Earlier this year, US TV airwaves were hit with a commercial for the Ninendo DSi starring R&B singer Beyonce Knowles (see below). The ad was the latest in a series showing female celebrities playing a DS, with both Nicole Kidman and Ugly Betty star America Ferrera appearing in prior DS Lite spots.

Apparently, though, Knowles' love of games extends beyond 30 seconds of highly paid shillery. Speaking to Billboard magazine, the former Destiny's Child member and wife of hip-hop mogul Jay-Z said she's contemplating her own workout game.

"I'd like to get involved in videogames since I really love Wii Fit," the singer was quoted as saying. "I think it would be a great idea to incorporate choreography because for me my workout is way more fun when it involves dancing as opposed to running on a boring treadmill. So I would love to do some kind of fitness game but incorporate dance and performance into it. I think a lot of women would enjoy that."

Were Knowles to collaborate on a Wii fitness game, she would not be the first celebrity to do so. Fitness guru Jillian Michaels has appeared in three games to date: Jillian Michaels' Fitness Ultimatum 2009, The Biggest Loser, and Jillian Michaels' Fitness Ultimatum 2010. In August, Daisy Fuentes Pilates featured the former MTV VJ, and next month ex-Playboy playmate Jenny McCarthy will be featured in Ubisoft's camera-based Your Shape.

@ alexLmx6, You are speaking strictly out of fan boy lungs, and so does everyone else that bashes Nintendo, Xbox, or PS3. You clearly don't realize that Nintendo is at the head of the charts when it comes to hardware and software sales/ and purchase count, so clearly what you're saying makes absolutely no sense. You probably desire games with the Alpha male that co*ks guns from beginning to end (very questionable if so). The truth is that there are both good and crappy games that are released on ALL systems, you speak from a one sided coin kid. Btw, this game will suck just like Brittany's dance beat for PS2, American Idol for DS, and any other rhythm OR fitness game that isn't DDR, Guitar Hero, Rockband or a Bowflex.

@ BloodMist - i think the wii gets the exact rap it deserves, while there is plenty of crap released for every system, the wii doesn't have anything worth playing to balance it out, and by simply riding on a fad and not making anything with lasting appeal nintendo has really screwed itself this time around on topic tho, if beyonce wants to make a fitness game she can go right ahead, but its not a game, its a piece of entertainment software

@fon1988 To be fair, over 90 percent of software released on every platform is crap.The Wii gets a bad rap for no good reason.

@Me2nice I say No to a Beyonce game because it's friggin Beyonce! The Wii is already littered with trash beyond belief and she is just adding to the pile. Nintendo messed up big time when they got rid of their "Seal of Quality". Over 90% of the Wii's game library would have never made the cut, and that would have been a great thing.

Considering that Beyonce is still legitimately famous, I'm not sure why she'd want to follow in the footsteps of Daisy Fuentes and Jenny McCarthy. That said, I'll never get why people complain about games like these. Video gaming is a big tent now... it's not just men aged 14-35 who only want Halo and Ninja Gaiden. There are actually other people on this planet with interests and tastes entirely different than our own, and while you may think a Beyonce dance-fitness game is lame, guess what they think of you pretending to be a space marine shooting aliens?

Dear lord while XBOX 360, PS3 and PC users are awaiting AAA games for this christmas and the next year. Other than Marios and Zelda this fitness game is a must have for most Wii owners out there because there is nothing else that great coming out. Honestly when I first heard of the Wii and its motion controls I thought that there will a huge wave of innovative games that uses this tech but unfornutaley most Wii titles is either a poor mans version of Wii Sports, a lame port of an original game or a fitness games like these. While these games sell a lot to the casual crowd real good titiles like Okami, etc have dismal sales. Man good thing I sold my Wii that too for $300 last year.

If they have a secret unlockable for nude Beyonce than I'm in. If not, they should atleast have her boobs bouncing while she's on screen and working out.

I'm luckier to have time for my other games, given that I have my dissertation to start and a whole of final year to resit.
