EA has announced that their PS3/Xbox 360 skateboard series Skate (http://www.joystiq.com/2007/10/30/skate-will-have-no-downloadable-content/) (or skate. if you want it to look all pretentious) is branching out onto popular systems (the Wii and DS). Skate It, developed by Skate's Black Box along with Exient, translates the motions of jumping and doing your basic skateboard stuff to stylus gestures drawn over a picture of a skateboard. Producer Scott Blackwood said of the new control scheme " ... it's a totally new way of controlling your skater yet somehow very familiar... it feels right."

Will a new control scheme be adequate competition against Activision's mysterious new DS skateboard game technology (http://www.dsfanboy.com/2008/05/09/activision-announces-guitar-hero-ds-lite-bundle-new-tony-hawk/)? It's an interesting time for DS skateboarding games. Check out the link for a few (nice-looking!) screens of Skate It in action on the DS.
