The Birdman himself’s just dropped the first details on his new Ride controller on Twitter, calling the just-announced peripheral a “marvel”.

“The board controller is a marvel of new technology,” said Hawk.

“Responds like a real skateboard. You can even go for grabs and the sensors detect it.”

Tony Hawk Ride was announced this morning, making the first show of what looks to be a very snazzy plastic skateboard.

This really is going to be the ultimate in self-esteem destruction. Grown men, bent over on a piece of plastic in front of an HD TV, making “pretend” grabs on the stained carpet. Shouting “sweet”. All alone.

It’s out later this year.
