Wii workout add-on available to sample this weekend at UK Toys R Us stores.


Liverpool, 1 May 2009: New Concept Gaming today announced that the public can try out jOG® at the demo stations within the ten largest Toys R Us stores around the UK this Bank Holiday weekend, 2nd – 4th May. 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.

“This is an ideal opportunity for the public to try out jOG for themselves before buying one,” explained Brendan Ludden, Managing Director of New Concept Gaming. “Thanks to distributor re:creation and retailer Toys R Us, visitors to the top ten stores this weekend will be able to see just how jOG enhances the Wii gaming experience – it’s fun, it’s healthy, and great value for money!”

Recently voted the number one product at Toy Fair 2009 by The Gadget Show, jOG works with any games that use the Nunchuk stick for character movement on screen, typically most adventure, shooter, RPG, kids and sports titles. It requires no special versions of game software to operate: players just plug in and go. What’s more, gamers can connect as many jOGs as the game supports players – enabling the whole family to join in the fun.

Consumers can visit the following Toys R Us outlets to try out jOG this Bank Holiday weekend:

• Brent Cross

• Medway

• Croydon

• Southampton

• Cardiff

• Oldbury

• Warrington

• Metro Centre

• Edinburgh

• Leeds

jOG compatible with Nintendo Wii™ is available in store now, with an RRP of £24.99. For more information about jOG, please visit
