    Are you happy that you are the FIRST!!! to post a comment? I hope you are... Well done you... Would you like a cookie... Have a pat on the back... Pat... Pat... Pat...

    Anyway, that thing looks a bit wonky... If they decide to announce a new SXX alongside it though I'm game :D

    you are right... it is not a wii fit balance board rip off.. it is a PS2 skate...thing rip off. Again Nintendo took an idea and made it for the masses. If you look at how this controler works, you actually have to know how to skate... and probably have a skateoard. So, why buy it then? For winter?

    I do not know how to skateboard and would never buy this as i see myself falling often until mastered it. The Wii fit, well, does not require that much skill so more people will be able to use it. Again, the point of the wii.

    What's the betting on how long it takes for someone to file suit against them after they break their ass falling off the thing? $5 to get into the pot, and whoever is closest without going over takes all. My money's on the 20th of August.

    The wii fit board has so many more purposes than this thing, they probably should of simply cloned that!

    Put it this way (it isn't a rip off) but if it was, how the hell are they gonna make a board with a controller unique, i mean, its a long piece of material with a controller and internal electronics. What you expect, a hover board? Having said that, I'll stick to my super duper water cooler PC, have a nice day.

    Exactly, but all nintendo fanboys like to think everything nintendo makes is new and a first and that everyone else is copying them. :)

    Blatant rip-off! Nintendo invented it first!

    Seriously though, can't deny the timing is...interesting.

    Well to be honest it is rather unique in the fact that its a skateboard/surfboard/snowboard lookalike but it does do exactly the same thing as the wii board, looking at the wii board though http://www.icoste.com/575_Console-Accessories/Njoy-G-Board-Balance-Board.htm its pretty simple looking and doesnt make you feel like an actual board, just looks like bathroom scales. However the qmotion skateboard is far more attractive and realistic. Id go for the qmotion any day of the week and would feel a lot more special on that than the bathroom scales!
