Activision has “Tony Hawk Innovation Plan”

Tuesday, 11th March 2008 06:51 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Says so here. The quote comes from Activision SVP Will Kassoy, although quite what the “plan” involves isn’t detailed. As you may recall, EA had great delight in telling the world Skate outsold the last Hawk by 2:1 last year, so Activision’s top priotity for the series is probably to “sell more copies”.

    Ugh, give it up Activision. THPS has had its day; know when to stop. Anything they do now will just look like catch-up.

    Did you play Skate? It seemed like an even split between people that loved it more than life and people that couldn’t get to grips with the controls.

    They can’t stop – they signed Tony up until 2014, iirc.

    Anyways, yeah I played Skate. Loved the shit out of it. A proper evolution of the genre, no mistake.

    The controls for skate were a bit tricky to get to grips with but it’s a game that i’ve sunk soo much time into. Its up there with Alpha Centauri for games that i’ll always go back to.

    Im hoping now that Activision have some actual competition it might spur them into improving the genuinely innovative features with THPS (nail the trick) instead of ramming more poorly thought out and broken features (the whole rigger section). I thought it was going somewhere good after the vast improvement from THUG to Project 8 but Proving Ground has to be one of the worst iterations of the series, I was tempted to put it down before i’d even finished the tutorial.
