    Considering the price tag on Natal (seriously, for $150 buy a fucking WII), I don't see this doing too well, especially when Wii already HAS a Sonic Riders title.

    On my butt in front of the computer. Where else?
    I'm working on working up the willpower to work on learning how to make my own Sonic fangames. Not quite there yet.
    I'm going to wait for more information before I comment. I'm not especially interested, but the thought doesn't exactly repel me, either.

    I've enjoyed the Riders series, it has a steep curve but it's plenty unique, with cool gimmicks and the racetracks always look awesome. It's serviceable.

    I'd be interested in seeing a current gen entry. <span style='color:#000000;background:#000000'>With a soundtrack by Hideki Naganuma</span>

    If if it like the sonic riders games I would have thought the wii motion board would work a lot better, natal may pick up body movement and poses but when it comes to riding a board I think foot control is important, doubt natal can do it well enough. If it takes angle and movement from body positions then lol, fail.

    Not only that, but historically, peripherals don't do that well, especially major ones. The Wii can get away with motion controls because it does it by default, but if people are forced to buy a 150USD camera in order to play motion controlled games, they may not be as interested.

    Eh, the Riders games were okay at best. I can only see Natal screwing things up to make them worse.

    Never really played any of the sonic riders titles, but this sounds like an exciting addition to the series

    I actually quite liked the Rider's series once I got the controls down. However, as much as I'd like to play it, I'm not getting Natal just for it, and at the moment I can't see myself getting Natal for another year or so, if at all.

    Loved the first Riders (gameplay-wise, the models were horrendous), but I hated Zero Gravity as it was incredibly wonky in movement, controls and overall concept. If the game plays anything like Zero Gravity I won't buy it.

    ... is this a joke?

    Sonic Riders sucks, the first part sucked, Zero Gravity sucked even more. Is it possible to get any worse?

    Explain why you thought these games sucked, please. I found them very enjoyable for the reasons I stated <a href="http://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?showtopic=14580" target="_blank">here</a>.

    See, you'd have thought people would have learnt after Eyetoy, but apparently Microsoft R&D never got one...
     
  15. Seriously? Sonic Riders wasn't that bad. Sure no one likes Jet, but at least it was fun. Only complaints I had about it was the fact that the character models looked retarded. Zero Gravity was horrible. The effects were overused and I nearly got motion sickness from playing it. Plus the entire 'zero gravity' bit was retarded. Also black hole! Not to mention the levels were meh.

    Looks like the game is legit. I'll assume that the PS3 gets this too so that all the main consoles have at least two Sonic games out this year.

    Exactly this.

    Sonic Riders was fun. ...The sequel, not so much. And Natal *cough* Kinect *cough* is gonna be totally lame. I was already disappointed with the Wii myself; it could be good but developers are too busy dicking around with the controls to actually make a decent game, besides a very select few games. Natal *cough* Kinect *cough* is gonna be the same way.

    Hell.
    If this comes out I'll have to buy a Natal to play it - because I'm a sucker.
    And since I'll be playing Natal, I'll be a sucker who looks <strike>gay</strike> gayER.

    EDIT:
    Furthermore, I wonder quite how much shovelware Sonic Team needs to make before people accept that there isn't going to BE a 20th anniversary 3D HD extravaganza of a game, and this stuff is all we're getting?
     
  20. Yep it's real. They showed a grid of the 15 Kinect launch titles just now at the E3 stream, and "Sonic Free Riders" was indeed there.
