Tony Hawk’s confirmed on Twitter that he’s going to appear with his plasdtic skateboard game, Ride, in the Microsoft press conference today.

Well, he did. The tweet doesn’t exist any more. Joystiq captured it for posterity, though.

“Just practiced my part for Microsoft’s E3 keynote tomorrow (introducing #thride),” Hawk said.

“First time I’ve ever had to wear make-up for a rehearsal.”

Just a hunch, but exclusivity may be involved here.

The conference starts at 10.30am PST today.
