And you thought four games might just about polish off the series...

Despite arguments about who is second best in the American market (don't ask), Activision does have some good news to peddle this week, in that it has signed skating legend Tony Hawk up for a further... 13 years. Tony's contract with Activision O2 will now last until the year 2015, and judging by his excited comments in the firm's press release, they spent a fair amount of the half-a-billion-dollars the series has amassed since its inception on keeping him happy. The news puts an end to this writer's bid to replace the Hawkman at the head of Activision's extreme sports line-up [you don't even own a skateboard -Ed]. Unfortunately, I could not be reached for comment at the time of writing, because I was blubbing in the corner. Related Feature - Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 review (Xbox)
