Oh dear. Australian site Gameplayer‘s Skate 2 review reckons the PS3 version has severe frame-rate issues and “runs like a dog.”

From the piece:

There are some serious frame-rate concerns with the PS3 version of the game. We tested both the Xbox 360 and PS3 review code, even taking our rider in each version to the same spot in the world and switching the input on the TV back-and-forth to ensure it wasn’t some weird pre- and post-coffee phenomenon. But by comparison, the PS3 version runs like a dog. It is not a game breaker, but we did find ourselves missing landings and grinds simply on a part of the frame-rate screwing up our timing and no matter which way you look at it, that ain’t cool.

Skate 2 is released for Xbox 360 and PS3 on January 23.
