Tony Hawk's Pro Skater was huge in its time but how much did the game's endorsee get for giving his name to the series?
Bet he enjoyed getting his ass crammed harder by Skate than any check.
Bro could you hate any harder. He got 4 million in a freaking royalty check which is more than you will ever see in your life not to mention being considered the greatest skater to ever live and making hundreds of millions from that and endorsements. His name is attached to some of the greatest skateboarding games ever made so I truly don’t think he really cares about EA’s skate and judging by skate being dead other people don’t either
What a pointless comment lol. Why would Tony care about Skate doing well? Hell, Skate died before the TH series did, which isn't saying much but still makes your comment look even sillier and dumber than it already does.
Cheque? Cheque? Is it anything like a check?
I know right??
I saw Tony Hawk at the airport a few days ago in Jersey
I’ll never ever forgive Activision for THPS 5 that game was an abomination
1,2 and 3 were friggen bangers though. Dave Murra freestyle bmx 2 was badass too.
4 mil doesn't seem like that much for how huge that series was.
because 4 million isn't the total he received. It's one of many checks.... I'll just quote the bloody article "Although not going into an exact figure he got for the whole series he does mentions that around the release of the fourth game, he got a royalty cheque of a whooping $4 million"
Ah, assuming I didn't read the article? It was only like 3 sentences long and what I said still stands either or. Small amount.
If love to see the original games remastered but sure to the amount of licensed content in the game everything from music to skaters to brand names plastered on every other ramp it seems like it would be impossible to do these days. You especially can't leave out any tracks without losing the feel. I think it's the same even for a backwards compatibility release
Hey Tony, if Activision gave you 4 mill, then how much do you think they made ?
I'm pretty sure he had no idea just how big that series was going to be and got paid very little in comparison to what he should have been paid. Probably signed a few dotted lines and the rest is history.
I've met this dude a few times, super nice guy. He deserves every dime best skater of all time besides Rodney Mullen
Two very different skaters that both belong at the top. Rodney in the streets and Tony on vert.
Man oh man 4 million just to simply let somebody use your damn name.
Well that is after he built it
I like the old ps1 games more than these newer games. They are more fun with great soundtracks.
