Press release:



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.”

This title has not yet been rated by the ESRB. For more information, please visit http://www.facebook.com/TonyHawksProSkaterHD or follow @TonyHawksPSHD on Twitter.

Why? this franchise lost it's way along time ago i'm afraid and to have a HD remake of the best ever Hawk game is just downright AWESOME!

Actually, the THPS franchise went from strength to strength. THPS4 being by far the best in the series, where tony hawk games lost their way was when they went 'underground' and then project 8, etc etc. personally i'd rather play any of those then the alternative EA offering tho. So i'm happy it's gone back to regular, crazy THPS formula. But i'm with formless, would have prefared a fully fledged THPS title personally

Meh. TH1-2 were great at the time they were released, but Skate 3 has given pretty much any player (or actual skater) who didn't enjoy TH for the button mashing, a rightful home.

And shockingly two different takes on the same subject matter CAN exist in the market. There is in fact not 1 game to rule them all in each respective genre.

2 was the best

New ones are bad and too far from realistic.

You guys should realize this probably means a sequel is in the works and that it's going back to this type of gameplay

About the game

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog 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)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog 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)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog 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)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog 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)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Yeah i guess thats it then. The multiplats. (51 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog 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)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @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)
