    Well not really. But they've certainly caused a lot of disappointment for a number of people.

    Like many, I preordered GH II (a few weeks ago) with the idea that I would receive it on release day (if not earlier). And like many, I won't be getting it today. Though numerous people all across the country, East Coast included, have been getting them since yesterday.

    Ironically I could get in my car right now and be at Red Octane in about 15 minutes. Yet they didn't ship my package out until yesterday. Well, I'm assuming it was shipped yesterday as the UPS tracking number only shows "billing info received."

    Pffft.

    So...who's got it and is it great? I've heard it is.

    Sort of off-topic but it sounds like my Ratbat/frenzy KO that have been showing "Shipping details electronically submitted" for like a week. Those damn things better be coming soon GRRRR!!

    *end rant*

    Sorry about the delay in getting GH2, I hear it is really good.

    Its pretty normal Tuesday is the Ship date for most gaming titles now, and States that border oceans get them tuesday, and slowly gets across the US the next 2 days.

    At least that is how it works in the US. I don't know about anywhere else, but from what I heard they can be slow getting to stores the further they go from the ocean.

    I pre-ordered at the local EB, and got a call today that they didn't get as many as they'd expected, and I'm on a waitlist.

    Not miffed, but that's the first time I've gotten pre-order bumped for a game. :D

    Yup, when it comes to retailers, you're right. It's a bummer that they specifically worded their preorder to appear as if they were going to get preorders out to people on time or even earlier.

    They like to point out that they did say "or after the launch" but seriously...

    And as I mentioned earlier, people all over the country, East Coast included (RO is on the West Coast) have been getting them since Monday. My shipping location is about 15 driving minutes away and I won't get it on time. :(

    The Best Buy here had a pallet display that must've had 50 copies. Sorry some of you have to wait.

    Sucky. Hopefully you get it tomorrow.

    I have it and the original on PS2, was was seriously considering another purchase of it for the 360 when some downloadable content hits. First though, they need a wireless guitar to make it worth my money again.

    If you have a Costco near you, try there for GH2. Found it at the one near me and it was 10 dollars less (79.99) as well.

    So far it kicks ass, haven't tried the online option yet.

    Waiting for mine to be delivered. I also found out that I am a Guitar Hero whore as I already have both on the PlayStation 2 :(

    Getting mine tomorrow.

    Is there an online coop or competetive mode?
    I have read conflicting information on that subject.

    Ditto. At least I can now move the PS2 out of our front room.

    Apparently my shipment was not sent out until last night at 10pm. Way to go Red Octane. :redface2: 

    At least I only get it one day late I suppose.

    Wow, that's the very same reason I got the XBox version too, I have 2 PS3's in the living room, one is behind the TV and the PS2 is keeping it company for the timebeing. Time to relegate it back to where it belongs... the bedroom.

    Strip Guitar Hero ftw!
