So the GH and GH-related forums are blowing up with complaints about the Xbox360 GH2 guitar. It seems that a large number of gleefull customers came home after purchasing the new game only to be dissapointed with faulty hardware. The complaints?:
- bad whammy bar (this is the main one)
- the motion sensor not working properly for star power (second most common)
- buttons sticking or seeming "weak" (button problems being the least common)
Customers report returning/swapping their product 1,2,3, and even 4 times, each time being met with faulty hardware - most commonly a bad whammy bar. One of my friends unfortunately got all 3 defects in his first purchase: bad whammy, two buttons with problems, and a craptastic motion sensor. He returned it for another one and has since been met with a failing whammy bar.
As far as I know, there has been no word from RedOctane yet on any kind of official recognition of the problem or a recall (after all, it is IS just a couple days old with most of these complaints having started early yesterday).
Since the other forums are pretty cluttered with multiple threads about this, I thought I'd bring the topic here. When an official announcement is made, do you HMX folks think you can post here about it? (So much easier to come here than sift through the other forums). And I guess also, is there any information you can give about this unfortunate occurence? As soon as the re-release is available I plan to get it.
