New orientation for the Shaun White license, as "The Flying Tomato" (it's the champion's nickname) will no more slide on snow but on asphalt, his second passion. Shaun White Skateboarding is planned for an Autumn 2010 release on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii and PC. Update: Images added
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.

difference was barely noticeable. Checked some sites, they recommend at least 1.98m, so i do that, difference was instantly noticeable, lol. The question is, do you want to sit 2m away from a 65''? :P (18 minutes ago)
I have to come back to that about 4K, me and my stupid ass didn't take into account the viewing distance. Stupid me was watching both 1080p and 4K Netflix at like 3.5m away from the 65 inch TV. (20 minutes ago)
ooo Pyre on discount and it comes out next month! I didn't even realize it was coming so soon (9 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: I imagine the bitrate for most 4K streaming is going to be significantly less than the bitrate on most 1080p blu-rays. (13 Hours ago)
These shows already are crisp as can be on the B6, not demo video crisp. Was kinda expecting that from Netflix 4K. Guess i really need to see a 4K BR disc. (15 Hours ago)
I deciced to upgrade my Netflix to 4K, was curious. Gotta be honest, watched episodes of Better call Saul, House of Cards and so on, i have a very hard time seeing a difference at all. Disappointing. (15 Hours ago)
