Tony Hawk To Return? Skater Hints At VGA Reveal

Skater Tony Hawk has said he'll be announcing the 'upcoming release' of something new at the Spike VGAs this Saturday.

Issuing a brief statement on Twitter, Hawk said 'I'll be announcing the upcoming release of something new on Sat; the same day as the Spike Video Game Awards. Coincidence? I think not.'

Most of us will remember the early days of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater with some nostalgic fondness, busting benihanas to Goldfinger and laughing at the crippling gaffes of our pixellated avatars. But Activision's baggy trousered cashcow became bloated in later years, finally taking a break after the commercial and critical flops of Tony Hawk: Shred and Tony Hawk: Ride, both of which came bundled with expensive peripherals that barely worked.

So it'll be interesting to see what the Birdman has to reveal this Saturday.

Come on Hawk... don't f*** this one up.
Tony Hawk 1 and 2 were two of my favourit games ever made. I used to play 2 over a mates house till 4:30am some nights before having to get up for work at 8am. The recent Ride game I bought and played once - it was just so boring.
