Good job this is coming out BEFORE Fallout 3, should help the sales some.

With the amount of games I have that I haven't even opened yet I'll probably wait a while on this one....

...yeah right! Who can resist colorfully candy filled animals.

I just got Viva Pinata and Forza two for a tenner the pair, and I have to say after playing the first one, the second one will be on my wishlist. Quite simply one of the most fun games. Fantastic for a change of pace after playing Ninja Gaiden 2!!

The first Viva Pinata was my first full 1000GP. I was utterly addicted to it.

Who'd thought a game made up of imaginary, cartoon creatures would fascinate me so much!

This will be a must buy. The first game was an amazing game, glad to see we're getting a real sequel instead of a party game.

I will reserve it for sure. Party animals was ok. It looks like Trouple in Paradise is getting back to gardening with new features.

Bought the first one for my kids and I couldn't put it down. This is a must have when you need a break for sniping someone in the head.

My wife loved the first one and I didn't mind watching her play it. Her b-day is 9/10 so I guess I know what one of her presents will be!

Im happy to see all the above comments are positive for Viva Pinata. Too many people quickly brushed off the game thinking it was for kids. Most of the games bashers tend to have never tried it. One of the best games for the 360. I for one am definitely going to buy this the first day it is out

It's true, once you start playing this game, you can't stop. You keep telling yourself, "Just a little bit longer"... 3 hours later, you're still playing... :) This one will no doubt be the same way.

I am personally very excited for this game. I'm not so sure about this statement though; "the hugely successful original" The sales were actually underwhelming and thats why the second iteration seemingly wasn't going to happen. Maybe "hugely under appreciated" would fit better.

Bill Gates comments before release were detrimental to Viva Pinata as he claimed "This is a game for little girls". Nice one Bill. Perhaps this time, now that word of mouth has spread, the game will sell as well as it deserves.

Cannot wait for this, the last one was so addictive it was a joke. Also amused my missus no end when she would see me sitting there transfixed, no explosions, no blood and guts, no revving engines, no expletives, just ickle fwuffy cweatures roaming around a pwetty garden

Viva Pinata FTW

That's awfully close to Spore and Force Unleashed... But I am extremely excited for this game, the first one is extremely addicting.
