Activision announced today that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 HD Revert Pack, the downloadable content for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD, will be released worldwide on December 4 for Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network, and Steam for $4.99.

Skateboarding legends Steve Caballero and Geoff Rowley make their return to the world of Tony Hawk games and James Hetfield and Robert Trujillo from Metallica make a surprise appearance as playable characters. The Metallica track “All Nightmare Long” has also been added.  But perhaps most importantly for true fans, the Revert move makes it return for mindblowing combos!

There is more good news for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD fans: Activision has confirmed today that a FREE title update will implement the beloved Revert into the original release as well. That’s right, players will be able to experience their favorite levels like never before and create combos that fans were only able to dream about. Look for this update to hit the week of the DLC release.

“It’s been incredible to watch fans of the original THPS series and new generations of gamers embrace Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD. The Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 HD Revert Pack DLC adds even more of this timeless gameplay, with the best levels from THPS3,” said Tony Hawk, “We’re adding the Revert as part of our title update in order to thank fans for being so patient. Get ready for some insanely high scores!”

11/20/2012 - Persona 4 Now Available on PS Vita

Highly Anticipated Game and Premium Edition Deliver an Enthralling Storyline, Unique Combat, Deep Party Management, and More than 100 Hours of RPG Action to Players Anytime, Anywhere

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA - NOVEMBER 20, 2012 - ATLUS, a brand of Index Digital Media, Inc., today announced the North American release of Persona 4 Golden, exclusively for the PlayStation®Vita (PS Vita) handheld entertainment system, available in retail stores as well as for digital download on PlayStation®Network.  A remastered version of the award-winning RPG Shin Megami Tensei®: Persona®4 that earned a Metacritic score of 90, Persona 4 Golden for PS Vita system drops a host of features and content including new personas, added player areas and events, a wider variety of difficulty level options, and more cutscenes and character dialogue.   

Persona 4 Golden has been lauded by media since its first showcase at E3 2012.   Currently the highest-rated PS Vita system title on Metacritic (94 score), top gaming outlets are heaping praise, with Game Informer saying the game is "one of the best RPGs to date." Additionally, Destructoid.com has stated "if you don't have a Vita yet, this is probably the best reason yet to get one" while RPGFan.com says "Persona 4 Golden is one of the best games I have ever played in my life."
"We're thrilled to bring the biggest handheld game launch in the history of ATLUS to PS Vita," said Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, ATLUS.  "Persona 4 Golden's elements of adventure, combat, and storyline evoked such a strong calling with fans that the 10K limited run of the Solid Gold Premium Edition sold out almost immediately after announcement.  This is a must have PS Vita title for all RPG fans this holiday."

In the small town of Inaba, a high school student has been sent to live with his uncle when his parents go away on extended business.  Soon after arriving, people begin to turn up dead under mysterious circumstances, and at the center of it all is a strange fog and the bizarre "Midnight Channel" that appears on blank TVs on rainy nights.  The kids in town soon discover that they have the ability to enter a dark, twisted world inside the TV, and they may be the small town's only hope of solving the mystery.

Following in the footsteps of Shin Megami Tensei®: Persona®3 Portable™, the second highest rated PSP system game of all time (gamerankings.com), Persona 4 Golden for PS Vita system offers an enhanced and expanded portable version of the highly acclaimed original.  Visuals have been beautifully remastered to take advantage of the PS Vita system's crisp, vibrant 5" OLED display.  The game's aural presentation is better than ever, with 1.5 times the voiced dialogue of the original release.  A new online dungeon rescue feature allows users to call on other players for assistance when they are about to die in the TV world.  Persona 4 Golden is also overflowing with new content: new Personas to collect; new story events along with an all-new character; and stunning anime cutscenes, which include a new opening animation with a new song from master composer Shoji Meguro.

Persona 4 Golden is rated "M" for Mature by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB). Persona 4 Golden is available exclusively for PS Vita at MSRP $39.99 ($69.99 for the Premium Edition).  For more information, visit
