Tony Hawk: Play Ride and I'll Be Your Friend

Tony Hawk seemed to take matters into his own hands last night, hopping onto Twitter to get people to play his latest skateboarding game Tony Hawk's Ride.

The famed skateboarder Tweeted that he was on Xbox Live playing Ride, dropping his Gamertag ( tonyinegypt ) for those interesting in joining him. Later he said anyone who plays his game would be added to his friend's list.

I suppose you could argue that he's just enthusiastic about his peripheral-sporting game, but this is the first time I've seen Hawk take such a direct interest in the success (or failure) of one of his titles.
