Electronic Arts was more than happy to satisfy the retailers with another production run of Skate 3 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The way we hear the story, there are simply few used copies out there and since it was out of print you could not order any more. Retailers in the UK know that the game has been in the top 40 all year according to Chart-Track. The sales of Skate 3 have risen 32.9 percent during the first half of 2014.
