The Skate franchise is back and rolling into some sick new territory with the release of SKATE 3 for the PS3.
There's tons of new stuff for Skate fans to get stoked on - a whole new city to skate, innovative new team and co-op gameplay, new difficulty modes that enable you to skate exactly how you want, and for the first time in Skate, a Create A Park feature that will change the way the game is played.
If you're new to the world of Skate, don't sweat it because we've added Skate.School, a fun place to session where you can learn the ins and outs of skating as taught by Coach Frank - this weirdly hilarious and oxymoronic "skateboarding coach" played by legendary pro skater and actor, Jason Lee.
Your mission in SKATE 3 is to start a skateboard company and sell boards. Sell enough boards and you'll unlock four huge skateparks and plazas that are also "create a parks" with all sorts of varied and super fun terrain to play with.
The dev team is especially proud of Skate 3's commitment to blurring the lines between...

241w ago - Black Box has confirmed that the PS3 will be the lead format for Skate 2, due to criticisms levelled at its predecessor.
Speaking to GAMER.tm recently, Black Box producer Jason DeLong confirmed that the PS3 version of Skate 2 would be the lead version of the game, after the PS3 version of Skate 1 was criticised for not being as good as its 360 counterpart.
"The PS3 has been our lead platform," DeLong confirmed. According to DeLong, this was due to "the PS3 version Skate not being as good as the 360 version," adding that it "was something we learned very quickly that we had to remedy on the second one."
Despite this, DeLong reckons gamers will be hard pushed to tell the difference. On the topic of whether there'll be any noticeable differences between the two versions, DeLong said "not so much."
"We're definitely been developing [both versions] in parity. The goal is that if you put both versions side-by-side, you will not be able to tell the difference."
So in a nutshell then, followers of both consoles will benefit. Skate 2 is due out sometime next year.
