ACTIVISION’S UPCOMING TONY HAWK’S PRO SKATER HD IS CLASSIC SKATEBOARDING GAMEPLAY, UPGRADED FOR TODAY
The Best Of The First Two THPS Videogames in One Digital Title
Santa Monica, CA – December 12, 2011 – Ridiculously high scoring trick combos return to videogame consoles this summer in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD, today announced Activision Publishing Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard Inc., (Nasdaq: ATVI). Developed by Robomodo, this digital title takes the best elements of the classic THPS games and gives them a fresh update to create an all new skateboarding experience. The game will be available only on leading consoles’ networks for about $15.
“We’re going back to the core of what made the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games so popular, while leveraging today’s console power and online capabilities,” said Tony Hawk. “We've updated many elements to reflect today’s skateboarding scene as well. Long-time fans of the series will appreciate the huge amount of polished content at a very low price."
Tapping into fans’ muscle memories, the gameplay in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD returns to controllers and focuses on the satisfaction of linking sick tricks for maximum points. Combining sharp visuals with the best controls ever in a Tony Hawk game, the feel is cutting edge yet timeless. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD features an eclectic group of today’s skateboarding pros, including Nyjah Huston, Chris Cole, Eric Koston, Andrew Reynolds, Rodney Mullen, Lyn-z Adams Hawkins (Pastrana), Riley Hawk, and, of course, Tony Hawk himself.
“Tony is not only a legend in the skateboarding world, he’s an American icon that has had a major impact on videogames. We couldn’t be happier to be working with him again,” said David Oxford, Activision Publishing. “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD just feels right – we’re simply giving fans what they’ve been clamoring for.”
Oh, and price. You're getting a more powerful system, for less money. Just in terms of perceived value atm, i'd need the xbone price to be lower then that of the PS4. Since it's not as powerful. (36 minutes ago)
Instead of going for a tech first approach like they did the last 2 generations, they went for a novelty first approach, like nintendo did with the wii and wii-U? It bit them in the ass. (46 minutes ago)
But when it comes to single console owners, you go where the better versions of all games are. Last gen it was 360. This gen it is PS4. MS just screwed up their priorities. (48 minutes ago)
And for most people, that's all they want. Exclusives are vital for additional systems...since that's all you will be playing on them. (50 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: Yeah i guess thats it then. The multiplats. (51 minutes ago)
And guess which system plays them better? And you wonder why people are flocking to the PS4? In terms of consoles it gives you the better version of massive franchises like COD, BF, and AC. (52 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: as much as people put stock in exclusives. If you're only buying one system it's the multiplats that hold more weight. Since there are more of them.. (53 minutes ago)
