Tony Hawk's Project 8 Demo To Debut On Xbox Live Marketplace October 20
Press release supplied by Games Press 16:30 19/10/2006

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Santa Monica, CA – October 19, 2006 – The competition to become a member of Tony Hawk’s elite skate team starts on your Xbox 360™ with the free Tony Hawk’s Project 8 demo available on Xbox Live® Marketplace Oct. 20.

Gamers can download the demo and hit the Concrete Park where they will experience some of the latest innovations in the #1 best selling action sports franchise from Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), including “Nail the Trick,” which gives players precision control over how their skater moves their feet to flip the skateboard; “Filmer” goals that require players to follow a cameraman and complete tricks that he calls out; and “Spot Challenges” which are ambient goals that players can access throughout the game world and complete as they choose.

Tony Hawk’s Project 8 is being developed by Neversoft Entertainment for the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment systems from Microsoft. The game is rated 12+ BBFC and is scheduled for release in November.
