    Thats the most damning thing Tony Hawk Ride has against it, it's a periphral, the fact that the game's bad only compounds the lack of interest towards it. Even a good/promising game like DJ Hero has that going against it, because I dont want another freaking plastic controller if it's only going to work for a few games, I got too many games on my list to care.

    Most peripherals that come out are gimmicks. let the newbs buy them first and go to their house and see if the thing is worth anything to you before buying. See newbs do have a purpose, to buy and test all the crap out there. hee hee hee

    Activision and Nintendo need to stop doing this, I don't want to buy any more peripherals I just want to buy games that actually make creative use of the controllers I have!

    well I think 60 bucks is way to high for a controller because you walk in the store with 60 and look at the controller and then look at the games witch makes it very diffcult to chosse the controller they relly should lower the price of controllers no controller should cost more than 40 dallors and with the Wii the system may be cheap but all the damn attachments it got cost and arm and a leg

    Wii = Wiimote ($35) Nunchuck ($20) Wii motionplus ($18)
    $73 New, Amazon

    PS3 = Dualshock 3 ($40 New, Amazon)

    Xbox 360 = 360 Controller ($38 New, Amazon)

    Wii is by far the biggest rip off, not sure where you're getting ripped of from but you need to learn to shop or use price grabber

    Yes I agree with dx3000 60 dollars is outragous for a freakin controller. I would rather buy a brand spankin new game then get a controller. I still have the one controller that came with the ps3 when I got it that first xmas. The L2 and R2 buttons are sticking along with both sticks. Which is understandable for being 4 years old. If they even dropped it to 39 dollars I would pick it up no question. Your dropping the ball like Romo on this one sony.
