    Oh wow, for some reason I didn’t think Tony Hawk HD was coming out until August~September.

    A nice fill-in game for the video game drought that is summer.

    Now I guess we won’t see Crimson Dragon it before the end of the Summer of Arcade :/

    Oh well… I’ll say that Deadlight is looking interesting. Tony Hawk will probably be cool too, but in the end, I already have a bunch of TH games if I want to play it. And I’ve heard some good impressions about Dust.

  • I used to play with dust when I was a kid. Now several years later I’m still playing with it……… lol

    Wait, is this a remaster of the original THPS? The best one with the amazing soundtrack? I hadn’t even heard about this…

    • malek86

      It’s a HD remake of THPS1/2 (it has content from both games). They also mentioned that content from THPS3 might be made available later as DLC.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Both? That’s even better that what I thought. I hope they actually do add the stuff from 3. That would be beyond great.

      • I’m not sure if I’d want to play on Pro Skater 3 maps without reverts.

  • Carocaro4

    I don’t know about this. Seems fun I guess I liked what I saw about Dust but that’s pretty much it. Ehh.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Please, please, pleeeease tell me Dust isn’t exclusive to 360. If it is, then I’ll bite, but I’d prefer to have it on my PS3. It’s hard to justify buying games for a system I never use, after all.

    • malek86

      Wouldn’t in fact be better to buy some games on that system, so that you use it more and thus won’t feel like your purchase has been useless?

      • Solomon_Kano

        I actually own a few XBLA titles on it already. I got it for free anyway, so no useless feelings either way. It’ll be put to good use later this year with Halo 4, but I’d prefer to buy as little for it as possible.

        • Kris

          Dust is being published by Microsoft, since it was a DreamBuildPlay winner. I don’t think we’ll see a PS3 version. Game plays great on a 360 pad though!

          • Solomon_Kano

            Hm. Alright then. It’s always these Summer of Arcade titles that end up pulling me back to my 360…
