skate.Reel Servers Are Back Online [UPDATED]

skate.Reel Servers Are Back Online [UPDATED]

Grab those achievements!

Written by DavieMarshall on 11 July 11 at 10:59 | Credit to N0rvy

You've likely gathered all you need to know from this article's headline and didn't even bother to come this far, and I can't say I blame you.

The online servers dedicated to hosting skate.Reel are online, working and available right now! We've tested this amongst ourselves and confirmed it to be true. Further evidence is available from the official skate.reel video upload section of the website.

Edit: Even though footage and photos can now be uploaded to skate.Reel, the footage can not be viewed through the website. However, players can still link to each other through the game itself, and rate footage through the game. Unfortunately, ratings do not appear to be saving, but we're not sure whether this is a connection issue or a server issue. All that we can recommend is that you try it for yourself.

Fire up that Xbox, pronto! There's no word on how short or long lived this might be.

Now if only they would do this with all their games. Their the only publisher I know that drops servers like they do, they need to just pass the server hosting off to Microsoft if they don't wanna handle it, but don't close it.

I got the two upload achievements just now. Then I wanted to vote on some peoples content but my xbox crashed while loading a picture on skatereel...

Now skate. won't start :| WTF! It just hangs on the skate splash screen after choosing my account.

edit1:Okay I removed my cache files from my hdd and that didn't work.

edit2:The game freezes up when it tries to sign in to the EA serversfacepalm (when you cancel to login with B the game does run, but ofcourse without internet connection)

or maybe the skate celebrity is still unobtainable...

Skate online is the most messed up online video/picture sharing stuff. It took me a freaking week to get the easiest achievements in Skate 3 by uploading and rating stuff cause their damn servers are too shitty and messed up.

Good luck getting those achievements but I won't bother a freaking Skate game anymore.

I can confirm while write this post that I have just uploaded 6 pictures and a video to the servers and obtained two achievements.

When I go to download my photo to Rate it, my xbox locks up and freezes.

When I go to the website to try and find my photo to share with other people, It is no where to be found.

I think the newshound team should monitor some of the other EA titles with closed servers over the next week. We might be in for a surpirse...

Sean Reinhardl said:awsome news but wish they would make skate 4Me too. A few months after the last Skate 3 DLC came out, they stopped updating the site and seemingly abandoned the series. This has given me hope that maybe they're still around.

And all can get a lot of shit done.

Might be sonething we should mailspam EA with in the suggestionbox.
