Those who preordered Guitar Hero 5 for PS3 have yet to receive their free Guitar Hero: Van Halen game.
Reason why, is there was a “printing error” on the packaging.
Here’s the apology email folks are getting, courtesy of Joystiq:
“Unfortunately, we made a printing error on the package of Guitar Hero Van Halen. Fortunately, we caught and remedied the error prior to sending your disc. Our effort to ensure a completely positive customer experience has resulted in a slight delay in shipping your copy of the game.”
Activision has promised to begin mailing the game out this week.
PS3 was the only system effected, as copies for other consoles were already shipped out.

Activision has announced that those who pre-order Guitar Hero 5 between now and September 1 will get Guitar Hero: Van Halen for free before it even hits stores.
The full details can be found through the press release below or over on the official GH: Van Halen Offer site.
That is one hell of a deal, and may help you make a decision if you are sitting on the fence.

Activision was quick to talk about its line-up of music-centic games coming this year during its call to investors, and there are loads of ‘em as you would expect.
Guitar Hero 5, Band Hero, and DJ Hero are all expected before the end of the year and now you can add the elusive Guitar Hero: Van Halen to the mix.
Expected to launch on December 22, the title will feature 19 other bands besides Van Halen, as we’ve told you before, and has 25 VH tracks on the disc with three guitar solos for a total of around 47 songs.
It is to be made available for PS2, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360.
Full track list is posted after the break.

Shareholders are apparently a bit worried that Activision Blizzard may face some financial obstacles by the end of the year, what with shares in the company falling 14 percent in the past month.
The main concern, reports MarketWatch, is ActiBlizz’s current release schedule, shifting Singularity into 2010, and the growing assumption that StarCraft 2 may miss it’s release date.
“The beta testing for StarCraft 2 hasn’t started yet,” said analyst Jess Lubert of Brean Murray.”If it starts in August and takes 5-6 months, then launching the game this year is next to impossible.”
Some analysts have moved the game out of the ActiBlizz estimates for the year, some citing the potential delay of the RTS along with Singularity being moved and the possibility of Guitar Hero: Van Halen being pushed back as well.
China holding back a full release of World of Warcraft while Blizzard gets the server situation worked out between NetEase and The9 has also been taken into account by investors and analysts.
ActiBlizz has scheduled its Q2 earnings call for August 5, but a StarCraft 2 date is not expected to be announced – however, some analysts feel that Modern Warfare 2 will swoop in and save the day, with some estimating that it will sell up to 8.5 million units, and surpass 10 million units lifetime.
“Even without StarCraft, I think Activision should be able to get to their current guidance for the year. But without StarCraft, getting an upside to that number might be challenging,” Lubert contniued.
“I just think investors need that certainty of when it will ship, and it will remove this overhang.”

Finally after loads of leaks, Activision has admitted that Guitar Hero: Van Halen exists.
No one ever said it didn’t really, just “no comment”.
Anyway, it’s posted after the break thanks to D’toid who filmed it from the show floor.
DJ Shadow’s music is in the background. Just so you know.
At least you get a look at it though.

Activision announced it’s music game line-up for the fall this morning, but missing from the press release was confirmation of Guitar Hero: Van Halen.
That information was sent out in a separate mailing, apparently.
According to Shack, the game will be released during “the second half of this year”, and includes hits from Van Halen along with guest acts blink-182, Queen, Queens of the Stone Age, The Offspring and Weezer.
We’ve put a call into Activision requesting more information, so hopefully they will get back with us soon.
The Activision year-end financials conference call to investors is this evening, we may know more then as well.

A pre-order listing for Guitar Hero: Van Halen popped up on GameStop this morning, with a release date of August 4 for PS2, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360.
Activision has yet to announce the title, despite its existence being essentially proven by the German Ratings Board.
Seems GameStop’s making all sorts of snafus lately.

Guitar Hero: Van Halen rumors are floating around again, thanks to Germany’s ratings board.
The Unterhaltungssoftware Selbstkontrolle (USK) has rated the game for PS3 and Xbox 360, and it’s listed as, “Guitar Hero Headlining Van Halen”. Sounds like bad translation there.
GH:VH has been living in Rumorville ever since Activision CEO Bobby Kotick hinted around about it last year. So, while the news that it’s been given a rating raises an eyebrow, is not earth-shattering.
