Tony Hawk: Ride 360 Exclusive In The UK *UPDATED*

leave a comment »

Hot off the heels of the revelation of the new plastic motion board-using Tony Hawks title comes the news that in the UK, the title will be an exclusive to the Xbox 360. No other details have been given such as whether or not the exclusive is a timed one, but common sense suggests that in these harsh times the game *will* come out on all formats in the UK at some point.

It’s all about the bottom line after all right?

Given the fact that the title is earmarked as a potential Christmas blockbuster, it is certainly a smart move by the platform holder to try and pull away some of that casual audience from Nintendo’s Wii, whilst at the same time depriving Sony of a big release.

Tony Hawk: Ride, is due to be shown in early June at E3 on 360, PS3 and Wii platforms.

*UPDATE*

It turns out the there is in fact no exclusivity agreements in place at all for the 360 version of Tony Hawk: Ride.

The following comes from Activision.

“Further to the erroneous information which was distributed this morning regarding Tony Hawk: RIDE, we would like to clarify that the game is due to be released on the following platforms: Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and Wii home video game system.

“We apologise for the confusion caused by this morning’s mail out and we would be grateful if you could update your coverage to reflect the correct details above,” the publisher said in a statement.

Seems like someone got a little bit excited 🙂
