    Yep, it's true.. the next Tony Hawk game for the DS is coming with motion controls.. the motion add-on will be also used on Hue Pixel painter, another game that will be bundled with TH.

    Screen looks nasty, but I've enjoyed the Tony Hawk Games on the DS so far, I'll download this one for sure!

    Hmm, wonder if you'll be able to use the existing 3rd party motion paks available.. (either from the start.. yeah right , or by some hacking)

    Not sure if I care, especially seeing that the developer has done the atrocious Aqua Teen Hunger Force Zombie Ninja Pro-Am & Biker Mice from Mars.

    The idea itself just smells of "we've ran out of ideas so we're using motion".

    Will have to be pretty special to make me want it instead of Skate It.

    motion control works...When the screen is not on the controller....Flip it to the right, Tony makes a move. Oh shit, I can't see what's happening, flip it back! Tony does some unintended freakshow of a move and crashes. The Tony Hawk games should've been dead 'n buried ages ago...

    Well, the screen moving with the motion can work but only in very limited circumstances, like for example a marble game. I can't really imagine how it will work in a skating game. In the end, the puzzle painting game might prove to be the better game on the cartridge combo...

    I wonder if this Motion Pak will be used in other games. As it's not a Nintendo but an Activision addon that doesn't sound too likely but who knows? Pretty awesome news in any case.

    So this rumor was actually true. I wonder what other games will be able to use this accessory.
