I like that they are trying something different, but I have zero faith in Activision to pull this off. Seems like they are milking a long dead and rotted cow. Not buying it, if only to sent the message out there that we don't need more plastic littering our living rooms

I remember playing games that use the skateboard/snowboard in arcades back in the day, and they were just a pain in the ass. I don't see this being any different.
