The Nintendo Wii may get you to work up a sweat, but it's still not enough of a workout, according to researchers.A new study in the United Kingdom tracked 11 kids as they played Wii sports, as well as a sedentary game. While they burned about 60 calories more an hour playing the Wii, researchers say it was still about 25 percent less than the energy used playing the sport for real.

The study is published in the British Medical Journal.
