Tony Hawk X

The Hawk swoops onto the Xbox, announce Activision

It's always nice to get what you want, and what the world wants right now is more of Tony Hawk, on whatever format they can. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 has done startling business on PlayStation, Dreamcast and PC, with no sign of its popularity letting up, so it's no surprise that publishers Activision are eager to seize on a good thing. Ron Doornink, Activision CEO, had this to say. "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2x will set the standard for sports gaming on the Xbox with its stunning graphics, smooth animations, and refined gameplay. The online capabilities that we are including in the product will introduce the social aspects of skateboarding to the brand for the first time." The company has apparently been working closely with Microsoft since the console's inception to make sure Tony Hawk was one of the first games out of the door, alongside killer apps like Halo. A Microsoft spokesperson said they it was "incredibly exciting" to be working with Activision on Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2x.
