    what a joke 1 IP and a Pay Per Month Service are not new there not innovations,

    Innovation is launching a new IP that takes gameplay in a different direction, not more of the same shit, with an extra service added on at an extra cost. lulz

    They changed the 2 to a 3 how is that not innovative.
    Secondly didn't a bunch of devs quit/get fired because they wanted to take COD a different direction or something like that.

    That's funny im a pretty avid gamer and I cant say that ive heard of it or anyone talk about it.

    It's a game for consoles, for kids, and is VERY popular. You're just not a parent or kid.:laugh:

    I'm a parent, and I've never heard of this game.

    MY oldest boy (5) only wants to plays Lego Star Wars saga all the time.

    Is anything Activision ever does really new? Just recycling what a 14 year old PS1 IP, expect these to come out on a yearly basis now if it truly is selling well, milk those children's parents for all their worth!

    I'm no parent and heard of it long time ago and have thought of Skylanders as being something that would be great for kids.

    how can they say skylanders is new when its a rip off of ubfunky but with people from a known game universe....

    actievil are the reason games are so bad on pc, the reason so many games are just rushed, last minute ports on pc and not real pc games anymore. you can blame them all for following suit but these guys started it.
