New Tony Hawk flops at retail

I don't know what the hell are they waiting to make a HD collection with all the great tony hawks pro skater games(1-4, and maybe underground 1-2) >:0!!! That I would buy, not this crappy games.

It only sold 3000 copies. That's pitiful. It might have sold 5000 if it was $10. Didn't they learn anything from TH:Ride? Why don't they just go back to the old formula that made the series good? They should make THPS5 or reboot the series next year.

I was a big fan of THPS back in the day. The last one I bought was Project 8, and the series has just gone downhill since then.

Hawk needs to just go back to the arcade-like game play that made 1-2-3 so much fun and release it on PSN/XBL for like $20-30. I'd buy it day 1, and I'm sure a lot of other people would too.

It's what you get for releasing a sequel to a game that was completely crap with a board that doesn't work.

everyone should have seen this coming and most probably did. same for dj hero, guitar hero, rock band etc, unless they are totally disconnected from reality

pretty sad to see all these big boxes at stores that u know nobody is gonna buy, better off not making them and donating that money to starvin peeps

Not suprised really, especially after the last terrible game.

Good. The less milked titles the better.

He has fallen a long way since Pro Skater.
