It started with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, and Tony Hawks Skateboarding in Europe in 1999 on the PlayStation. Tony Hawk was in its early era master in skateboarding games. Until that Electronic Arts in 2007 came with its own franchise, called Skate. It was a huge hit and Tony Hawk did for the canvas cases. Now, ten years after the first game it's time for a fresh wind through the series. The Gamescom 2009 we were testing the game for you."
