Xbox 360 and PS3 owners in the UK saved.
It’s probably easy to forget given their delay, and given that the game itself is such a wreck, but Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 was due to launch on the PS3 and Xbox 360 eventually too- if it had stuck to its original timeline, it should have been out by now, although the last gen versions were delayed to first get some fixes for the PS4 and Xbox One versions out of the door.
Now, it seems like in the UK, at least, there will be no way to join in on the latest Tony Hawk game if you own a PS3 or an Xbox 360- Activision, confirming the last gen versions’ launch later this week, have also confirmed to Eurogamer that “[the last gen versions of the game are] not releasing in the UK on [the Xbox 360 and PS3] platforms at this time.”
I suppose the last gen market in the UK isn’t big enough to warrant the costs that launching those versions would entail. I suppose it’s a shame if you still own only a PS3 and/or Xbox 360, and were holding out for a game with as universally bad reception as this one, but I mean, take this as a sign that you should upgrade your console. Or buy a game that doesn’t suck. Or both.
