At the VGA’s Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD was announced. The game which is a mash up of the first two Hawk games will be the return to form for the Tony Hawk series. When the game was announced many people wondered whether or not the soundtrack would include the best songs from Pro Skater 1 & 2. Now it looks like it won’t be the case.
OneofSwords Dan Amrich brought up a very interesting factoid regarding music licensing that would hinder any attempt to bring back the soundtrack from Pro Skater to the HD title. The songs that were licensed for the games were only for those games, on those platforms, at that time. In terms of legal/licensing they’re back to ground zero, but you never know with things like this. If all fails there is still the option of playing the music on iTunes, Amazon, Zune, while you play the game.
