With 30 million units sold in a decade, the Tony Hawk’s series is by far the most successful extreme sports franchise. In 2004 alone, the series fronted by the former pro skater generated roughly $150 million (£91.2 million) in revenue for publisher Activision. Since the game’s launch in 1999, retail sales have hit $1 billion (£608 million).
