Price Drop - Shaun White Skateboarding

Coffee Beans
Shaun White Skateboarding was released on October 24, 2010.  The game was released on the PlayStation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360.  The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Shaun White Skateboarding had a MSRP of $59.99, and the Wii version of Shaun White Skateboarding had a MSRP of $49.99.

Well, after watching the game's price for the last week, it appears Shaun White Skateboarding has officially seen a price drop from one retailer, just 73 days after it released.

The new list price for Shaun White Skateboarding is now $29.99, on the PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360.  You can see the prices on Amazon.com linked below:


It seems that the Shaun White games, both snowboarding and now skateboarding, have issues at retail, and drop in price relatively quickly to when they release.

I was actually surprised to see Ubisoft develop Shaun White Skateboarding for the PS3 and Xbox 360, considering the original Shaun White Snowboarding game didn't sell very well on those consoles, resulting in a Wii only sequel.

I haven't heard any sales numbers for Shaun White Skateboarding, but I would guess with a price drop happening already, they're hoping this can help boost/maintain sales.

I'm actually interested in the Wii version of Shaun White Skateboarding, just because of the Wii Balance Board controls, which I really enjoyed in Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip.

Have any of you played Shaun White Skateboarding?  If so, which version did you play and did you enjoy it?  If you did play it, would you suggest the game to others now with its lower price?
