Some of you sound ridiculous!
Do some of you work for free?
Who the F*** works for free?

They created a model that kids can bring their toys to life & some of you are hatin your a**es off!

I would never buy SkyLanders for myself!
However, my daughter & other kids love this s***. Gaming isn't all about YOU, others of all ages play as well. I'm a veteran gamer playing since 1976, and DieHard gamer to this day.

Some of you need to realise, there's another demographic other than us Hardcore. Consoles cant survive with just Hardcore gamers buying games; You friggin idiots.

That's not the issue I had with the quote; it was that the devs were claiming they were all about innovation, despite the fact that once they had a successful formula they started milking it. Their focus wasn't ever on innovating, it was on finding a successful new formula and then making as much money with it as possible.
That's fine, but it doesn't mean their focus is "creative innovation."

I didn't know "Creative Innovation" was another term for "Making Money".

Skylanders is a blast, My son enjoys it & I enjoy it with him. Yeah it's expensive, but it's clean fun, he gets to collect things and it's great.

I love this series and everything about it, I love it even more because my son loves it as well.
