Tony Hawk Ride from Activision – with new skateboard controller?

With E3 just weeks away, doubtless we’ll be getting the deets, vids and general dribbling on this one for quite a while but what is clear is that YOU GET TO BE TONY HAWK! only with no wheels and a few buttons down the side of the deck. Really hoping you don’t have to start pushing them unless it’s for grabs. That could rather ruin the flow.

Still, what gets to me more about this campaign from Activision is not the controller but the fact that I should have been learning to skateboard all my life. Sod the fake deck. Jumping over the top of an entire half pipe looks much more fun. Oh, the life unlived!
