We previewed Guitar Hero II at E3 2006 and discovered that the game’s big hook is the co-op mode where you and a friend can play together, taking on the role of lead, rhythm or bass guitarists to make sweet rockin’ music… With the Xbox LIVE service, Guitar Hero II will have new downloadable content for rock rhythm, lead, or bass guitar tracks and there’s the new X-Plorer controller, designed specifically for the Xbox 360.

Said Dusty Welch, Head of Publishing for RedOctane: “With its large integrated hard drive, Xbox 360 provides an incredible platform for facilitating downloadable content. We believe there is no better title to feature micro-transactions than a music game like Guitar Hero II, where the content is the basis of your experience. The relationship with the Xbox Live Marketplace creates endless possibilities for exclusive content.”

oh damn…..I might have to buy an xbox360 now ;)

are they still doing it for PS2 ?
Aye, it'll still be a mulit-platform release…

So it's not a case of GH2 moving away from the PS2, it's just playing on other systems too.
excellent - the word of ROCK will spread :D
Loving the first game, if they brought this to the Wii I would snap it up like no tomorrow :D If not stuck with the PS2
