Guitar Hero II arrives with a new track list, new venues and additional play modes – including the ability to transform the original Guitar Hero SG Controller into a rhythm, lead or bass guitar.

“User-generated online content continues to grow in popularity, and the Play N Trade video contest is a great opportunity for Guitar Hero fans to show off their playing prowess and creativity and win cool prizes,” said Yuvi Shmul, CEO of Play N Trade.

Local rounds of the Guitar Hero II tournament will be held on June 16 at participating Play N Trade stores across the U.S. and Puerto Rico. On June 23, local winners will compete for the title of Play N Trade National Guitar Hero II Champion by playing “Free Bird” at the “expert” level on an Xbox 360. Local winners will be determined by single elimination in the best two out of three matches, and the national champion will be determined by points.

“Guitar Hero has a huge fan base and is one of the best-selling games in the country because it is as much fun to watch as it is to play,” Shmul said. “Contestants in the Play N Trade Guitar Hero II tournament can live out their rock star fantasy in front of their friends, fans and family for the chance to be crowned national champion.”

Local winners will receive a $100 in-store gift card and a “Guitar Hero Champion” T-shirt. The Play N Trade National Guitar Hero II winner will receive a multiplayer Xbox 360 Guitar Hero bundle and a $500 in-store gift card.

User-generated videos must be less than four minutes long and feature someone playing a Guitar Hero guitar. For more details on video submission rules, please visit
