The last console surfing game ever to see the shelves was "Kelly Slater’s Pro Surfer". It was published in the old 16th September 2002.
Seven years after, there are still no waves from the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii or PC line-up. What happened? Aren’t there any buyers? Is everyone a “Shoot’Em Up” addicted diehard player?
There is an unexplored market for electronic surfing games and it is definitely easier to simulate water and waves with the 3rd generation console programming. Look at the skating franchises! There are thousands of Tony Hawk’s episodes and other independent titles.
With snowboarding, the story repeats. There are plenty of titles such as Shaun White’s and SSX franchises. Where are the surfing games for our Playstation, XBox, Wii and PC’s?
