I actually don't care that much - I think Skate3 is pretty much a perfect game.

Wouldn't mind if they just threw us a new DLC with some new terrain occasionally, but that's probably wishful thinking...

no they need more tricks, like no comply flips and proper backside no complies among other thngs.

i cant believe that it could be canceled though considering that skate is te only remaining skate game franchise and i would think a big market for ea.

I don;t think after skate 3, skate 4 was even planned. But don't think skate 4 is going to happen.  :-\

I don't really see a point of another one. They're going to go through development for maybe a handful or new tricks and new spots?

Tony Hawk series got scrapped.. dunno if folks might be getting the two confused. EA's cut a bit of fat with quite a few series over the past couple months though, so I also wouldn't be too surprised to see it get postponed a year at least. I'm still playing Skate 2 so it doesn't really bother me too much.

This is the truth.

Nobody who was involved in keeping the games legit is still working there, and what's left of the development team is now working on a new SSX tricky game.

Why would they scrap it, it seems like it would make a shitload of money.

If there was a skate 4 they need more realistic places like in skate 1 cause gigantic stupid long rails isnt fun to skate.
Fix the tre flips.

Skate 3 was a cunty THPS 3 gloss fest, but the prob is Black Box was ripped apart after Skate 3, so 4 just ain't happening. 

I would have loved a more Skate 1 vibe from 4, with nothing more than a better look, honed physics so they're less silly, less glitchy hardcore mode, more solid career story with photographer control and 'session' multiplayer where you can hang with your friends at a spot you set with a marker, watch each other skate as it rounds your turns.  Basic but awesome upgrades. 

So yeah, DLC would be fine for that, and seasonally upgraded boards, or be cool and let us put photos on our decks so we can upgrade our shit. 

But yeah, not happening.

i personally think skate 3 is fine the way it is, hardcore ledges and grinds can get annoying at times but i think it pretty much perfected the franchise and a 4th iteration wouldnt really add much more.  that, and once you beat all the DLC theres a message from the designers that they wont be doing another one any time soon.

So what you're saying is that they aren't going with the murder mystery theme that I heard rumors about?  I thought Reda was going to get brutally killed after he got mouthy with the wrong Puerto Rican.  Then it was your job to find him and battle him in a 24 hour game of SKATE to the death. 

Oh well, through away that easy money EA.

Speaking of new terrain... i'm probably the only fool who didn't know that you can get over the fences in the art gallery DLC and there's a bunch of the old rez there... just discovered that - duh.:)

If they just released a completely new map and kept everything the same gameplay wise, I'd be so happy.

It really just annoys me that it would be so easy for them to just release the whole San Vanelona from Skate 2 as DLC for the third game but they didn't do that. Port Carverton fucking sucks by comparison.

It's too bad. EA is kinda screwing the pooch.

Look at these sales numbers

http://gamrreview.vgchartz.com/sales/39125/skate-3/

http://gamrreview.vgchartz.com/sales/32294/tiger-woods-pga-tour-10/
Pretty damn close, and with the DLC's, Skate is probably more profitable.
Even NHL 2010 didn't hugely exceed Skate's sales numbers (http://gamrreview.vgchartz.com/sales/35055/nhl-10/)

Maybe they're just taking a year off. SSX's new game doesn't come out till 'next winter' so I'm not going to expect anything in 2011.

I read a while ago that they're not making a skate 4 because they think Music games are going to be the hot shit.

Skate 2 is the best skateboarding game ever made hands down.
