    Activision has apparently heard the complaints of the Tony Hawk series becoming stale and repetitive, and has decided to switch things up in a huge way. Activision announced today that the next Tony Hawk game for the Nintendo DS will use an accelerometer for its game play.

    Tony Hawk's Motion uses the Motion Pack accelerometer by Kionix for its control scheme. According to Activision "players can twist, tilt and turn through numerous skateboarding sessions." This Motion Pack plugs into the GBA slot of the DS.

    In addition to skateboarding, Tony Hawk's Motion will feature snowboarding, along with 20 minigames, both familiar and completely new. Venues for the game include Tokyo, Dubai, Vermont and the Alps. First-time THPS developer Creat Studio (known for Smash Cars and the Aqua Teen game) is handling this motion-controlled Tony Hawk game.

    As a bonus to go along with the new Motion Pack, Tony Hawk's Motion also packs in a second application in addition to the game -- at any time, players can boot up from the Tony Hawk's Motion game card the bonus program Hue Pixel Painter, a motion controlled painting-based puzzle game.

    The double game pack is set to release November 2008. We'll have more news as we get it, but for now check below for the first screens.
