|Overview:||Skate 3 builds upon the series' strong community with many new social features. These required much new user interface. Building frontend can be slow and expensive. Skate 3 took a new approach by integrating WebKit, the open-source browser engine at the heart of Apple's Safari and Google Chrome, into the game and building frontend with the same technologies used to build websites. Producing frontend for a console game like this is very different from producing a website, but building it in this way provides many strong benefits, from ease of development and testing to faster iteration times and updating content at any time.|
