Guitar Hero II: Nov. 7th
The sequel to RedOctane's phenomenally popular music game will ship to American (and probably many Canadian) stores on November 7th, with a European release following later in the month, SPOnG reports. Given the launch of the PS3 on November 17th, SPOnG speculates that the European ship date will be November 24th. The game will be available in two versions: one with the Gibson SG controller and one without, intended for people who already own GH1. A lot is riding on the success of GH2, as Activision paid almost $100 million to acquire RedOctane earlier this year.
