Skate 2 Soundtrack Is All Eclectic

I firmly believe that the most important aspect of a skateboarding title is its soundtrack. There was a point in time where my MP3 collection consisted solely of music from Activision's Tony Hawk series, and now EA has revealed the soundtrack for both Skate 2 and Skate It, consisting mainly of songs I already own.… » 10/23/08 11:20am 10/23/08 11:20am

New Cold Beats Skate It Trailer


There's plenty of rail grinding, skateboarding trick action in this new Skate It trailer. Yeah, it won't have the graphics of Skate or Skate 2, but the control scheme still kind of intrigues me. If nothing else, Skate It seems like it's surely worth a try. Look for it on store shelves November 17th for Wii and DS. » 10/06/08 3:00pm 10/06/08 3:00pm

The…

Balance Board Skateboard Add-on, Bwah?

As posted earlier, Kotaku's own Mike "Michael" McWhertor was impressed with Skate It's straight forward incorporation of the Wii Balance Board. But for some, maybe just the regular Wii Balance Board isn't enough to get them in the mood for skating. Maybe they want something to sexy the board up. You know, like some… » 7/08/08 8:00am 7/08/08 8:00am

How's Wii Skate It? We Skate It To Find Out

We hope you're ready for a world in which all games are controlled with your feet, because following the success of Wii Fit and the welcoming of the game's Balance Board peripheral by third-party developers, it's only going to ramp up from here.

Skate It Wii May Get Skateboard Frame for Balance Board

I was blown away with how fun it was to mess around with the early build of Skate It with the Wii Balance Board that Electronic Arts had on display last week during their event. The controls were fun, easy to pick up and felt much more rewarding when you pulled off a trick than doing the same with two thumbsticks or a… » 6/24/08 10:00am 6/24/08 10:00am

Yup, Skate It Is Coming To Wii, Nintendo DS

It won't come as any surprise that EA is planning Wii and Nintendo DS "spin off" versions of its skateboarding franchise skate—IGN spilled the beans accidentally in April—but you might be surprised at how good it looks. It might not be on par visually with the Xbox 360 and PS3 entries, but Skate It, at least based on… » 5/09/08 9:40pm 5/09/08 9:40pm
