    Seriously, I think that the balance board could come in really good for other games such as racers and even FPS games if you tilt on the balance board to look round corners... anyone else got any ideas/agree ?

    Sking, skating, racing (accelleator and brakes), boxing (shifting weight and dodging)...the list goes on.

    skating/snowboarding/skiing are the obvious ones.i like the idea of using it for FPS but it would have to be done right.

    Meh, I expect it to be over-used, just like motion controls. It shouldn't be implemented where its not needed (FPS, WTF?).
    lawl'd at the eleven

    For FPS a game like time crisis, on rails but you take over and pop out when needed, the balance board could be implemented that way.

    Well that Tony Hawk interview was a vague one, just a we may have to think up a whole new control scheme and such.

    Not exactly hinting, but I see why'd people would like it.

    Like I said in my previous post, he just said that he is aware of the balence board.

    It wasnt saying he liked it or hinted at using it.

    Well it says
    I think that says enough right there....even though he doesnt mention that he will do it, but showing inerest is a step in the right direction.

    He wasnt showing direct interest, he just said I have seen a little bit, it would be possible but it would take a dramatic change.

    Tony Hawk series isnt the most innovative of franchises is it, do you expect them to take time to make a special innovative step forward for one console?

    if he wants his franchise to continue to do well...i mean i know he has his following and all but, think about how well he would do if he made this change.

    Skateboarding/Snowboarding is the best idea that I can think of at this moment, but I am sure that developers will try and use it for all sorts of new ideas.

    True but that is looking at it from yours (among others) perspectives.

    It would be nice tho:)

    hmm...

    A friend of mine suggested fighting titles, things like the ability to detect a kick while the Wii remote/nun-chuck of course manages punching.

    yeah but, games involving jumping on the board, would be unlikly, as i said in one of my threads the board has a 300Kg weght limit,

    and jumping, when you land your weight increses momentarily for a second or so, there for the weight limint would probably lowered by about 100KG
