Tony Hawk: RIDE isn’t just a skateboarding game with a skateboard-shaped platic peripheral you can stand on, no sir. According to Activision’s Rob Kostich, it’s actually a huge leap forward in terms of games and gaming as we know it.
“Tony Hawk: RIDE is a massive step forward for the franchise and the gaming industry as a whole,” he said.
“The skateboard controller will redefine sports games by offering players a true skateboarding experience, hands-free, playing with friends and family at home or online in a variety of different locations.”
Tony Hawk is equally as excited: “This is the game I’ve always wanted to make,” said big Tone.
“Playing on the board is unlike any other game, and I’m excited for everyone to have the chance to feel what it’s really like to experience the true feeling of skateboarding.”
