Guitar Hero II bonus songs

Exclusive 360 content.

The sacred dial of rock is being turned even higher for the Xbox 360 version of Guitar Hero II, as Activision announces exclusive finger-cramping tracks, power-chording them into our collective puddle of melted faces.

Billion Dollar Babies (Alice Cooper); Dead! (My Chemical Romance); Hush (Deep Purple); Life Wasted (Pearl Jam); and Rock N Roll Hoochie Koo (Rick Derringer) are confirmed as being part of the 10 additions to GH2's original selection. Other rumoured inclusions are Possum Kingdom (Toadies), Salvation (Rancid) and The Trooper (Iron Maiden).

Key to RedOctane's axe-wielding foray into the next-generation will be Microsoft's online service, which looks set to offer new songs (possibly from the first game), leaderboards, themes and picture packs.

"The expansive capabilities of the Xbox 360 will allow us to provide a consistent stream of fresh new content to our fans," said RedOctane's head of publishing Dusty Welch, "and we plan on fully supporting these efforts."

We're dribbling with excitement about the shiny new HD graphics and the glitzy new peripheral of destruction. And, less you forget, Guitar Hero was also our 2006 game of the year.

Guitar Hero II for the Xbox 360 is due for a spring 2007 release. For more information, head over to the game's website.
