Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 Won’t be a Budget Digital Release; Big Price Difference Across Platforms

A few days ago Activision revealed to the world that the next official installment in the long-running franchise would be taking the Hawkster back to his roots with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5.

We saw some early screenshots of the game in-action and weren’t too impressed with the lack of detail, in fact, nobody was really blown away by the graphical qualities being shown.

It’s been confirmed that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 will be a cross-gen release, but unlike the last title to be pushed out on the PS3 and Xbox 360 (Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD), Pro Skater 5 will not be a budget downloadable but will instead be a full retail release at full price, at least according to a recent listing by online retailer Amazon.

Amazon currently list the upcoming arcade skater as being $59.99 on PS4 and Xbox One with the PS3 and Xbox 360 editions being listed as $39.99.

Amazon has since removed the listing, but we managed to grab a screenshot of the listing, check it out down below.

To be honest, I can’t see this one setting the shelves on fire. $59.99 for a franchise that has long been considered past its peak is a bit optimistic to say the least. Unless Activision can show off something spectacular in the run-up to release, this may be yet another embarrassment for the Hawk man.

      It does indeed look like a bit of a cheap game, hopefully Activision can prove us all wrong with a demo or a some gameplay footage

    It is time they dropped last gen, I mean last gen was great, but it’s been around 18 months since current gen consoles released, it’s about time we see what the consoles are truly capable of when they’re not being held back.
