For a while it looked as though Activision wouldn't be able to obtain the licensing for any of the old tracks from Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, but as the complete 16-track listing revealed to Sound and Vision shows, half of the soundtrack consists of original songs from the classic games, while the other half is made up of new tunes.
Lead Designer Patrick Dwyer told the site about the difficulties of finding new music selections that would satisfy the fans, revealing what the developer looks for in a Tony Hawk's ditty. "There are some songs that have an awesome intro and an awesome chorus, but the verse is really slow. Those don't work for this game," he explained. "We wanted songs that sounded like they could have been in the old game, but had come out after that game released."
Check out fourteen of the sixteen tracks that'll be in the HD remake of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater on XBLA:
