anyone that buys this crap is just stupid
i mean no offense but in buying this all your telling the world is hey yeah go ahead and overcharge us for a chunk of plastic we don't mind paying
then again allot of people already do it with guitar hero

qface645532d ago

i agree with you its bad enough as it is with guitar hero
but this is doing too much considering that you don't even know if this board will be used to support future tittles

if TH wants to get its mojo back vs Skate they should through the peripheral in for low cost ... this'll tie those purchasers into all your future software sales including spinoffs like surfboarding that was mentioned by TH. Pricing this high may not sway people away from SKATE imo.

as i thought the price would be $99 but its around there. i might buy it but im still undecided due to economy.

NJShadow5532d ago

That price is really pushin' it. I'm not gonna buy it regardless, because as much of an ambitious idea as it is, I believe Activision is moving in the wrong direction with this. It's possible to revive the Tony Hawk franchise, but not this way.

Looking back at gaming history often throws up some questionable things - including awful games, bad consoles, and terrible peripherals.

That intel wireless gamepad was the inspiration for the 360 wireless racing wheel (and that works really well). I'd say one the author forgot would be the activator from sega.

Why Activision should go back to Tony Hawk’s arcade roots with the new game

We know there’s a new Tony Hawk’s in the works, but it should feel like the oldest of entries to the series.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi3800d ago

There's a new Tony Hawk game coming?

Cautiously optimistic. I want the series to end on a positive note but the last what like 6 entries have been severely disappointing. Hope this one ends the curse.

thorstein3800d ago

I hope they don't blow it. I really liked the earlier games in the series. Then Skate came out and the difference night and day.

UncleGermrod3800d ago

Ha, I was thinking the same thing when I read this. I had no idea there was one in the works...you usually here about these things.

Any ways, I haven't truly enjoyed a THPS title since the underground games back during the ps2/xbox/GC era. I hope if they make one, they try to use that same formula that made the first 6 games so fun.

OmegaShen3800d ago

They just need to make Tony Hawk Underground 3, anything else will be a waste.

DarkLord10033800d ago

I think the series went downhill when they had all the jackass characters in the game..

SoulSercher6203800d ago

Either make it like the THUG games or GTFO.

csreynolds3800d ago

I support this article. THPS2 - best Tony Hawk EVAH. The franchise needs to drop the gimmicks and get back to what matters - addictive, thrilling skateboarding.

Ars: How Activision wiped out on the Tony Hawk: Ride reviews

Ars writes: "Tony Hawk: Ride had major challenges at retail; the high price, the large box, and the drastic change from past games in the series meant the game had an uphill fight to win the affections of skating game fans. Josh Tsui, the president of Robomodo, talked about some of these issues with GameSmith and brought up yet another challenge: the game reviews. Were they rushed? It's very possible, but sadly, that's a situation that Activision itself went out of its way to create."
