Acti Details TH Ride Board
Activision today provided fuller details of the Tony Hawk Ride controller. The board sits on the floor and is fully aware both of pressure on the board as well as movement on its sides; users can lean on the board for manuals and other such moves while using a free foot to "push" the board or assist in tricks. It can further recognize spins on the board itself for reverts or other rotation-based moves.
The board will be bundled with the game and should work identically on the PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360 ports of Ride. Activision tentatively ships all three versions of the game in October but hasn't set out pricing for either the bundle or the board by itself.
