Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 & 2 are being rebooted on PS4 for a September launch

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 & 2 are being rebooted
THPS has graced many platforms over it's reign and the first two games are being rebooted for modern consoles!
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 & 2 are being rebooted When Tony Hawk Pro Skater first launched, skateboarding was about counter-culture and a existed in a hidden world of sports that no one would dare call a "sport". Now that skateboarding is an olympic-worthy endeavor and after decades of X-games, it's hardly the same secret society it once was. But that first game is still the best!

The TPS franchise spawned a lot of skateboarding games on many platforms from PC to mobile phones. It's still a great genre that evolved with Activision and Tony Hawk. I'm excited to snag this release since it's not the original as we played it, but a reboot that captures the original for modern consoles.

I've seen mention of PS4, Xbox One, and PC... but no mention of Nintendo Switch. I'd be very surprised if this didn't release for Switch at some point.

However, due to copyright issues there are a few great tracks that will not be appearing in the rebooted THPS 1 & 2:
  1. Anthrax & Public Enemy - "Bring the Noise"
  2. Suicidal Tendencies - "Cyco Vision"
  3. Unsane - "Committed"
  4. The High & Mighty - "B-Boy Document '99"
  5. Alley Life - "Out With The Old"
