Skate is the closest thing to skateboarding without actually putting your feet on a skateboard. With innovative skating controls that take advantage of the dual analog sticks, the power of the next gen hardware, and the ability to sculpt skating tricks that define your own style, Skate delivers an authentic boarding mecca like no other videogame.
Individual skater style combined with physics-driven skating animations promise that no two tricks in Skate will ever be the same. And in Skate there’s plenty of room to pull off those tricks - San Vanelona challenges Skate players to explore, find, and own the best spots. Skaters can even capture footage to create and show off skate successes with friends across the world - because without footage, it's skating fiction.
Get ready for all the fun, creativity and culture of skateboarding without the hours of practice, broken bones, and hospital visits!
