Xbox 360 to shred with new board controller

Qmotions cuts deal to develop its "Big Air" wireless board for Microsoft.

I4U News

Microsoft may be working on its own version of the Wiimote but, until it surfaces ( so to speak ), another wireless controller is heading for the Xbox 360. The only difference is you use your feet, not your hands.

Qmotions has cut a deal to develop versions of its skateboard controller for Microsoft's game console, according to I4U News. The company, which also makes controllers for golf, baseball, and other games, plans to release its "Big Air" full-size board for the Xbox in the second half of this year, possibly following up with other Microsoft-endorsed products.

As for us, we're still waiting for an adult-size version of the virtual jet skis .
