After being rumoured for quite a while, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 was officially announced in May of this year, and finally released a bit over a week and a half ago. If you're a fan of the series, chances are that — like it's happened to me — it has taken almost complete control over your free time.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 is a game that includes the first two entries in the popular skateboarding video game series, while also throwing in some new stuff to keep things fresh for those who have already played the original versions.
The developers at Vicarious Visions managed to strike the perfect balance between nostalgia and current-gen design, and it has definitely paid off; with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 getting some phenomenal reviews from critics, mainstream audiences, and long-time fans.
Reviews isn't the only way fans and players supported the game, though, as Activision recently reveals that Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 is the fastest game to reach over 1 million copies sold-through in the history of the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series.
Sell-through means that this number of units amount to physical copies sold before a game is shipped, so chances are that the total number of sales, which should include digital copies of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2, is much higher than 1 million; quite the feat, and a great comeback for the long-running series.
The original birdman Tony Hawk and Vicarious Visions, the studio behind the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, have come together to bring back Tony Hawk’s™ Pro Skater™ 1 and 2, radically remastered for the PlayStation® 4, PlayStation® 4 Pro, the family of Xbox One devices from Microsoft, including the Xbox One X, and on PC via Epic!
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 is currently available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC(Epic).
