Announced at Nintendo’s lackluster E3 conference and remembered as that game that was somehow related to the internet’s most famous soccer mom breaking her wrist, Shaun White Snowboarding is a snowboarding game sponsored by pro boarder Shaun White. It utilizes the Wii Fit’s gyration/motion-sensing technology to make you feel like you’re actually jumping up and down on a $90 box thing jumping off of the Alps on a snowboard. Well, in the Wii version, that is.
Not being one to show the least visually-appealing version, today Ubisoft released the first trailer and screenshots for the Playstation 3/Xbox 360 versions of the game, which you can see in the gallery after the jump.
Since I haven’t yet been convinced to pluck down 90 bucks for Wii Fit, I’m glad that they’ve gone multiplatform with the game. I just hope that they don’t try to force a gyration/motion sensing peripheral on all the console owners that are interested in the game. It looks beautiful to say the least, and the inclusion of online snowboarding with friends is tempting. Chances are we’ll be seeing more of the game before it hits retail in Q4 of 2008.
