EA is certainly one company that knows how to milk a franchise. Sometimes the annual releases is a good thing when it allows it to respond to fan feedback rapidly and improve the game quickly. Sometimes there's nothing much to improve or the improvements take more than a year to realise but the publisher still goes ahead and release a minor improvement anyway. Skate 2 has come along about a year and a half after the original so hopefully this marks something more significant than graphical tweaks."
