The next generation gaming is taking the globe by storm and to keep up with the madness, the Tony Hawk gaming franchise has created Tony Hawk’s Project 8 to feed the frenzy for the new wave of consoles. This latest version is hands down the most realistic and exciting skateboard game ever! The game captures the true essence of skateboarding with realistic graphics and extremely responsive controls.

Oakley is part of this amazing game and was granted the opportunity to brand the “O” all over it. We have 5 glasses, t-shirts, hats, wristbands, banners and posters prominently featured in Project 8. The game enables players to step up and shred as Oakley’s very own Ryan Sheckler and Bob Burnquist do in real life. The athletes were scanned in 3D with their exact motions’ being captured, which truly intensifies the gaming experience. You cannot even fathom how legit this game is until you give it a whirl!

Make sure to check out a teaser of the video game, starring Ryan Sheckler in Oakely gear and sunglasses, as well as our photo gallery of screen shots. To learn more about this game check Tony Hawk Project 8 website.
