EA puts Skate 3 back in print

Written by David Stellmack

Recent popularity have revived the game

In something we really have not seen before (at least that we can recall), retailers have requested more copies four year old game that has risen to popularity due exposure on YouTube. Electronic Arts was more than happy to satisfy the retailers with another production run of Skate 3 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The way we hear the story, there are simply few used copies out there and since it was out of print you could not order any more. Retailers in the UK know that the game has been in the top 40 all year according to Chart-Track. The sales of Skate 3 have risen 32.9 percent during the first half of 2014.

For the time being, those that want Skate 3, should be able to get a copy and there are plenty of good videos showing you how to play it and what you can do with it.
