“N64 isn’t dead yet! THPS 3 is coming out”

Friday, June 2nd, 2017

I stumbled across something midly interesting.

This is an old thread on IGN forums from 2002 discussing the announcement of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 on the Nintendo 64, which would then turn out to be the final game on that console!

I feel like an architect discovering ancient ruins or like I stepped into a time machine!

This is amazing! It’s interesting to see how people thought about it when they came out.

The majority of people were saying that it was just a rumour, and that it would never happen, other have said it never came out.

Well, it did come out, but only in the US, and had a limited release. According to Guiness Book of Records Gamer’s Edition in 2008, it only had a release of 300-400 copies, another source says 500, and VG-Charts says it only had 80,000. So I don’t know what the exact figure is, but it isn’t much, that’s for sure.

I’ve also learned from this that a Powerpuff Girls game was the 2nd last to be released for the console, and this is a very good source, since it’s primary and from the time.

The situation with the console at this time, according to this forum, was that stores stopped selling N64 games, and one person on the forums had trouble finding the send game when that came out, and for the most part, N64 games were only available online!

I learned a heck of a lot from this, and I haven’t even finished reading it!
