Skate is available at Shopto.net on preorder for £36.99!

Not a huge saving I know but I have looked around other retailers and £39.99 seems the best price + P&P.

IGN gave this game a 9. I have been reading Gamespots review and they gave the game a 7.5 which is way off what it should be. I read players reviews and they rated it much higher.

The game is more of a simulation than Tony Hawks games so a welcome change for me!

If you can find a cheaper deal let me know!

I think patience is the key with this one: EA have a tendancy to over-manufacture the hell out of their games, resulting in drastic price-slashing after a few months. I'll be like getting Shawshank or Donnie Darko on DVD soon enough. I expect to pick it up for under £20 by January. While I'm quite interested in the game, I'm in no rush.

Well it's back up to £39.99 on Game. A lot of people love this game and prefer it to Tony Hawk's because apparently it's much deeper and realistic.

sure, £39.99. When you add the £5 + free postage off, £34.99, and quidco gets you £3.50 so £31.50 altogther

The new Tony Hawks demo on the PS3 is pretty rubbish, ill be trying this when it comes out for sure.

Tony Hawks is fun for about an hour every so often but this looks my kind of game. It also makes you look at Tony Hawks and say is Tony Hawks really that much fun?

I don't think it is anymore.

Well I didn't count Quid Co on my price. I don't really believe in adding something you will get in 2 months time but I know what you are saying with the price.

Hopefully we will see a price drop in the next week or so.

Too right. I think more people are realising that Activision really haven't tried all that much since THPS3 (remember the million point ship challenge- thinking a million points wasnt going to be at all possible in a two minute run lol). Having said that Project 8 was a lot better than I thought it was going to be, but thats entirely down to the decent bash at using some of the PS3 power. Anyway OT now, am really hoping this might be as good as THPS2, given the reviews.

£34.99 + Quidco + Reward points if you use the £5 code at Game

Yeah I just don't think the game is that much fun for longer than an hour. It's too easy to grind things and also the rag doll physics can be ridiculous. I also find it strange that you are in a world but 'locked in a small area'. I get the concept but we should be skating round a real life city by now. Wouldn't that be more fun?

It's almost like they are scared to give us a real city unlike Skate. I am not sure if the city in Skate is real or not but it looks real. I don't even skate but I just like that idea of a game you can chill out with and have fun. No stress or tasks just you, a skateboard, and a real city. I love that concept personally.

No I think Tony Hawk needs to step his game up rather than trying to please all his skating buddies.

I will have another play on Skate later and if I still like it I think I will buy it. EA are really starting to publish some great games now!

Mines being processed today at ShopTo.

I think the PS3 version is delayed and not the Xbox360 version. Can't wait to get the game, it just get's better and better the more you play, apparently they have some huge jumps/drops in the full game too!

If they are processing the order today then any idea when I will receive the game? Before release date maybe? Tomorrow??? :w00t:

This is the best game ever, the full game is sooo much more than the demo, as you would guess... this is going to kill my whole weekend and the rest of the weekend, going to have one pissed off girlfriend...

Yeah I pretty much expected them to save the big jumps for the full game. Looks like they have some crazy jumps.. sorry Tony but you don't exist anymore mate!

Can't wait to get this. Have you got the full game yet Bob?

yes, got it today, had a blast lunchtime and will be giving it my full attention when i get home in 40 minutes

Sounds awesome. It's a shame work gets in the way though! :giggle:

Luckily I work for myself but it's sods law that I have designs to setup for print tomorrow! Oh well.. always tomorrow night! With a bit of luck my Turtle Bay 360 headphones will be here tomorrow too! :-D

yeah i did the one in the trailer,. it's an Boulala pro task... you have to hit a small ledge then trick down that massive drop and score over so many points..

The ledge is tiny though, took me 10-15 trys
