At E3 earlier this year, we heard that the next Tony Hawk's title will make use of a custom-built peripheral for consoles, enabling gamers to mimic the movements of skateboarders.

Now, news of a new DS title comes from the Australian Ratings Classifications board website where we learn that Nintendo's hand-held may also be getting a brand new tilt-sensing peripheral, also for an upcoming Tony Hawk's title, named Tony Hawk's Motion.

This is purely speculative at the moment, as no confirmation of a new peripheral has been made by Activision Blizzard, but that hasn't stopped people speculating as to what form the new accessory may take.Wouldn't it be great if we were able to use a product like the fingerboard (fingerskate) to control our character?

Wishful thinking we think, we'll just have to wait and see what's in store next for the Tony Hawk's franchise.
