Guitar Hero: Van Halen freebie running late for PS3

By Stephany Nunneley, Thursday, 15 October 2009 15:24 GMT


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.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
