Activision Not Ready to Give Up on Tony Hawk

Activision CEO of publishing Eric Hirshberg still believes in the star power of Tony Hawk. "He is a lasting icon. He has that Michael Jordan-ish or Jordan-esque staying power," said the Activision exec. This vote of confidence came in an excerpt from a larger interview Industry Gamers plans to run in the near future.

Hirshberg attributed the recent struggles of the Tony Hawk games to technical problems in Tony Hawk: Ride resulting from its innovation with the board peripheral. And on the slow start for the recently released Shred, he said that the jury is still out, "because we are marketing it to kids, and it makes a great gift, and the gift-giving season has already begun."

Tony Hawk: Shred to Release on October 26

Tony Hawk's second peripheral-based outing will be coming on October 26 as Tony Hawk: SHRED grinds its way into stores on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii.

The game, developed by Robomodo, is the follow-up to Tony Hawk: RIDE, which featured a proprietary skateboard peripheral with a variety of sensors for a more immersive gameplay experience. Whether or not it actually worked is up to you, I suppose, but it definitely wasn't for me. Read more »
