Tony Hawk Ride Gets Ship Date


By Shane McGlaun

I’ve played my share of skateboard games over the years, the most recent of which was Skate It on the Wii. The game was supposed to allow control of the skateboard via the Wii Fit balance board, but that was nearly impossible to do. I hope the new Tony Hawk Ride game has a better controller.

We have mentioned Ride before, the game will ship with a motion sensing skateboard controller that looks like a skateboard minus the wheels and trucks. The first time we will get a glimpse of the game in action is at E3 next month.

GameStop has announced that the game will ship on October 13. You can pre-order now if you want, but be prepared. The game isn’t cheap with the PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360 version selling for $119.99 each. I didn’t pay much more than that for my Xbox and my Wii. That controller better be worth the money.
