Sounds like Activision are having trouble getting their hands on enough plastic to supply the world with games this Christmas, as both Tony Hawk: Ride and now Guitar Hero: Van Halen will see restricted launches in 2009.

While Tony Hawk: Ride will still be released in some European territories this year, Guitar Hero: Van Halen won't launch in any, with Activision confirming that the game's release date in the Old World is simply "TBD 2010". Sounds...ominous.
