US game retail kingpin Gamestop has priced Activision’s upcoming title Tony Hawk Ride at $119.99 (£75). The game has also been set a release date of October 13 for the three home console versions in North America.
Activision has yet to officially announce a release date and full price for the upcoming title, which comes bundled with a Wii-Balance-Board-like skateboard peripheral. If the Gamestop listing is accurate, UK consumers should expect the title to be released before November at around £80.
The $120 ask is in line with Activision’s other current big-box releases. Guitar Hero World Tour, bundled with a solo guitar, sells at $99; the same price as the game bundled with a drum kit.
The UK edition of that very product currently has an RRP of £74.99, though the recent severe depreciation of the Pound may alter any plans for Tony Hawk's expected RRP.
MCV understands that Microsoft and Activision are currently working out a console exclusivity deal for Tony Hawk Ride in Europe. Following a premature PR release about the deal, the parties involved are now implying that the game will eventually be released for Wii, PS3 and 360.
