THPS1 Soundtracks NTSC/PAL

Postby _ENunn_ » Fri Nov 20, 2015 12:38 am

So I was playing the European version of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater (ahem, I mean "Tony Hawk's Skateboarding), and I noticed that some of the songs from the US/NTSC version are missing.

As some of you may or may not know, the three songs exclusive to the EU/PAL version are:

Le Hot - Grand Unified
Ain't Got Time to Waste - Aim feat. YZ
Blue Thunder - Aquasky

Today I did some playing with the soundtrack and here is what I heard in this order:

New Girl - Suicide Machines
Superman - Goldfinger
Le Hot - Grand Unified
Police Truck - Dead Kennedies
Jerry Was a Racecar Driver - Primus
Committed - Unsane
Ain't Got Time to Waste - Aim feat. YZ
Syco Vision - The Suicidal Tendencies
Blue Thunder - Aquasky
Here and Now - The Ernies

And then it just goes back to New Girl.

So only SEVEN songs from the US version is playable on the PAL version.

The songs that are missing in the PAL version are:

Vilified - Even Rude
Screamer/Nothing to Me - Speedealer
Euro-Barge - The Vandals

And what is kinda strange is that these songs are mentioned in the Music Credits of the game.

Licensing issues? Maybe.

I was thinking Europeans weren't familiar with Even Rude, Speedealer, nor The Vandals, so Neversoft replaced them with songs from artists familiar in Europe. Also, I think Euro-Barge wasn't suitable for the European audience, with it being about how America was great and other countries suck or something. I think that could've caused controversy.

What do you guys think about this?
lol hi
