Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD sells 120k copies in first week

Robomodo's game off to a strong start on Xbox Live Arcade

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD sold approximately 120,000 copies on Xbox Live Arcade in its first week of availability.


Josh Tsui, president of developer Robomodo, told Gamasutra that day-over-day sales of the game are "staying very consistent" thanks to good word of mouth between Xbox 360 owners. "People are [also] more apt to try games that are smaller and downloadable," he suggested.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD costs 1200 MS Points (£10.28) on XBLA. It's due for release on PS3 in August and PC later this year.

"Great - a decade ago," we said in our 4.5/10 Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD review. "There are games you should remake, and games you shouldn't. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD falls into the latter category - limited, decrepit and frustrating."
