Activison’s launched new screens of Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD following the first showing of it at the Xbox Showcase in ‘Frisco last week. The revamp will use a version of Neversoft’s original code refined by Robomodo. Levels included from the original THPS1 and THPS2 are Warehouse, School 2, Mall, Phoenix, Hangar, Marseilles and Venice.
Get the shots below. Childhoods will be revisited by playing Jerry Was a Race Car Driver in Warehouse this summer for XBLA and PSN for around $15.

Activision has released a handful of new shots for Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD, rekindling our nostalgic love of the series and leading us back to happy, child-filled placed of 1998. Good times, good times. Shots are on AGB.
The Robomodo effort, which combines the first two games in the THPS series, launches on PSN and XBL this summer.

“Music licensing is a one-time deal. The songs from the original games were only licensed for those specific games on those specific platforms at that specific time. Any other versions created later would need new licensing deals. This is also why not all songs from earlier Guitar Hero games are importable into later games: they only signed permission for it to be used in that one game. Any change means it’s a different deal.” – Activision’s Dan “OneofSword” Amrich on why it’s unlikely Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD will have the soundtracks of both THPS1 or 2. No Jerry Was a Race Car Driver, then.

Robomodo, a Chicago developer behind Tony Hawk: Shred and Ride as well as contributions to Mortal Kombat, Fight Night and WWE, wants your dollars for its latest project. It’s running a Kickstarter to fund Bodoink, a Kinect-powered pinball game that causes your Xbox Avatar much anguish and motion sickness. Rewards available include appearances in the game’s credits, or having achievements named after you.
Check out the project pitch through the break; Robomodo president Josh Tsui claims the game will be the first Kickstarter-funded console title.

Once upon a time, the Tony Hawk series was one of the biggest in videogames. If you listen to Metacritic, the Tony Hawk Pro Skater titles are some of the best games of all time, and every one of them was a runaway bestseller. At the beginning of the last decade – just after the release of Pro Skater 2 – the franchise was generating $250 million a year, according to figures from analyst Wedbush Morgan.
Last year, the year of Tony Hawk: Ride, franchise sales were closer to $100m. This year, Activision’s trying – failing – to flog $120 fake skateboards to children, whilst Activision publicly defends its abysmal sales.
What on earth happened, and why, when Activision is culling the likes of Bizarre Creations, won’t Activision finally shoot the Hawk?
