Tony Hawk Ride is the latest video game coming with its own suitably shaped controller and, you’ve guessed it, it’s in the shape of a skateboard. To us non-skaters (it hurts too much), the skateboard looks pretty realistic and apart from the fact that you can’t use it while it’s off the ground, the video below shows that it can pretty much function as a normal skateboard.
The Tony Hawk Ride game allows you to use the skateboard controller to do all sorts including 180’s (in place) and tilt and balance your ass all over your mom’s sitting room.
Coming this June, you can expect to see a huge (and we mean massive) marketing campaign for Tony Hawk Ride. After all, we can’t expect ol’Tony to make a living from pro-skating at his age any more, can we?
