Activision: Tony Hawk: RIDE is massive step forward for games industry as a whole

VG247: Tony Hawk: RIDE isn't just a skateboarding game with a skateboard-shaped platic peripheral you can stand on, no sir. According to Activision's Rob Kostich, it's actually a huge leap forward in terms of games and gaming as we know it.

The story is too old to be commented.

If someone is this into skateboarding wouldnt they just buy a skateboard instead of an electronic snow board?

And if people threw wii motes through tv's I wonder what people will do with this thing? Nothing more manly then twisting ur ankle playing a video game

this depends heavily on how well the little board will work and how expensive it will be. I'm not going to pay $150 for this game, and I'm worried about how it will actually turn out. Tony Hawk games have been too great in recent years, and this one just seems like a gimmick. I do want to try it, though. :P

Activision really seem to be enjoying the "games with exclusive and expensive peripherals" market.
