Press release :

SAN FRANCISCO – May 25, 2010 – Today Ubisoft® announced new details for Shaun White Skateboarding, the latest offering in the award-winning action-sports franchise developed with world-renowned skateboarder and snowboarder, Shaun White. Scheduled for a fall 2010 release on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Wii™ system from Nintendo and Windows PC, Shaun White Skateboarding brings skateboarding to a wide audience, allowing players to transform a dull, lifeless city into their own extraordinary skating playground. Wii-specific details will be revealed at the E3 Expo in June, 2010.

When we started making the game, we knew we wanted to give players a sense of how skaters see the world – everything is an opportunity,” said Nick Harper, Creative Director. “What looks like a handrail to us is really a grind. A park bench is a place to trick, an alley is a quarter pipe, etc. We’ve taken that idea and expanded it. We wanted to put our own twist on the genre and craft the type of game that allows players to be creative and still have a lot of fun.”

Players begin their journey in a dull and gray city that’s stretched over massive districts. As players skate and complete challenges, the city comes to life – new areas are revealed, better skate lines are created and buildings are transformed. Players can stretch and twist handrails to dizzying heights, empty fountains to create bowls, morph streets into ramps and much more. Creativity is rewarded with points, skateboarding gear and fresh, new skating opportunities. With 80+ skate tricks hand-picked by Shaun (including a Shaun creation called the “Armadillo”), players can pull off authentic skate moves from the get-go and jump online to challenge friends in co-operative or adversarial modes.

To be honest, Those screenshots do not impress me at all. It looks to much like the old tony hawks games or any tony hawk games. I was expecting it to be more realistic like skate!

Ill probably be the only one posting something positive about it...

Actually, i have no proof of what i'm going to say, but i really wish this is a more arcade like skating game.

They've really favored realism in the last few years, both TH and Skate, the latter i'd even call it the closest there is a to a skating sim.

It'd be nice to go back to the crazy roots of sakating like in the TH of old. I hope this game does that, actually it should, because it wouldn't have anything else going on for it. Graphicwise, it's a pain to look at.
