EA's Skate 2 will be arriving on the PlayStation Store next week. Strange, considering the demo is available on Xbox Live this week. Maybe EA is playing console favorites again?

The producers apparently felt the same way -- developer Black Box has stated Skate 2's lead platform will be the PS3 -- this is due to the inferior version of Skate PS3 owners received when the Xbox 360 was the lead platform. For Skate 2, producer Jas...
