Activision has announced specific details regarding Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 for the Microsoft Xbox. Although the game will essentially be a direct port of the PlayStation 2 and GameCube originals, Activision does have some specific enhancements planned. For starters, much like Microsoft's own Amped and Project Gotham Racing, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater on the Xbox will let players create their own soundtrack by saving songs on the console's hard drive. Along with all the returning levels, the Xbox version will include an entirely new area. Additionally, the career mode has been updated, giving players more character-specific goals, and the game has been better balanced for the beginner as well as the expert player. Finally, although there will be no online options, up to four players will be able to compete head-to-head via the Xbox system link.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 will be released for the Xbox in March. In the meantime, check out the first video clip from the game below.
