Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD Out Next Month

Flaming June.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD is one of those games that’ll keep me busy for months. I know this because each game in the series (until they lost their way a little, anyway) had me glued to the console for ages, perfecting lines and playing HORSE.

And, thankfully, there’s not long to wait.

Although Activision are still sticking to ‘Summer’, Tony Hawk himself has spilled the beans about when the game will be out.

“HUGE thanks to robojoshy for the donation & for keeping the THPS dream alive with @TonyHawksPSHD (out in June… yeah I said it),” was his Tweet yesterday, pretty much locking down the game for a release at some point next month.

You can see some screens of the game here, and read some great news about the utterly brilliant original music soundtrack here.

      Agreed. Well, 2X. 2X had better graphics and a few secrets. Bought a US Xbox just to play it.

      THPS 2 was the best in the series, and I still have it and play it on the PC.

    Great, apart from the fact they completely messed up the physics and it will play nothing like the original but great…

        I think (read: hope) that was just to allow the footage to show more tricks rather than reflecting what the actual gameplay will be, if that makes sense.

        Yeah I think Paddy is right, theres a real difference in the camer perspective between TH2 and 3, from the few gameplay clips out there this looks more like 2. Fingers crossed for a demo so we can find out before we shell out.

    Would have loved this to be available on Vita too. Either way, very exciting!

      Can you imagine it breathing new life into a creaky old PSP? Oooh, chances are slim, but I can still dream :)

        I’d have just been happy for them to release THPS2 on PSN. No idea why they haven’t, it’d have sold like crazy.
