It was announced during Activision's earnings call earlier today that the upcoming Tony Hawk: Ride will only be released in three territories in 2009. For everyone else, it's a 2010 game.

The lucky three are the United States, United Kingdom and Germany. If you live in France, Italy, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, the Netherlands, South Africa, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Korea, Belgium, Switzerland or Mexico (or anywhere in between), sorry, you're shit out of luck.

Tacky plastic peripherals are expensive and difficult to manufacture, and like Rock Band's staggered release a few year's back, seems there just aren't enough of them to go around on launch day.

Cannot wait to see the inevitable Youtube video of some chump "dropping into a halfpipe" off of the couch.....

More interesting than the (limited) launch of "Tony Hawks Clutching At Straws" AKA "Ride" is the fact that we have had no mention thus far of Skate 3.....Let's hope they aren't making a peripheral as well.
