This game looks amazing. The screens are great, but the actual gameplay videos I've seen(crappy video from the TV show "Rob & Big") are even better. Finally someone is making a skateboarding game for skateboarders.

Anyone think it's going to be another sh*tty EA game? Or are they going to try this time?

Danny Way ftw. Better than zee the hawkster.

Ive seen a bit of it in OPSM2 and it looked great. But with these new bits of info, it looks amazing. Could be great, but you never know with EA.

The only vid I watched (online) was just Chris Cole talking about skating, and that enough made me want the game. Looks f*cking awesome. I can't wait.

After seeing the Rob & Big gameplay video I'm sold. It looks so much more realistic than Tony Hawk (except when he jumped the thing and OWNED came up).

Definitely keeping my eye on this, if the footage in this video are in game, then it could be pretty amazing.

I really hope that they do good on this. Tony Hawk could use some competition. If they battle out to one up eachother then they will finally start making skateboarding games they way I imagine they should be. LIKE ACTUAL SKATEBOARDING!

After NFS Carbon(or any current EA game) I have hardly any hope of this game being any good but hey if it turns out to be decent then it will be a surprise.

I don't think the footage of the game they show in Rob and Big is the actual game, cause if it is the camera seems f*cked.

Hopefully it'll still be better than Project 8.

Sure, the graphics look amazing, but will the gameplay be amazing?

It's claim is to be a "skate game by skaters for skaters". That's why I'm excited. If it was just another skateboarding game, I'd probably just shrug it off.

And considering the next gen systems, I wouldn't be surprised if the rob & big video either real or fake. But if it's fake, I'm sure it's possible to make the game look just as good. The big draw graphics wise in my mind is the animation.

Yea, I mean it could look as good as it wants, but if the gameplay dosent deliver, might as well just watch a video.
Im just curious how they will beable to use the right analog stick, and implement so many tricks into them. Because according to them, the button mashing of Tony Hawk is taking away from real skating.

I mean, how much about real skaing can you lean from holding a controler?

I'm really hoping for this game to be realistic. The last realistic skateboarding game I played was "Thrasher.

...But after remembering EA's history with skateboarding games, I remembered the Tony Hawk knock off for PS1 they put out. It actually wasn't that bad, it just was FAR from realistic.

Welcome to the hype machine.

It might look fluid and appear "realistic", but I bet it has 5 short levels and 4 tricks.

I actually really liked the camera in that short clip, gave it a skate video feel.

But yeah, I'll just keep an eye on it.

I will probably have those decent realistic features but I think it will fail to have the depth of tricks and abilities of thps games, I just hope EA dont piss about with it, Thrasher didnt have many tricks but I really loved that game. As long as It has decent skating and most fliptricks and such it should beat thps in my eyes.

The animation does indeed look slick and I guess the camera could be ok, may just need a little bit of getting used to but it could well be some stiff competition for Tony Hawk's. One feature I hope makes it into this game is a 'Skate Video Creator' I've been waiting for one of those since Pro Skater 2!

I can't remember where, but I read that they might have a 'Skate Video Creator'. After reading that, I was pretty much sold. Then it wasn't confirmed, but they then said that EA might make it so you can make videos, and show them off online and stuff. I just thought that would be awesome.

How about the number one top selling PC game last month?
Not to mention the number one selling PC game EVER
Wiki Link. Selling 16 million copies, more than twice as many as WoW.

SKATE looks really awesome. I love the camera. If any of you have seen skate videos; that's what it initially reminded me of.

The game is just being published by the EA we all love to hate. The game SKATE is being developed by "EA Black Box". The same division that made only one other game, NFS: Underground.

Hey, you get rid of your own crabs.

I think EA has plenty of collateral, from the past. Not just much from recent years. Just because they have a few bad years, and have become all about the money, doesn't mean they can't make a good game.

Actually EA Black Box also developed NFS Underground2, NFS Rivals, NFS Most Wanted, NFS Carbon, and 007 Everything or Nothing but still you only proved that this game has more chance of sucking hard. At least games like the Sims are only published by EA, developed by Maxis. Hey SKATE may not suck but given history it has a high probability of not being that great.
