Jason Lee and Skate 3

Techstination feature for Monday, March 15, 2010

Jason Lee and Skate 3. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Electronic Arts is readying the release of Skate 3 this spring and with the help of a well known actor ...the game will feature a skate school that will make it easier for anyone to play. Game producer Chris Parry...

"We have this character named Coach Frank, some people may know him as Jason Lee from television and what not, he's an ex-pro skateboarder, and he's down to be in the game and we're kinda proud of that. And then the other thing that we really have that I think will take our game to infinite gameplay ...he's talking a lot now... is we'll have a new create a park mode. And with that, it's limitless what you can do with create a park."

The magic in the title, says Parry, is the way it captures the skateboarding culture. It also allows you to create and share game play videos. Skate 3 arrives in May for the Xbox360 and PS3. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin.
