VGA 2011: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD Harks Back To The Glory Days
Posted by Sammy Barker
When Tony Hawk confirmed on Twitter that he was heading (skating?) to this year's VGAs to announce a brand new game, we were secretly cautiously optimistic
We hoped that Activision would see the value in a classic Tony Hawk game after all these years, but after the disastrous Tony Hawk Ride, we weren't ready to place a bet on it.
Thankfully, Activision is smarter than it looks. The publisher has announced Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD — a downloadable release designed to celebrate the extreme sports series.
The game will feature a selection of favourite stages from classic Tony Hawk titles, including memorable locations such as the School (squee!) and Downhill. The game will retail for $20 when it launches "early next year" on PlayStation Network.
The VGAs is already off to a stormer, then. This is fantastic news. The only crime is that it hasn't happened sooner.
