Tony Hawk: Ride multi-plat in UK, admits Acti after botched announcement

Wednesday, 20th May 2009 15:32 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Activision UK has just issued a baffling climb-down from an announcement this morning that Tony Hawk: Ride was to be an Xbox 360 console exclusive in the UK.

We just received this from UK promo outfit Frank PR:

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.

Consider it updated. Activision announced earlier it was “pleased to announce that this title will be launched later this year in the UK, as an Xbox 360 platform exclusive.”

Glad that’s cleared up.

    Nice job PR peeps. Still, better this way.

    Is it possible that it’s still a timed exclusive though?
    Not that I care, just still seems a little unclear/ambiguous.

    Bang up job Activision, you’ve obviously got both hands on the tiller.

    I wonder if they were drunk before?

    Am I the only one thinking that’s an incredibly unlikely mistake to make? What’s the likelyhood the other platform holders got this turned around in a few hours? Anything above zero?

    They must have got mixed up with some other Activision game that is about to go 360 exclusive.

    Hilarious. Doing a region exclusive game involving the PS3 is useless anyhow.

    Oh forgot it was supposed to be an E3 announcement, even though E3 is for America.

    The US arm of MS isn’t immune to this absurdity, either. Have a look:

    It is when the size and bulk of the plastic skateboard makes importing so expensive.
