Tony Hawk celebrates with real-world Pro Skater challenge

Tony Hawk celebrated the successful launch of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 by taking part in a real-life THPS challenge while out on a skate.

Went to skate yesterday and was surprised to find my ramp turned into a real-life [Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2] challenge,” Hawk wrote on Twiter.

“Thanks to my staff for the thoughtful gift, and thanks to all of you that got the game this weekend. Hope you’re enjoying it as much as I enjoyed the development process.”
