Yesterday Activision released confirmation that Tony Hawk: Ride will be coming out for the PlayStation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360. This latest game in the best-selling Tony Hawk franchise will bring a brand new gaming peripheral into the market with it. Gamers who play Ride will get to grind out moves on their very own skateboard controller.

This feels like an unholy union between Dance Dance Revolution and a skateboarding game, but it also sounds like it will be kind of awesome. Activision released the first teaser trailer for their new game in an episode of GameTrailers TV, and from what the teaser shows us it looks like the previous entries in the series, but with much better graphics. The cool part about the teaser is the glimpse we get of the skateboard-controller at the end.

The controller takes the form of a black skateboard with no wheels (it looks a little like a snowboard), and it has a row of buttons on the left side. Activision has promised that Ride will get a full playable showing at this year's E3, so we should be hearing a lot more about how this new peripheral functions soon.

Tony Hawk: Ride has a website here where you can check out the latest news about this bleeding-edge skater game. We'll keep you updated as more information filters in.
