$119.99. That, apparently, is how much you can expect to pay for Tony Hawk: Ride
, complete with skateboard peripheral, if you live in the United States.
That converts to £76 (€86) at the time of press. Don't be too surprised, however, if the package costs more when it's actually released over here, given that the prices of games products tend to leap above the exchange rate for us Brits.
That price comes from US retailer GameStop
and is listed against the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii versions of Ride
. That means it's not the official RRP, but we do expect a retailer the size of GameStop to have some idea what it's talking about. The listing also has a release date of October 13th.
It looks like you won't have the option to play Ride without the peripheral
, so don't get any ideas about using your standard controller instead.
While that sounds a bit costly, shipping games with peripherals hasn't hurt Activision's Guitar Hero
franchise. Let's just hope that it actually works...
There were a few shenanigans last week around exactly which platforms Ride
will actually be released on in the UK last week. More here
