Tony Hawk: RIDE to offer skate-balance-board

Although full-on ollies are unlikely, die-hard 'boarders will be excited to see that Tony Hawk's latest game is to offer a much talked-up peripheral for some more life-like skating action.

The game, that's due to be revealed in full at this year's E3 gaming event, will get a Wii Balance Board-style skateboard accessory.

Activision, the company behind the game, are currently running an online teaser that shows the skateboard device - complete with button controls on the side.

The game and its controller should be available on the PS3, the Wii and Xbox 360 - we will keep you posted.
