Just seen the news on MCV, that skate 2 has been announced.

Electronic Arts has confirmed that the second iteration of popular skateboarding title SKATE is in development for PS3 and Xbox 360.

However, the publisher hasn't released any information regarding release date or price for SKATE 2.

The news came as EA announced that it will release the next SKATE game, SKATE It, on Nintendo formats – and that gamers can play it on the Wii Balance Board.

Awesome news! Skate was one of my favourite games on the 360 recently, and definately the best skateboarding game ever made.

All I'd want for Skate 2 is a new location, a few more tricks and the ability to get of your board.

Sounds like it would be fun on the Wii too, although my little bro used to have a skateboard balance board thing for the original Xbox and it seemed like great fun until you actually tried to use it.

Coolness! I was speculating about the possibility of a sequel just this morning.

I'm dragging myself though the dire Proving Ground at the moment. I've played every Tony Hawk game since THPS2 and they've gone downhill (no pun intended) in the last few.

Skate was a breath of fresh air, such a fun game. I lost hours to it. I just wish it wasn't an EA title. They need to fix skate.reel too.

That is great news! As said before, my only gripe was not being able to get off your board, apart from that it was one of my favourite 360 games :)

Should be great. If they can build on the first rather than re-inventing it, they'll have a winner on their hands.
If only they could fix the broken EA login on the website.
