Self-identification through product choice is a mainstay of the skateboarding scene, from t-shirts to shoes to skate decks to the soundtracks on skate videos. It's all part of the culture, so it's only fitting that a skateboarding game – say, Skate 3
– shares in that. To celebrate this common thread, let's play spot the product placement after the break!
EA and Black Box logos. It's a video game trailer for Skate 3
called "Good Times," and it's their video game, so we'll give them a break on that.
: In-game banner. Can't tell what it's for, possibly a fictional property.
Song playing identified as "Good Times" by The Greenhornes
, licensed by V2 Records, a division of Universal Music Group.
In-game t-shirt with logo for Monster Energy Drinks
Hollywood-style sign for "Sharks," presumably a fictional property. Banner in the background, and another unidentifiable t-shirt logo.
Dr. Pepper billboard in the background, and then a jump over a shipping company truck, presumably fictional.
In-game t-shirt bearing logo for Supra
Another t-shirt logo, unidentifiable.
Quick montage of four or five logos, including a plug for record company Death Wish
and possibly branded skateboard graphics.
Two in-game billboards on wall in the background.
Finally, a plug for the actual product, which will be sold in stores for an MSRP of $59.99 starting May 11.
