@Magician Australian boxart from Amazon Australia is the first place I've seen it but also on the European one. Interesting that the NA boxart seemingly doesn't though.

Just pre-order this from Base . It states in the box pic on there about a download being required - might be due to online play maybe?
Hopefully rather than half the game anyway

Hmm, it's enough for me to be concerned. Time to cancel my preorder I suppose.

I was hoping this would be a small file...maybe it won’t be a big download. NFS on switch has a required download but it’s only a gb or two gb, hoping that’s the case here with THPS

It’s up for pre order on eShop and it’s just over 12gb, so I’m assuming the physical release is on a 8gb cartridge and a 4gb download so not too bad

Come on Friday! Mario Golf, Momster Hunter Stories 2 demo, and Tony Hawk PS 1/2!

Been patiently waiting ever since it was announced for other platforms, banking on the inevitable Switch release, and here we are! No more double dips from me Activision! No sir. You think you’re slick but I’ve caught onto your tricks. Yaaa, I see you, and called your bluff.

This video is from roughly same era as Tony Hawk Pro skater. Still amusing, too. (because Owen Wilson)

Owen Wilson can skateboard?

You learn something new every day.

No. He. Can't.😂😁😁 lol

That's exactly what I thought when I saw the Yeah Right! video. "Owen Wilson has skills?" Director Spike Jonze though it would be funny to throw Owen Wilson in that skate video (they were friends). For fun, he gave Owen a list of trick names and a script to memorize one day, told him to stop by where they were filming the skate video on the following day. So, yeah, a pro skater stunt doubled for Owen hitting that rail. It's funny

(I think I learned these details from the tv show Epicly Later'd, when they did a bio on Spike Jonze.)

Where are the Tony Hawks and Mario Golf reviews? (Famished aside) Shouldn't they be out by now... 🤔 Feels like surprisingly little hype.

Ohh, is that when embargoes drop? Can't decide between buying this or Mario Golf first!

At the moment I'm leaning towards this as I think the online always has the potential to die off on third party Switch games... Launch period might be it's peak in terms of always finding a game. There's no Crossplay AFAIK.

Got my copy today. There's a 3.5gb download, so not too egregious. I didn't bother to check if it's mandatory for the game to function or not though. I do recall the PS4 version also said that a download was required and that was a blu-ray disc (and wasn't really required for the game to function).

@Reprise

Thanks for the info.

I now feel justified in cancelling my preorder for the physical copy.

@Magician No problem, glad you made the right decision for yourself. It seems like an excellent port, so enjoy the digital version if you decide to pick that up.

@Magician Main thing stopping me from getting it too. Nothing more annoying than when publishers skimp out on the cartridge size to cut costs. Just use a 16GB one and put the whole game on there, charge $10 more if you have to.

@BenAV

Yeah, it's disheartening. I would've gladly paid a "Switch tax" ($50) for a physical copy using a 16GB cartridge with everything on it. But...Activision cheapened out, so here we are. It's frustrating.
