X06: Images of Guitar Hero 2

Also released during X06 (Should I stop using that phrase?), here is a couple of images from Guitar Hero 2.
Update: Hop, done, image of the guitar in the news. And it rocks.

Guitar Hero 2 on 360?

i heard on, i think, the EGM podcast that this game will have megadeth's hangar 18! no joke.

this looks trippy but it could look better on 360 IMO. low poly kinda. whatever i guess.

dunno if i should get this game. i can play these songs on a REAL guitar and thats far more in depth if you know what i mean haha.

Im getting this, here is too hoping they release it in europe not ten years later and it has online vs mode. im getting the ps2 version too i guess

edit: any chance for some 720P gameplay movies soon? :O

i hope that the makers decide to add extra songs rather than trying to use the 360 to have amazing graphics....
anywhoo....i still think amplitude was the game to beat, was amazing

I can't describe how glad I am the 360 got this series. GH is one of my favorite games of all time.

how much with the guitar????

Isn't this just another button memorization game? Why all the hype?
Commented on 2006-09-28 07:21:10
the 360 guitar is an X-Plorer!!!!


and synce, it is a button memorization game, but its by far the most fun ive ever had with this type of game. granted, im a musician, so anything involving a guitar i'll automatically love.

i think im actually MORE excited for this than gears of war. i hope they somehow release the first games' song list, even if its like a $20 download, id buy it.

the first guitar hero was so much fun on the ps2...my cousing had the guitar accessory and everything....amplitude was cool as well, though it gave me a headache with all the crazy colours haha

You havn't actually played Guitar Hero then?
Commented on 2006-09-28 11:17:00
This makes me so excited. That guitar looks BADA**.
For those of you who play guitar already, yeah, I understand it's much more fun to play it yourself, but how about dueling with your buddies or someone over Xbox live and wrecking them?

4:3 aspect ratio (gui included)? Smells FISHY. They've probably been making it for the PS2 and went next-gen in a hurry.

Lol uhmm... Guitar Hero is on PS2 already ;) And you'd be right, they are making GH2 on PS2, but they're not canning that version to move it over. The X360 version is like a port, same engine, slightly updated graphics, possibly new tracks to play... we just have the bonus of better sound and downloadable content, and a hot new guitar controller to boot.

Oh see I didnt know that. Makes sense though, the PS2 version will outsell the 360 version 1000:1 so they'd be insane not to do it. Just put this one in the port-jobs file.
