EA has recently announced via the Skate.EA.Blog
that they will be removing two online features for Skate 3
Here is the post directly from the blog:
We are sad to announce that as of April 29, The Skate.Reel and Skate.Graphics features will be retired. The decisions to retire online features are never easy. Our web development team and operational staff have poured their hearts into this game almost as much as the customers using them, and it is hard to see them retired. But the number of players still enjoying Skate has dwindled to a point where it’s no longer feasible to continue the behind-the-scenes work involved with keeping these websites up and running. We hope you have gotten many hours of enjoyment out of Skate.Reel and Skate.Graphics and we appreciate your ongoing patronage.
What this means for the achievement hunting community is that three of the games achievements will become unobtainable. Here are the ones you need to nab before the features are closed:
The Artsy Fartsy achievement in Skate 3 worth 78 pointsUpload 5 Films and 5 Photos, and 3 skate.Parks The Sellout! achievement in Skate 3 worth 60 pointsCreate a Logo and put it on your Skater
It should also be noted that you will need the "Skate Share Pack" which was included in new copies of Skate 3
, to upload your footage to Skate.Reel; however, the codes in new copies of the game have expired. If you don't already have the "Skate Share Pack", you can download it from here for 800 MSP
Okay folks, you will have until April 29th to get the achievements listed above.
