Bobby Kotick loves the Ride board

Activision boss's favourite peripheral.

Activision CEO and rabble-rouser par excellence Bobby Kotick has chimed in with another gem: the much-maligned Tony Hawk: Ride board is his favourite gaming peripheral.

Kotick showed off Activision add-ons during a speech at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch's Media, Communications & Entertainment Conference in California. He held up the Guitar Hero controller and DJ Hero turntable before presenting the Ride board, insisting, "This is really my favourite."

"It's another example of how we've transformed the experience into a much more physical experience," he added.

Tony Hawk: Ride landed on consoles last year to disastrous reviews. "Don't buy Ride unless you want to be taken for one," suggested Eurogamer's Ellie Gibson.

A follow-up, Tony Hawk: Shred, which also utilises the board, arrives later this year for PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360.
