    Likely confirming the months-long rumor of there being a remaster in the pipeline, Tony Hawk himself has begun sending out text messages through his mobile newsletter confirming that Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 and 2 are coming back. This would be the first sign of life regarding the series following the critically panned Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5. Activision will possibly officially announce the remasters today with more information, but what we know for now is that both THPS 1 and 2 are getting re-released, featuring their original music, skaters, and maps, along with "new features".

    UPDATE:

    The game has now been formally announced, showing off the boxart. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 will release on September 4, 2020. It'll be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Epic Games Store. The remastered will cost $39.99, while a digital deluxe edition is priced at $49.99. Those who pre-order will get to access a bonus demo to be released in the coming weeks.

    Vicarious Visions, the team behind the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy will be behind this remake.

    Hopefully this will be better than the other THPS HD thing they released a while back. Loved the Tony Hawk games as a kid, used to play the hell out of them with my older bro.

    I like that great games are back for a new audience but...

    holy hell has the video game industry lost all sense of creativity? how hard is it to pick up an old system to play these classics??

    They cant make a good modern THPS I suppose either after the chaos that was 5?

    I wonder if they will be any good.

    I also wonder if they will resist the temptations to add microtransactions and paid DLC.

    I played Pro Skater 2 on GBC back in 2001. I played the other ones but I didn't know what I was doing to enjoy it the game boy version was easy.

    I still have project 8 via psp emulator of Tony Hawk.

    Pretty hard if you want to play legitimately. It's not like these things are in the bargain bin.

    With modern devices? Pretty difficult/expensive for the average person, depending on a person's setup and how willing they are to deal with shit quality. Modern TV's don't support 240p resolutions any more, so you can't just buy a PS1 and a game and have it work unless you have an older TV that still supports 240p...but even if it does, it'll be stretched to hell and look like absolute garbage. So you're either going to have to shell out more cash for a big bulky CRT, or buy a decent upscaler, or buy a super shit $10 adapter that'll make the game look just as garbage.

    At which point you might as well just pirate the game if you want to play, or support the devs and deal with a remaster.

    probably cheaper to buy a ps3 and the game disc since all ps3 consoles read ps1 games, for n64 its abit harder to get a clean picture.

    i mean, why not remake them with the content of the first 3-4 games?

    compared to whats the norm these days, the number and size of all those stages combined is still pretty mediocre.
