Test video of Tony Hawk next-gen?

Test video of Tony Hawk next-gen?

Found on the enormous japanese forum 2ch, here is a video that seems to be an animation test for a next-gen Tony Hawk game, according to the file name at least. It certainly does move nicely.

Now this is how Tony Hawk AW sould have looked like.

Very nice. Looks like they are going for the realistic approach to gameplay this time, without 7ft ollies and 100 move combos.

could this be for the Wii?

fantastic lighting model. The soft shadowing in perticular is excellent.

Ohh and nice animation too :=)

Tony Hawk at 2CH?

Are the Japanese even into skateboarding?

Skateboarding is very popular in Japan and the level is pretty high :D

Nice video with good animation. I hope they'll go for a more realistic approach too this time.

Very impressive and realistic..

Shows great fluidity and doesn't seem animated..very next gen stuff

Where was this on the xbox360's version of tony hawk!

Still if this is for the next tony hawk game..future looks bright

Really fluid animation. The ollies actually look lifelike.

but they still have a long time in which to mess it up ;)

Not bad. Some areas still need polishing. but so far it looks promising.
Can´t wait to see more.

The self shadowing is also outstanding. Very very nice video--I hope it is real! It was so nice I did not even mind the lack of coth physics on the shirt. As short and bland as the video is, all the small details look outstanding and actually excite me for the game... which no Tony Hawk game has ever done.

yeah this is how it needs to look. i was surprised it looked this good.
Commented on 2006-04-29 18:09:12
A Tony Hawk game looking this good??? Ha! I'll until E3.

wow that does look amazing. hopefully all next gen games will start to look this good.
Commented on 2006-04-29 21:23:54
There is no way that company will innovate in such leaps. In fact they refuse to hear any critique about their stale franchise that really hasnt taken a generation leap since it first appeared on the PSX (as in, appeared out of nowhere totally new).

Why would they invest in the future when they can milk us with countless last-gen PS2, PSP, DS etc versions three times a year.
Commented on 2006-04-29 22:06:30
hoping they go back to the more realistic aspect of skateboarding as many people have said. i prefered the pro skater games to the more recent underground/wasteland games
Commented on 2006-04-29 23:08:34
Great animation--nothing else is exactly mindblowing (neither is the animation really)--don't know why people would question this as being possible....so what AW looks like trash on 360? It's a vanilla port of an old game..what would you expect?

I also prefered the Pro Skater series to underground and wasteland, but I don't think the latter are horrible games either...THPS4 is my favorite in the series though. I actually LIKE skating as the pros rather than some generic creation of my own...I had the same complaint about SSX4--they went from pretty nicely developed characters to generic user creations..I hope that trend dies. Not all games need a freaking character generation system.

Really really nice. Arm-waving was really good animation, so smooth and realistic.

Well played, Neversoft would it be?
Commented on 2006-04-30 05:36:40
not bad the 360 version was crap so looking forward to this one.
Commented on 2006-04-30 12:49:34
the 360 was running on the old engine. I imagine the new engine will create a good ps3 and 360 version. Its taking a while for all the game developers to catch up at the moment. So where stuck in the transition from old gen to new gen. By 2007 it should all be nextgen.

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @droezelke: Which is... ridiculous. And no one seriously informed about international affairs thinks that the USA has declared war on NK. (22 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @Moonwalker: 3 weeks ago North Korea did a hydrogen bomb test, fired a missile over japan etc. world nations condemned the actions, Trump called Kim a "rocketman", it got personal, hell broke loose (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker all the same. Haven't been following the news all that much, but what started this whole situation? (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @droezelke: I wonder what it will mean, it sure sounds scary. If this is no bluff anymore...anything can happen. I'm sure Trump could wipe out NK without much effort, but NK could make a first move (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke Nothing I said was inaccurate. North-Korea has stated officially that the tweet from Trump is considered a declaration of war. (2 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: What do you mean 'outside of the US'? What difference does that make? You think the whole world is ignorant? Follow the news. The facts are right there. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth for the HDR i'm hoping it takes off on pc soon. games supporting it has been slow, but when hdr-capable monitors starts showing up in a few months perhaps it will improve. (2 Hours ago)
