Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD could receive levels from other THPS games as DLC

During an interview with Tony Hawk at GDC, the skateboarding icon told Joystiq that Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD works as an HD update of the first two games, and as a potential platform for more content. Robomodo and Activision could add levels from Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 and/or 4, it could be added as DLC instead of a new remake of those individual games.

"The dream of doing this is we can throw levels from 3 and 4 and make them downloadable in this," Hawk said. "We can use this as a foundation and platform for that. I really want this to be a foundation we build on so we can do more levels, more skaters, more content that you can download because this is kind of revolutionary to do a franchise game as only downloadable."

"We thought we'd start relatively small and just do the best of the first two games and hope to build from there," Hawk added, but it's just wishful thinking right now. We followed up with an Activision spokesperson who said "Activision will see how THPS HD does and go from there." But is it possible? "Yes, certainly," the spoksperson added.
