Joystiq recently got a significant amount of hands-on time with the upcoming Electronic Arts title Skate. As we have mentioned myriad times before, the question on everyone's mind is whether or not Skate is better than Tony Hawk. According to Joystiq, the answer is an emphatic "Yes." Skate ditches the complex button combinations of Tony Hawk in favor of a slick, streamlined setup that relies on the analog sticks. The left stick controls your body and the right controls your feet.
