A late NTSC-U preview version of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 for the Sony PlayStation. Built a month before the final build.


  • Aside from the Activision o2 and Shaba Games intro videos, no FMV's can be accessed in this build.
    • However, there is a file called PLACE.STR on the disc featuring the Shaba Games intro video, followed by footage of skateboarder Brian Schaefer's loop accident at the Tampa Pro Contest on August 5, 2001, edited together with an online video featuring gameplay footage of The King of Fighters 2000. A line written across the screen in big letters, using the Copperplate font, reads: "Place holder Video".
  • This build has no in-game music.
  • Create-A-Skater and Park Editor are inaccessible.
  • Only three levels (Rio De Janeiro, Suburbia and Skater Island) are selectable, despite all levels being in the game files.
  • Wolverine isn't in this build and uses the THPS2 model of Private Carrera as a placeholder.
  • Move the right analog stick in-game to activate a "Free Look" mode and lock the camera by pressing R3.
  • The timer uses the same style as used in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2.
  • The level loading screens in Single Session use a generic backdrop with the mode tips written in a font so big, only parts of the lines are visible.
  • A few goals in Airport have been renamed, likely due to the September 11, 2001 attacks, similar to the original PS2 version where airport terrorists became pickpockets.
    • "You've dissed the countries" became "Snag the flags" and "Bombs disabled" became "Lost luggage found!".
