It might pale compared to speculated announcements about the PlayStation 3 and the Nintendo Revolution, but Red Octane will be rocking fairly hard by announcing Guitar Hero II at E3. The first Guitar Hero took the PlayStation 2 by storm with its guitar controller and an excellent soundtrack. While no tracks have been announced yet, we do know that Guitar Hero II will let gamers play lead, rhythm, or bass guitar on the original Guitar Hero controller and will feature new venues and playlists for gamers to rock out to.
We'll get more details at E3. In the meantime, however, I'm going to throw up the metal horns.
