it'll be stupid if microsoft doesn't let them make a wireless controller. you know the ps3 cversion will come out with a bluetooth one, even if it has problems people will stil buy that.

but I'm not too concerned, got mine at CC on saturday.

There will be wireless. I assume it is a plot to sell more guitars. Tons of people will buy this version and then the hardcore will buy the wireless model. As much as I REALLY want this game, I'm going to wait for the wireless model before spending 100 bucks.

I really hope the Halo song idea wasn't a joke. That would be awesome. I can't believe how amazing the gameplay looks in the online videos. I'm a heavy-metal guitarist myself, and I was impressed. The hand/eye coordination looks AWESOME in this game. Like, you really gotta be in the zone to nail these songs. Now I'm glad I never got it for PS2, so I can get it for 360!

Man, that Halo theme needs to be in this game.

Nice interview, sweet advert too.

I'm sooo looking forward to getting this in a couple of days.

The "Does the game support the Xbox Live Camera?" has another question inside the answer. Might want to sort that out :)

Sounds awesome, I've played the original GH on PS2 and it was great, GH 2 on 360 is only gonna be better. And from the sounds of things, they might be adding quite a bit with D/L content.

I saw a modded Mjolnir mix song being played on PS2 i believe, and official version can only be more awesome.

And i saw that ad last night during Prison Break, as soon as I saw the 360 and guitar, i instantly though "Guitar Hero 2."

Dang, so many good games on 360.

It'll be a fine Easter, no doubt. Too bad (and pretty stupid) that they don't sell additional guitars at least here, have to buy 2 bundles to get another controller...

And about the price, the bundle (game + controller) is around 85EUR in Finland.

After playing last night, I can say that it totally rocks. The controller seems a bit easier to handle on tough spots than the PS2 one. After playing only casually on medium at a friend's place before, I did manage to unlock about 20 songs on hard from the first go.

Go get the game, it's a blast :)

Although you want to be aware of this first:

Had same issues on two guitars.

Been playing this on 360 for two days now. It is really fun, but also difficult once you've reached the HARD level.
I don't understand the shop part, you can buy different guitars and guitarfinishes, but how does that change anything in the game, besides the look of the guitar your 'avatar' is holding?
Besides, you cannot even see that guy when playing :) only others watching you

    Tiz @aphex187: Kinect is still fun for a joke, mostly because it is a joke. A gimmicky peripheral that kind of suits Friday night madness. I have had my fair share of fun with it when relatives are around (20 minutes ago)

    Tiz @aphex187: Really Kinect is a glorified microphone. Super useful for when you don't want to cave dive the UI. For game, I think there is Kinect Sports. (2 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Thinking of getting a Kinect for the One but i take it the library of games is pretty sparse right? I already have one for the 360 and was thinking is there any point in getting one for the One? (2 Hours ago)
