Tony Hawk: Ride Rolls into Retail

It’s time to get off the couch and into the game with Activision’s Tony Hawk: RIDE, the ground-breaking new entry in the popular action sports franchise, which has shipped for PS3, Wii and Xbox 360. Featuring a revolutionary skateboard controller, players of varied skill levels can physically control the action by stepping on board to perform movements and gestures that directly translate into amazing tricks in the game; from grinds, grabs and ollies to Tony Hawk’s signature tricks.

“Tony Hawk: RIDE is the new way to play. It gives a whole new meaning to game night by allowing the entire family to challenge one another to competitions that are as fun to watch as they are to play,” said Rob Kostich, head of marketing, licensed products, Activision. “It’s the perfect activity for the entire family this holiday season…and anytime of the year.”
