Haven't seen this posted yet. Am pretty stoked to own this game having sold my 360. What a great game and glad to see the DS version will be bigger and better somehow...more Pinatas and wifi options. Should be fun. Looking forward to it...anyone else?

Rocking!!! I love the game on the 360 and will definetly be adding this to my DS collection assuming it's just as good on the handheld.

good for me as that saves myself from getting a 360 to play the game

i guess that is further proof that microsoft doesn't plan on bringing out a hand held soon (after Age of empires for DS and Rare Diddy kong racing)

If it's the same as the 360 version then I'll skip. I can't imagine them copying the gameplay 1:1 over so I'm hoping there will be some interesting new features. I'd just love to see Rare come back with some wonderful adventure game like they were known for :eek:

unfortunately I think it was the achievements that kept me going in Viva Pinata. Without the achievements I'm afraid I'll lose sight of any goals and the game will get boring. For instance I don't think I'll ever have a reason to romance a specific species exactly ten times, probably just a couple times.

I think this would be better if it was on the Wii. Ah well. Yeah, I don't want just a port of the 360 version either.

Good point. Getting all 10 flutterscotch variants was certainly not its own reward. Surely they'll work some kind of reward system in there.

^ Again it's the excite truck for the 360. Either you get into it and love it, or simply just don't get it at all. A really divisive game.

Dam these kiddy games. :p

I've noticed it's generally the younger crowd that is more sensitive to weather or not a game is perceived as mature.

I've stated this too much, but most modern games, even the so-called mature ones, have dialogue/stories written for kids.
