Tony Hawk's Tony Hawk: Shred Outed By Tony Hawk

Skateboarding legend Tony Hawk may have just officially sent the Activision PR team into a 720-degree tizzy, tweeting about Tony Hawk: Shred, quite possibly the more shred-tastic follow-up to the skateboard-as-controller experiment Tony Hawk: Ride.

Mr. Hawk cryptically named something that we're just wildly assuming is his next project by way of the Twitter, saying "Tony Hawk: Shred. There, I said it. Actually, I named it. Somewhere a PR team is reeling." Doubtful, as we've been expecting more Tony Hawk: Ride-style games since the first one faceplanted at retail.

We know that Hawk and company are still optimistic about the future of the Tony Hawk: Ride skateboard controller, for better or worse. Tony has previously said that, in addition to more skateboarding games that you can stand on, the option for "other board-type games, [including] surfing, snowboarding" sounds appealing to him.

They shred in snowboarding right? If Tony Hawk: Shred does take Tony and team to the slopes, it wouldn't be the first Tony Hawk branded game to feature the sport. Tony Hawk Motion for the Nintendo DS had its share of snowboarding fun. And with pro snowboarder Shaun White taking on skateboarding, it would bring balance to the world of extreme sports, no?

Update: Looks like Tony has removed said Tweet. But it happened.

I skipped Skate 2 after playing its demo.

Now after playing the Skate 3 demo and seeing all of the improvements (i'm sure a lot of them I missed in Skate 2) I can really see no reason to ever go back to the Tony Hawk series. I was astounded by the move variety in Skate 3. They really stepped up and added in so many more things than the first game had. Skipping Skate 2... I never bothered with the trash that was Ride and I doubt they can do anything to change that with another game.
