Just got skate for PS3. This game is so much fun. If you have a PS3 or 360 you have to get this game. It really is the Gran Turismo of skateboarding games. There's an online video-posting site too and I posted my first video just now. The trick took me about 50 tries to land. The recording I made is the one and only time I managed to clear the fence. Thought I'd quit while I was ahead.
