The long awaited Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD remake is already available to buy on Xbox 360, but for PS3 users, you’re still going to have to wait a long time to pick up the game according to some new release information from developers Robomodo.
We can imagine that a lot of you are not too happy about the fact that the game has been subject to another of Microsoft’s timed exclusivity agreements, but it isn’t as bad as it seems in actual fact perhaps.
Early feedback from the Xbox 360 version suggests that there are some bugs and glitches present in the game and Robomodo are looking to polish the game up before releasing the game out on PS3. However, we’re now hearing that the game is not due for release on Sony’s console ”until the end of August or early September”, so is this really just due to polishing up or is it basically when the exclusivity period runs out?
Over on the official Facebook page, it seems like an almighty debate is brewing up over the length of the delay and the fact that most of the users cannot see past Activision’s initial decision to bring the game out on Xbox 360 first, despite the original Tony Hawk series releasing on the PlayStation 1 back in the day.
The debate even forced Activision’s Social Media Manager Dan Amrich to jump in and have his say on how the PS3 gets their fair share of timed exclusive content as well. You can read through the comments here to see his statement in full – it’s quite interesting to say the least.
Firstly, what are your thoughts on the decision to release the game at the end of August or early September on PS3? Are you hoping that the extra month is spent putting split screen into the game at least?
