As a reward for sending in your taxes (I hope?) why not download the Skate 3 demo? It's available on both Xbox Live Marketplace and PSN, and from the press release it sounds like it contains a solid chunk of content. There's also a promotional contest to enter, so Skate fans should check the release for that and cue up the demo download on their console of choice.
