Isn't Activision already going out of buisness already? Apparently they want to put the nail in their own coffin themselves. 4 million viewers each week with I bet less then 500,000 of whom actually play video games, probably less then a 100,000 of would actually buy a game. I mean what are you going to do for a game like this anyway? Yeah you'll build stuff but that can only go so far in terms of gameplay and excitement. Oh well their loss I suppose.

Yeah. I want to see how this turns out. Maybe a racing feature? You build your own bike, race eachother. Race online, go to showrooms. People rate your bike and stuff. That'd be great, just how they might do it though...But anyways...Future will tell.

Yeah but it will probably suck. I'm not trying to be mean or anything but considering most people think most of Activision's games suck in the first place, when you add in an idea that just probably shouldn't be made into a game, and you have all the ingredients for sucking. If I'm wrong then hey great for them, but if I'm right then sucks for them I suppose.
