Tony Hawk Project 8 Screens slide in...

Two more screens showing Mr Hawk's next-gen skateathon in sublime action

Feel the grind as two new Tony Hawk's Project 8 screens kickflip their way into our Monday afternoon...

While the venerable and indeed revered skating series has appeared on just about every format imaginable (we've even got the Zodiac version somewhere), there's major cause for next-gen optimism with Project 8, which promises some excellent gameplay tweaks, including a new momentum system allowing your skaters to build up a head of steam as they fly down assorted ramps, slopes and half-pipes.

Obviously, the series is also upping the stakes in the visuals department, as these two new screens attest, with cracking looks that should perfectly complement the skating action, including, it appears, the ability to leap clean over innocent bystanders.

Tony Hawk's Project 8 heads for 360, PS3, PS2, Xbox and PSP as the leaves start to turn brown, though for the funky next-gen versions that probably means November.
