The Tony Hawk Ride Skateboard Bundle Is Proving to Be a Huge Sales Flop

By bundling the next Tony Hawk game with a motion sensing peripheral that had to be used to even play the game Activision took a big chance. Judging from the game's current sales rank it looks like gamers are voting with their dollars and passing this one up no matter how well the skateboard might work.

I hope Activision burn to the ground cause they are douches but I doubt it cause sales of MW2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and Guitar hero 5, 6, 7 ,8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 will pick up the slack.

Edit: WTF happened to my post?

no one except activision thought it would sell anyway. they should have not bothered. you can't milk a franchise for that many games without any innovation and expect people to continue to buy once there is a superior competitor out.

i wish i stopped after TH3

they only have themselves to blame (and neversoft)

the skate series just nailed it, there is no substitute. no other game keeps me playing long after i have finished it. almost daily even now

Thanks to Xbox 360 the Tony Hawk franchise is now dead.

I never knew a Skateboard was compatible with a Toaster

Flopped hahahahaha great no more pay cheques Tony you old Fart and take your Flopped game with you.

Absolutely no surprise.

The thing was dead as soon as Microsoft 1-uped it with the Natal video.

Remember the kid scanning in his skateboard? once that was shown I can remember comments on websites like this one asking what's the point of the Tony Hawk Ride peripheral now?
