Ever since Tony Hawk let slip that some kind of Tony Hawk-related announcement would be announced by Tony Hawk at tonight's Spike Video Game Awards, the prevailing hope among commenters seemed to be that it would be not a new game, but rather some kind of HD collection of perhaps the first three Tony Hawk's Pro Skater games. Now Tony Hawk has made the aforementioned Tony Hawk-related announcement (to Joystiq on the red carpet, hilariously enough), and, well, it's almost that thing you wanted.
The newly unveiled "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD" isn't the first three games made HD-ified, but rather a "selection" of levels from the first two Tony Hawk games, including "Downhill" and "School." The collection will be released on various digital platforms next year.
The total lack of anything Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 is kind of a bummer, but hey, they're still good Tony Hawk games! Again! In HD! That's cool!
