Robobmodo’s Josh Tsui has said that the new peripheral for Tony Hawk: Ride will up the ante in the game peripheral market.

Speaking with GI.biz, Tsui told the site that the final design of the skateboard peripheral will be consumer friendly with a white finish and will be worth the higher price compared to standard software.

“It’s a very enhanced piece of machinery,” he said. “This is the most advanced peripheral on the market. It really is going to usher a next generation of controllers for games.

“The other thing is that this is an advanced piece of software and hardware put together – this is a full package – and when people see how tightly integrated it is, what a great experience it is, people will pay the right price for it.”

Tsui said that Activision plans to use the board for multiple new titles, and not just for sports.
