    What?

    I thought this game was going to be a huge belly flop. $120 for a gimmicky video game with a useless peripheral and bad reviews? Well, I guess consumers disagree.

    Wiis are still selling with not-so lively game line-ups--money spent on "novel" fun.

    The Ride-board makes the balance board look like a work of art!

    Old ladies probably purchased this. "Experience the thrill of skateboarding despite the fact that you're old!", the commercial in my head says.

    yeah, and the game comes along with a lack of presantation because the developers wanna have something they would be able to improve in a sequel [​IMG]

    Skateboarding is HUGE with kids right now. They see it say "ZOMG Tony Hawk Skateboard game you can ride!. BAM instant success. Just like Drumsets,Guitars,Turntables. It was gonna sell. Im sure it'll be used in a sequel hopefully a much better one
