Tony Hawk’s Ride noseslides its way to £15 – and sells out

Maybe Activision should be rethinking the planned sequel?

Poor Tony Hawk’s Ride.  Currently propping up the bottom end of Metacritic with a score of 44/100, it seems there is little love for a franchise that was once adored by its fans.

One of the main sticking points is the frankly colossal price of £99.99.  We know it can be found cheaper, but you still wouldn’t get much change from £100.

It seems some people agree.  Online retailer Marshall Ward dramatically slashed the price of the game by 85% – and sold out as a result.

Even the guy paid to play it looks in pain.

Oddly, only the PS3 version of the game was cut, as the Xbox 360 and Wii versions can still be found in the toys section for £99.  Do PS3 owners dislike skating?  Or are we a bit more prudent with our hard earned cash?

Is £15 a price you would take a gamble on?  Or would that money be better spent towards God of War III?

We know – silly question.  Gnarly, dude (or is that surfing?)
