We reported last Wednesday that Guitar Hero II was on its way to the multiple consoles rather than ending up a PS2 exclusive like its predecessor, though Xbox 360 was never specifically mentioned. According to an Activision X06 press release, it is now.
Additionally, RedOctaneÂ® announced today that Guitar Hero IIâ„˘ will be rocking Xbox 360â„˘. Guitar Hero II is the follow-up to 2005â€™s award-winning release, Guitar Hero, which rocked the game industry and garnered a stack of awards including: â€śBest Offline Multiplayer Game 2005â€ť and â€śMusic Game of the Year 2005â€ť from IGN.com, â€śBest Soundtrack 2005â€ť at the Spike TV Videogames Awards and five D.I.C.E. awards, including Outstanding Innovation in Gaming and Family Game of the Year.
The game will feature an all-new controller specifically designed for the Xbox 360 called the X-Plorer, based on the famous Gibson Explorer rock/metal guitar; and as should be with all 360 titles, downloadable content. Guitar Hero II should have some things shown at X06, which is going on right now (if you just came out of your cave and weren’t aware.)
