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.

You can now buy Left 4 Dead on Steam, as you can see here. The shooter’s a little over a month from launch, and will cost you $45.
Not really sure why you wouldn’t want this, to be honest. Watch the system requirements, though.

There is a message on the Funcom forums saying that Early Access keys to the Age of Conan beta are now sold out and that access is closed.
“We here at Funcom are extremely happy with the demand that has been for our Early Access program. That demand has been so immense, that we are now sold out!” says the site.
However, it appears that people who actually have Early Access keys are also being locked out. It seems Funcom’s frustrated at people acquiring keys by pre-ordering the game, entering the beta then cancelling their orders.
“Pre-orders on accounts that was later cancelled will have their keys/account disabled,” the site informs.
This has led to several enraged players creating a 34 page thread on the German forums complaining about it, and many Brits who have keys and their pre-orders intact have apparently been denied access.
Funcom hasn’t commented on the situation as yet.

According to Kotaku, those that pre-order Age of Conan will get to start playing three days before the poor lowly fool that go into a “shop” and buy the game on May 20. Pre-ordering also grants rights to special items in the MMO past level 40, such as “the War Mammoth and Killer Rhino mounts”. Can’t say fairer than that. You may as well do it, you know, just in case.

Following news that GTA IV is going to cost AU$120 (£56) in Australia, Microsoft has announced that gamers pre-ordering the action title for Xbox 360 will receive four GTA IV Gamerpics and 500 Microsoft Points.
The 500 Microsoft Points aren’t going to be locked to the future GTA IV downloadable content, allowing users to spend them any way they like. Asked if this was an incentive offered only to Australians, Microsoft said, “I’m sure other territories will be doing something different, but this is Australia’s offer.”
For every cloud. GTA IV releases on April 29.
