Bah - it's bound to be a Tony Hawks rip-off, right? Wrong. EA gave CVG a sneaky peak at the game it hopes will topple Tony's reign on top and it could well do.
CVG went to EA's Skate presentation expecting a slightly adapted interpretation of Activision's skating series, but was instead shown a skater that blows Tony way off the half pipe in terms of realism.
Skate is a hardcore simulator - totally physics-based and paying an impressive amount of attention to the feeling of real life skating.
