There are few games that come along with as much cultural impact as the likes of the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series. And given the absolute failures of the last few Tony Haw titles, it boggles the mind it took Activision this long to re-release the classic series for XBLA and PSN.
Moreover, while it is awesome they finally did, it's equally boggling they gave port duties to Robomondo, the team who made the last failure in Hawk's more recent games. Also, where the heck is Neversoft? They could have handled this a lot better, and they've been very quiet of late...

Robomodo, developer of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD has revealed via the game's Facebook page that post-release DLC for the digitally released game, coming later this year, will be select levels from Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3.
Moreover, they've asked fans to suggest levels from the third installment in the series, though the final nod of approval on what actually makes it in will come from Tony Hawk himself.
Ideally, as a giant fan of the original two games (the second being the pinnacle in my opinion), I think drawing some content from the third game is a good idea, but I'd also love to see some fresh new levels in there as well, built with the classic series' sensibility, only a bit more modern.
