Another decent workout game unusable due to bad motion controls

Summary: With the PS3 Move controller being on the market for over 2 years, why is it still so difficult for someone make a workout program that offers accurate motion detection? Sports Champions does it. Even Move Fitness did a competent job. Like Get Fit with Mel B, I found Adidas miCoach has a lot of promise in terms of a workout program, offering a very deep variety of exercises and programs.
Summary: This thing wants Adidas to know everything about you and your person. Opt out? Then you don't get all the bonus features and the game is drastically handicapped.... Get the EA Sports game, it's way better IMHO. Or, wait for something better.
Summary: This game makes working out frustrating. It doesn't read you at all. You will end up doing extra reps, which is troublesome because sometimes you do reps on one arm, which it won't properly read, then you do the other arm and it will properly read you. End result, you do more reps on one side. There are also workouts where you have to hold the move controller and weights at the same time. This is obviously a port from kinect, which is poorly implemented.
Probably a perfect game if you have all the required equipment

Summary: UPDATE: Motion detection is really horrible with normal indoors lights. During daytime with blinds open, I did not have any issue but trying to do workout at night is nearly impossible. Right now, I cannot recommend this game at all unless you have a perfect setup at home. Very bright room. At least, 10 feet between you and camera and 4 feet of free space behind you. Space was not an issue for me. I got this game over weekend. Let me point out the negatives first: 1.
One of the most promising new fitness titles for the PS3, a bit marred by spotty motion controls and integration

Summary: I've been waiting with great anticipation for the release of miCoach by Adidas. The last really excellent workout game that was developed for any system was EA Sports Active 2, but it seems that EA has all but abandoned that franchise. The Wii U will be getting Wii U Fit in the fall, and the Xbox will be getting Nike+ Kinect, which means Adidas MiCoach is really the only serious player in the fitness game market for the PS3 in the foreseeable future.
