Developed by Redoctane and published by Activision, the Xbox360™ music game Guitar Hero II is shipping today at US$ 109.90. This game is region free and therefore expected to be quite popular in Asian territories. Today's shipment has been presold, but more supply is expected to arrive during the next two to three week. The item is retailing at higher cost due its large weight and volume, which led to a higher import cost as well.

Product features:
  • Dual Guitar Shredding: Guitar Hero II™ takes the guitar rock experience to new volumes by allowing players to play 3 different guitar tracks: Rhythm, Bass, and Lead .
  • Follow up to an Award Winning Soundtrack : Guitar Hero II™ follows up on the award winning soundtrack of Guitar Hero™ with over 55 new tracks.
  • New Modes: Guitar Hero II™ introduces all new multiplayer modes like: cooperative, pro-face off, and face off, letting 2 Guitar Heroes conduct their own symphonies of destruction.
  • Shred School: Guitar Hero II™ features an all new practice mode, allowing Guitar Zeroes to become Guitar Heroes with enough practice.

Better late than never! The Limited Edition release of Last Hope has finally reached us today, about two months later than initially expected. There have been a couple of push backs to due manufacturing issues, but we are glad that this has been sorted out at the end.

The Limited Edition release of this Dreamcast™ compatible shooting game contains a Vinyl CD soundtrack album (with 9 tracks) and an extra soundtrack leaflet, bundled with a copy of the game in a white color double disc jewel case. This release is strictly limited to only 500 units and each copy of the game contains a hand-written number printed on the back of the spine card.

The Last Hope [Limited Edition] was originally pre-sold at Play-Asia, but the delay has apparently led to a number of cancellations. In other words, we have around 80 copies left in stock now, selling at US$ 79.99 as long as supplies last.

As an apology to all customers for the long waiting time, each preorder will ship with a FREE Dreamcast Visual Memory Card as well as a Last Hope sticker.
