I'm collecting mine tonight, after work.

Luckily the Birmingham Gamestation is open until 7pm so I don't have to wait until the weekend to get hold of it.

Out of interest, how many others here are fans of the previous games from Harmonix?
I can't say I care much for singing, so gave the Karaoke ones a miss, but Frequency and Amplitude are absolutely fantastic.

I love Frequency and Amplitude. Prefer the latter though.

Yeah, that's my favourite of the two. The switch from tunnel to flat track made it much easier to see what's going on. Long sessions on Frequency used to give me a headache because of the intense concentration required.

They are music based games like Guitar Hero only you just use the dual shock. Frequency has more electronic/pop style music while Amplitude seems to be a mixed bag (Slipknot, Pink, David Bowie) and has a more user friendly interface.
