Tony Hawk to ride with GameCube

Activision confirm THPS3 as a launch title

Source - press release

GameCube fans in the States can look forward to going home with more than they bargained for on launch day. The omnipotent Tony Hawk will be riding in style as his third game; Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 from Activision, launches with the GameCube on November 18. THPS3 joins a cast of 15 or so other titles launching on that date, including several exclusive titles. We can only assume the game will also launch on PS2 and Xbox that day. If not, it'd be quite a coup for Nintendo. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 was recently confirmed as the PlayStation 2's first online-enabled game, and will boast compatibility with PlayStation 2 USB modems and Ethernet adapters, the absence of which from the market apparently doesn't bother Activision too much... The GameCube version will not feature online play. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 on the PlayStation 2 is due out in Europe on the 23rd of this month. It won't be with us on the GameCube and Xbox until their respective European launch dates sometime in the Spring of 2002. Related Feature - US GameCube launch titles
