The Tony Hawk's Pro Skater games are legend and created an entire genre, which is why someone wants to make a documentary about them.
Tony Hawk has explained why his universally panned game Ride was "rushed".
Iconic skateboarder Tony Hawk will announce a new game on Saturday, presumably at the Spike VGAs.
A new Tony Hawk game is in development, none other than Tony Hawk has claimed.
There will be no new Activision-published skateboarding game on the shelves this year for the first time since 1999.
Last year, two of the biggest names in skateboarding competed for gamers' hard-earned cash with Tony Hawk: Shred and Shaun White Skateboarding. Both titles tanked, but which one bombed the hardest?
Tony Hawk: Shred suffered terrible sales upon its October release, but for publisher Activision the iconic skateboarder is still relevant.
Tony Hawk: Shred may have flopped at retail, shifting just 3000 copies in its first week on sale in the US, but Activision believes sales will pick up as people shop for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
"For the first time we're targeting that game to kids," Activision Publishing label CEO Eric Hirshberg told Gamasutra. "It's a gift-oriented game, but, that said, we need to build awareness for the game still."
Tony Hawk: Shred launched in late October on both sides of the Atlantic, and while NPD figures suggest it did poorly in the US it's impossible to say how it fared in the UK, although it has been noticeably absent from weekly Chart-Track listings, failing even to creep into the format-specific charts where sales thresholds are much lower.
Flop watch: if Tony Hawk: Shred were a quiff, it would have flopped from Activision's head down past its eyes, nose and into its mouth.
Activision is making redundancies at Tony Hawk: Shred developer Robomodo, according to multiple sources cited by Kotaku.
Tony Hawk: Shred will be released in Europe on 29th October, Activision's announced.
Activision CEO and rabble-rouser par excellence Bobby Kotick has chimed in with another gem: the much-maligned Tony Hawk: Ride board is his favourite gaming peripheral.
Tony Hawk: Shred will be released "this holiday season", publisher Activision's said.
Activision has confirmed that its new Tony Hawk game is called Shred.
"We can confirm we've given a name to the next Tony Hawk game - Tony Hawk: Shred - and more details will be revealed in the coming months," the publisher told Joystiq.
We assume that the new game will be out later this year. There's no official word on that, but if they're talking about it "in the coming months" then it's very unlikely that it's more than 6-8 months away.
Skateboarder Tony Hawk appears to have announced the name of his next videogame - and then tried to de-announce it.
