Activision announced today that versions of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 for the Xbox and Game Boy Advance have been shipped to retailers. The Game Boy Advance version of the game includes a variety of improvements upon the previous installment of the franchise on the handheld, including head-to-head play, pedestrians, a create-a-skater mode, and all-new levels. The Xbox version of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 includes four-player support and a brand-new level not found in the PlayStation 2 and GameCube versions of the game.
"Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 for Xbox has great new features, including an exclusive level, enhanced graphics, and multiplayer support that allows up to four friends to hang out and compete against each other via System Link," said Larry Goldberg, executive vice president of Activision Worldwide Studios. "The Game Boy Advance version marks the first time the create-a-skater feature has ever been brought to the handheld system, and gamers can now play with up to three of their buddies with the Game Link Cable."
