I was really disappointed with the new Tony Hawk. I love all the games and thought this one kicked butt until I beat it. It didn't even take 2 days. I am glad that I just rented it. I know that it is aimed for on-line, but they should have made it longer! It was just plain retarded!!!!!
IGN reported that it works fine up to approximately 300 ft. The 30 ft. radius is probably just Nintendo trying to be safe. We went through the same thing when they released the WaveBird. The box says it works within a 30 ft.
