Skate's Reel Service Going Down March 1st
Written By
View author's profile

EA has announced yet another server closing of sorts. The original Skate's Reel service will close on March 1st. This will block the uploading, sharing or rating of videos. The regular online servers will still be active.

If you still need any of the Reel-related achievements in Skate, be sure to use the specified thread on the forums to ask for help, and rate as many other videos as you can. Even if you have no plans of playing the game, help out your fellow x360a members and rate some of the community's videos. They'll be very grateful, I'm sure!

#1 = ...After it being a pretty much dead console for four years. Seriously, anyone who is still bothered about this has had ample time to play the games. And if they still want Halo 2, then they can go to the PC and play it.

Also, EA...take down one server? Are you insane? EA takes down servers on a yearly basis, sometimes twice-yearly basis, and it's always their yearly games that get the kick. That's why I never buy the bloody things. I refuse to buy games that are not supported by their developers.

Which, coincidentally, is why I buy Valve's games on 360, Left 4 Dead 1, Left 4 Dead 2, and orange box - because they SUPPORT the damn things.

I own both Skate 1 and 2 but never played either yet.. I guess I should Help boost for Skate 1 Online while I still can, though If I dont get them I'm screwed. :/

I agree with #5
There seem to be alot of changes with things like servers getting shut down and new features out or coming out that really show no improvement of our enjoyment and serve the sole purpose of increasing Micro$oft or EA's revenue. I'll stick with paying my yearly subscription and play these games online that I truly want to play and stop worrying about servers getting shut down or achievements not being obtainable anymore because it now seems like they're more trouble than they're worth.

Some people I just don't understand. Eventually these things are going to happen. Should the support a game that very few people play indefinitely. That would be pointless and a waste of money, which hopefully could be used for better purposes.

Oh Blame it on Sega, I will. They shut down the chromehounds servers and now it's the newest trend. Everyone wants to get in on it. EA, M$. We should take a poll to figure out which company will be next. My guess SQUARE-ENIX.

I'm not sure what the issue is. I haven't been able to upload footage from Skate for months (I'm in the US). I think others have had this issue to. So maybe this announcement means that ALL servers for Skate footage, no matter the region, are going offline.

This just makes people want to buy Skate3....sarcasm. I agree with #13 its just the fact that EA doesnt really support their games. Its a Dick move on there part..but no one can do anything about it. Except CAPTAIN PLANET :/

I love how people will bitch about pretty much anything. This hate for EA is rather ridiculous, theyve been giving us decent game's since the days of the Mega Drive, remember Jungle Strike? that was EA, they rock, get over it.

Is this for Skate 1 or for Skate 1 and 2? They both use the same one but save on different parts of the site. I'm hoping it's just #1 because I don't play that anymore since Spot Battle is a joke. #2 I payed MSP for the Filmer Pack and it'd be bs if they through that down. So what's next, all Xbox 360 games from 2008 and below will be cut from XBL?

Really people are complaining about a game that has been out for awhile now with its second installment out and its third installment coming.

It is time to move on, they have to make room for newer stuff.

I know, I read that... M$ decision to shut down the xbox servers is made to look like it's something the 360 gamers requested by saying 'It's the only way the 360 can hold more than 100 friends.'

Hell, if that's the case, why don't they delete all the inactive gamertags so we don't have to include "leet, xx, random numbers), and so on in our tags.

The truth is there aren't that many people on xbox so it's not profitable for them. Would sound a lot better if they just said the truth instead of dragging us along like they always do.

my thoughts about this situation would be to add a patch that would change the achievements so people can still get all the score from a game even if they close certain servers down.

Just my 2 pennies...

The reason that Microsoft is shutting down xbox original servers and game servers is so they can upgrade the 360 game servers. They claimed that even having Halo 2 online was one of the major stops on them upgrading the friends list functions and whatnot.
Theres not much to it, they did it after about 5 years of the console being online, who cares... upgrade to the 360 or play offline till you can afford it. Simple.

@33. Then what is the reward for the people that got the achievements? People would just load up every old sports game and get a bunch of easy GS.

If you want a full 1000/1000 in a game, why not try playing it within like the first 2 years that its out? People whine about EA servers closing down for a game they found in a bargain bin at Gamestop. Like NBA 07, if you haven't got the achievements by now you don't deserve them anyways.

'and orange box - because they SUPPORT the damn things.' They don't dude, they said they'd give the 360 version the updates the PC version has 2 years ago, and still hasn't gotten round to (ie. they won't)
The game has at max ~500 players online at any time anyway so don't bother trying to play it, games are empty

And sorry I have to comment again because #36 is full of shit. Buying a game at any time means you have the right to its full contents as listed on the box, achievements included. I'm sure you'd be pissed if you bought a SNES Final Fantasy game and it didn't work because the computer chips have 'expired'
