We’d heard rumblings that Tony Hawk was working on something with motion controls — which seems only natural after EA’s Skate hit the scene with its intuitive Flickit control scheme, and Shaun White’s game put the Wii’s Balance Board to good use, both making the Tony Hawk method of arcade-style button mashing feel a little dated. Well, Tony’s new Ride is looking to change all that, with a skateboard peripheral that looks like… a skateboard. It’s hard to tell from just looking at it how precisely interactive the controller will be — it seems basic balancing and leaning would be in, while Christ Air-ing your little sister in the face wouldn’t go over so well. According to the man himself, Hawk is quite good at the game, and skateboarders should find the transition easy. A promo video is after the break, and apparently on June 2nd we’ll be seeing this thing in action.
