Skate £4.93 @ The Hut [Xbox 360 Game]

The Hut seem to be shedding some weight, much to the delight of online deal-finders, and among the gems at our disposal is the original Skate, which you can pick up for a measly £4.93!

I don't think you can find a cheaper deal going at the moment, and with a particularly barren summer ahead of us, reliving the thrills of Skate's first adventure might be just the nostalgic way to spend the remaining months.

Skate was one of a number of attempts by EA to stake a claim in lucrative markets, this one being the popular skateboard genre. The Tony Hawk franchise was in a state of decline, so EA assembled a team of veteran designers, software wizards, and probably a few monkeys to churn out basic code, and produced this: Skate. Built on a realistic physics engine, where you had to manage your weight on the board and properly consider jumps and grinds. It also featured the brand-new skating mechanic, Flickit, which employed the analogue sticks to perform a variety of skating tricks, instead of relying on a series of button prompts more suited to a fighting game than a realistic skating sim.
