Guitar Hero 2-For-1 Promotion Includes Free Van Halen Copy
Okay, so a lot of you are down on Activision for being money-grubbing and totally insensitive to a gamer's wallet. But you might want to thank them for one little promotion.
If you're a hardcore Guitar Hero fan, you'll likely want both Guitar Hero 5 and Guitar Hero: Van Halen this holiday season. But that will obviously put a big dent in your checking account, so maybe you're just hoping to get one of them as a Christmas gift. Well, according to GameSpot, Activision is giving you a way to get both...for only the price of one. "While supplies last," you can nab specially marked copies of Guitar Hero 5 that will include unique codes that can be redeemed for a copy of Van Halen. This can be done through the promotional website, or via regular mail. Just remember, though; this offer ends on October 31, so you might want to drop your pre-order in now to take advantage. One interesting aspect of this deal is that it says to allow up to 6 weeks for delivery, but that would mean you'd get Guitar Hero: Van Halen in mid-December at the latest. Oddly enough, the release date is December 22...so does this mean you'd actually get it early, too?
Well, anyway, this deal is going on anywhere Guitar Hero 5 is sold, and really, it's a damn good option for the fans. This is a true-blue "buy 1, get 1 free" deal, and in all honesty, we can find no way to knock Activision for this one.
