintendo Wii™ is available in stores now, including Argos, Toys R Us and HMV with an RRP of £24.99. For more information, please visit
