No more air guitar for us. PS2 rock god Guitar Hero II has landed on Xbox 360 complete with a ‘tenacious’ new guitar controller.Sadly it’s still not wireless, so watch out for the trailing chord as you thrash through 70 teen-spirit laden tracks – including ten Xbox exclusives. It is, though, slighter bigger, which can only mean better in our book.The game’s been given the Xbox Live treatment, with competitive rock-outs ranking Zappa-esque performances on the online leaderboards, plus several Marketplace goodies to download.It makes it to the shelves this Friday, or you can order online now for launch-day delivery. Meanwhile news reaches us of a Swedish couple battling the authorities for the right to call their daughter Metallica. Coincidence? We don’t think so.
