PSA: If You Bought The Disc, You Can't Upgrade Tony Hawk On Xbox Series X

It's a pretty exciting week if you're a fan of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2, as the game is receiving a next-gen upgrade for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, but unfortunately (and bizarrely), it comes with quite a few catches on Xbox.

The biggest of these is that if you bought Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 physically for Xbox One, there's seemingly no way of accessing that next-gen upgrade, other than buying the entire game all over again (thanks TheGamer).

Strangely, the same can't be said of the PlayStation 4 version, so this appears to be limited to Xbox alone.

"If you’ve purchased a digital version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One or a disc version on PlayStation 4, you’ll be able to upgrade your version of the game within the same console family and bring your game progress with you!"

There's still bad news for digital owners of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 as well, as if you haven't bought the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game, you'll be required to pay an extra $10 in order to get access to the Series X and S upgrade.

It's a weird strategy all around, especially as Activision's Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time upgrade was free for all current owners on Xbox One, but it is what it is. For those who get access to it, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 on Xbox Series X/S will see the game jumping to 120 FPS at 1080P, or 60 FPS in native 4K, along with other graphical upgrades including sharper dynamic shadows and reflections, enhanced skater textures and much more.

What are your thoughts on these upgrade limitations for Tony Hawk? Let us know down below.
