Today Activision revealed a strange pre-order bonus for Guitar Hero 5. According to the official offer page, gamers in the USA who pre-order Guitar Hero 5 at a participating retailer will receive a copy of Guitar Hero: Van Halen for free.

In order to take advantage of this deal, either pre-order GH5 via this link, or head over to a participating retailer and look for specially marked copies of GH5.

For the official details, hit the jump.

To the best of my knowledge this offer applies to the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and PS2 versions.

The official details read: “For a limited time while supplies last. You must redeem this offer by 10/31/09 (mail in submissions must be postmarked on or before 10/31/09). Allow up to 6 weeks for delivery of your Guitar Hero Van Halen game. Coid where prohibited. Limit one Guitar Hero Van Halen game (on available consoles), with the purchase of each specially marked GH6 Game. Good only in the USA. Go to WWW.GuitarHero.com/VanHalenGameOffer to redeem online, or Mail: (1) a letter with your name, address, platform of choice, and unique game code from your GH5 manual, (2) offer sticker (From GH5 packaging), and (3) a copy of dated sales receipt, to: Van Halen Game Offer, 444 Castro St. Suite 140, Mountain View, CA 94041. Activision assumes no responsibility for lost submission via internet or lost/damaged mail.

  1. That’s pretty awesome. Especially as there are a lot of complaints about the number of GH titles coming out. Nice to see them giving a little back to the people.
