Tony Hawk Ride gets you on the list

Despite it being the lowest rated Tony Hawk game yet, the skater himself stands by Tony Hawk Ride, is “very proud” and remains optimistic about possible follow-ups. But until that happens, he’s added some value to the product that’s available to consumers now.

Buying the $120 game now comes with a little added bonus — a spot on the famous skateboarder’s Xbox Live friends list. As he was playing Ride on Xbox Live (Gamertag: tonyinegypt, by the way) less than a day ago, the skater tweeted that those who buy and play the latest game bearing his name online ‘are in.’

Any takers?
