Skate 3 is the third installment in the Skate series of video games, developed by EA Black Box, published by Electronic Arts and was released on May 11, 2010. The game takes place in the fictional city of Port Carverton, which embraces skateboarding, unlike the "skateboarding is a crime" mentality portrayed in the second game. Although the location is a more colorful and friendlier place than Skate 2's desaturated, and grainy streets, the gameplay provides a similar feel to the first and second games.Port Carverton is made up of three districts, Downtown, the University, and Industrial. Each district has its own unique designs and monuments, Downtown is full of slick rigid ledges and rails, while the University is full of banks and open areas. Industrial is the most unique; it is home to a huge quarry that has over 10,000 hand-designed bricks of stone.Several notable skateboarding professionals appear throughout the game, such as Darren Navarette, Terry Kennedy, Eric Koston.
