Skate 3 rolled onto the scene just a few days ago. This iteration boasts a much higher degree of online integration than in the previous version. That’s all well and good, but there’s just one problem – the online isn’t working properly! For the first few days after the game released, EA was pretty mum on the subject.
But a recent tweet on the official Skate Twitter account hippyjump has given some gamers some relief:
“Hey guys – we are aware of the online problems. The team has been working tirelessly to try and fix the issues. Thanks for the patience!”
These issues, as cataloged on the EA forums, vary from EA Nation rarely or never logging on properly, to Create a Park crashing the Xbox 360 version of the game (No reports of the PS3 freezing here thus far), to some offline animation issues that are not present online. Hopefully these issues, especially the EA Nation problems, are dealt with before the weekend, when no doubt even more gamers will be logging on to skate the day away. We’ll update you as the situation progresses.
