too much effort!!! .skate is a game I play when i want to chill out. just ride around doing my own thing, doing the odd challenge (career or multiplayer freeskate). the thought of standing the whole time i am playing is the deal breaker for me. the novelty will wear off in about a day and then it would sit next to that damn balance board.

wii .skate also didn't grab me. the flickit controls on the HD consoles is the best thing to happen to the genre, try all you like you won't better it.

i wonder what the next useless peripheral will be, a motion controlled basketball?
