Variety‘s rumoring that Activision’s now confirmed Q4 Hawk game will have a “skateboard” peripheral. Big shock there.
A source has told the site that the peripheral will be more about “grabbing and manipulating the board to pull of all tricks” than for actual balancing.
It’s expected to release on PS3 and 360. Apparently the Wii version will not use the Wii Balance Board.
Robomodo’s supposedly working on the peripheral, and future Tony Hawk titles are expected to use it if all goes well.

Epic head Mark Rein has clarified the appointment of former EA Chicago boss Kudo Tsunoda to general manager of the Gears of War franchise at Microsoft saying, “Kudo will be the GM in charge of the studio that oversees MGS/Epic publishing relationship. Our previous GM is moving over to the studio that oversees the Halo franchise where there’s more action going on.”
He added, “We had dinner with Kudo during DICE and I think we’ll have fun working with him as we’ve had with all the folks we’ve worked with at Microsoft over the years.”
Tsunoda recently moved to Microsoft following the closure of EA’s Chicago studio.
