Co-Op Release Alert - Shaun White Snowboarding

I went to school with a fellow named Austin Rushing.  That'd be a perfect name for a football player, wouldn't it?  Almost as good as a snowboarder named Shaun White.  Speaking of Shaun, his games have just been released.   The 360 and PS3 versions are basically the same game, but the Wii version is a totally different experience, and supports the Wii Balance Board.  Buy using the links below to support Co-Optimus.com!  You'll be dreaming of a (Shaun) White Christmas, for sure!
