Yes it is officially out, and yes i have it. I will share with you my story of achieving this game. Its sunday, the release date of rock band 2, where am i?! sleeping. but i come to find out that the mall doesnt open until 11. Lucky me. I forgot to pre-order and i need to be at the mall at 11. I make my parents drive me up there, i walk into the mall at the stroke of 11. Game stop is 4 stores down to my right. I see teenagers walking in to the store, this scares me. I keep my cool hoping they pre-ordered. I walk into the store, i ask "do you have rock band 2?" the lady says "did you pre-order" in my head im thinking sh*t idiot, i say "no" she says "yeah we have 3 copies". A sigh of relief goes through my body because i know that very soon i will be home playing master exploder and chop suey on expert drums. P.S. yes the game really is amazing, now all i need is the ion drum rocker. anyone want to send me money so i can get it? i will do a huge review on rock band 2.
