    If it even exists, is it only going to be for PS2, or will be be available for the 360 (as either a standalone disk or DLC)?

    You need to get your video game news from a better source.

    Announcement here:

    Activision has a whole plethora of "Guitar Hero" themed products coming out and I could tell you all about them, but that would spoil the surprise.

    thanks :D

    too bad harmonix isnt doing it

    activision/neversoft is going to ruin the once great series (just like they did with tony hawk) but as long as they keep the gameplay the same, and spend all their money on good songs, it will be good

    they need guitar hero poopiedeloopie edition (zepelin,black sabbath, deep purple, hendrix, and some other bands, and thats the whole game =D ), or underground edition (where all the songs are like the bonus tracks on previous games, not well known songs)

    no offense to harmonix, but this is going to suck, because there wasnt a lot of good music in the 80s, unless they get some death/speed metal or some of the awesome punk music

    (please guns n roses tho)
  • edited May 2007
    Uh, YEAH punk, but there is no way that any GOOD punk music would get into the game, because all the great shit like Black Flag and Minor Threat and Bad Brains are all pretty much:

    "Hey I need a guitarist, do you know how to play guitar?"

    "No"

    "Well here, practice these 3 chords"

    "Okay got it"

    "Alright sweet, now just play those as fast, loud, and sloppy as possible"

    Unless you get some Dead Kennedy's, Chemical Warfare or probably California uber alles would be wicked. Too Drunk to Fuck would be perfect, but come on, my grandma plays guitar hero.

    Bow Wow Wow is a band... And they've been around on and off since 80. Their cover of that particular 1960s song which Aaron Carter also covered some twenty years later, is the song which appears in this game and is very much from the 80s: 1982 to be exact.

    I am somewhat surprised that no one called him on the fact that he said the transfer to Neversoft ruined Tony Hawk. Because, ya know, Tony Hawk has been made by Neversoft since the beginning.

    But other companies improved on what Neversoft did with ports that they released. Edge of Reality did the N64 port of THPS, Treyarch got Dreamcast, Natsume did GBC, etc. Really, the Treyarch versions were probably the best, but Neversoft still made them.

    The 64 versions were inferior and the slight additions of Treyarch hardly outweigh the entire design that Neversoft created,

    What are you smoking? You're seriously referring the the GBC games as an improvement?

    C'mon. They may be driving the series into the ground, but there's no denying that the reason it was so good in the first place was because of Neversoft.

    I heard that the new Tony Hawk THP8 is quite good, on the 360 at least.

    Tony Hawk stopped improving after Tony Hawk 2.

    I made parks so much that I forgot there was a skating part to the game.

    I consider Tony Hawk 4 to be the apex of the series, the untimed levels just were a huge leap, even though Aggressive Inline did it first and better.

    Plus Aggressive Inline had mucho ska and southern California music, and I love Reel Big Fish and Sublime.

    *steers thread away from a skater game back to GH: Rocks the 80's

    To Sean or another member of HMX,
    I was surprised to see your name on this release because I assumed Neversoft was doing all development after the xbox port.
    With this release, is it safe to say any addons or DLC for GH2 on any platform will be coming out of your company? Up until GH3 is released?

    Many people seem to dislike exspansion packs but I would love anyway to get more songs, themed or unthemed. (Is unthemed even a word, I don't know)
