    Isn't this just a Wii Fit in skateboard format? If a kid tries a kickflip on it, I think they'll break the peripheral.

    This is rubbish. The whole idea of me playing the tony hawks games is that i cant ACTUALLY ride a real skateboard. I want to be able to pull of indy flips and front side 540 faceplants with the use of my fingers, not by jumping all over my living room like some kind of demented chimpanzee.

    Worst. Peripheral. Ever.

    Haha! QFT!

    I had a few skater friends at school... some of the tricks they could do were really impressive. When one finally coaxed me onto a board, all that happened was I nearly broke my arm and my skull.

    I like skating games... but the reality is a bit more painful.

    i was gonna laugh at this but i suddenly remembered when the first time Guitar Hero is out i had the same first impression...

    "ha! i want to be able to rock on a real 6 strings and pull off l33t skillz on a Fender, not pushing 4 stupid buttons on a plastic guitar..."

    apparently i'm the minority.

    Controlling your grinding balance might be fun, but some powerful force feedback would be needed on the board.

    I just hope this rendition of the console skateboard controller isn't going to be as useless as the previous ones on the old Playstations!
