If you're looking forward to Neversoft's next-gen take on Tony Hawk - currently going by the name Project 8 - then you might want to check out a recent addition to Eurogamer TV.

It's a video of skateboarder Steve Williams going through the process of motion-capturing the moves that form the basis of the game's oh-so-realistic animations - followed by a quick glimpse of the finished product.

The full game is due out on PS3, Xbox 360, PS2, Xbox and PSP, and Neversoft is aiming for more goals, side missions, mini-games and secret areas than in any other Tony Hawk title - the latter reached by adding your own skate elements like ramps and rails, a bit like in Amped 3. You'll also have to build up "respect" in the local citizenry.

THP8 is due out this autumn. By which time we'll have found a way to use "Tony Hawk's Project 8 My Hamster" - don't you worry.
