If you thought it was going to end with a plastic guitar, you didn't have enough foresight to see the evolution of video game peripherals. Although it's a logical innovation in the land of skateboarding games, one has to admit that a great deal of time and effort went into the production of that special skate "controller" you'll have beneath your feet in Tony Hawk: Ride. Hawk himself has said he's been wanting to see something like this for years, and it's finally coming for the fans. Does this mean Activision grabs the edge back from EA's excellent Skate franchise...? We'll see.
