Oh good. I'm not crazy. I could have sworn I saw this trailer at Activision's E3 booth, but since it never showed up online for download/embed, figured my jetlag was playing tricks on me.
Thankfully for my own state of mental well-being, it was playing at Acti's booth, and while it's yet to be released to the general public, some enterprising soul filmed the clip and uploaded it to YouTube. There's no sound (well, no Van Halen Sound...DJ Shadow fans are well-catered for, however), but there are details, like:
- There are 25 Van Halen tracks in the game
- There'll be "3 signature Eddie Van Halen guitar solos"
- There are 19 other bands included on the disc, including Queen, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Blink-182, The Offspring and Weezer. None of whom I associate in the slightest with Van Halen.
- It appears only four of the band's all-time roster are making the cut: Eddie Van Halen, David Lee Roth, Alex Van Halen and Wolfgang Van Halen
