Skate 3: Pre-order bonuses now get their own trailers...

 Pre-order bonuses used to be a special thing; something that was a rarity and only a couple of big name games used to boost the pre-release sales.  Now days, the "pre-order bonus" has pretty much become standard with any game hyped prior to its release.  Take EA's Skate 3 for example.  The series, which is the current king of the skateboarding genre, it set to release the third game in its lineup this coming May will shift the focus to teaming up with other gamers / skaters and owning the city of Port Caverton as a crew.  If you manage to run to your local (participating) retailer and throw down the money for Skate 3 now, EA is willing to give you access to a special skatepark to hone your skills in known as "Black Box Distribution and Skate Park".  This warehouse turned skatepark looks to offer gamers any and every surface they could desire to practice on, from riding the rails or nailing the 900's off of the ramp(s).  Does anyone else imagine this being available as DLC after launch as well?  That though aside, this content has its very own trailer...
