Guitar Hero: 1980s Edition?

US mag claims it's on the way.

A 1980s themed edition of Guitar Hero is next on the agenda for RedOctane and developer Harmonix.

That's according to a report in US magazine Electronic Gaming Monthly, which claims that the game - as yet unannounced - will ship sometime this spring.

EGM didn't specify platforms, sadly, but you'd expect a PlayStation 2 version, obviously.

Xbox 360 will be supported by Guitar Hero II, but it's possible the companies would try to avoid cannibalising those sales with a separate edition released in close proximity - not least because of their publicly stated intention to deliver extra 360 content via Live Marketplace.

RedOctane's UK representatives weren't immediately able to confirm the report, but suggested we'd hear more from the company in the very near future.
