i acknowledge the controller as an amazing piece of technology, but its a simple fact that you will never get as much accurate control from a motion-based peripheral as you will from buttons or analog sticks. the cutbacks they have had to make to the games presentation and setup already make it seem like a mistake on the part of activision.
Agreed!! It's also very disappointing that none of the people interviewed/commenting seemed to be people who actually actively skate or are that into skating. I would never buy this game, just because of the peripheral control. I'll stick with handheld titles that are probably better anyways.. (like SKATE 2)..
