judging by the video at gametrailers.com, the game seems like a mix between monster rancher/pokemon/animal crossing. with the right marketing, i think the game could really pick up and sell good, the previous mentioned games.

In all honesty, M$ needs a title like this.
And who better than Rare to develope it for them?

I must admit, Viva Pinata sounds very catchy tongue.gif

Been reading a lot about this on Kotaku. Surpised it hasnt been mentioned on the front page. Seems interesting, can never go wrong with Rare too. I like that its very stylized, doesnt have that usual bland cg look.

I ldon't think that every game needs to look photorealistc. Could be a fun and less stressful game. I'll give it a try.

Very nice visuals. Not sure if I'm going to throw down $60 for this...but maybe as a relaxed title that I can pick up for $40 or so (Top Spin 2 esque) it might be worth it.

I just finished watching the clip here. If I rented this game, I don't think I'd get very far because I'd be beating the crap out of all the piñatas. They seem like they'd warrant a good beating because all of them annoy me. However, it'd be cool if MS has some sort of promo where they include a free piñata (full of candy, of course) for the first 1,000 VP games sold.

A lot of parents are going to go through the 360-craze this fall when the show airs. This game, as ridiculous as it seems, will be another system seller for MS.
