Bought the original 1 1/2 years ago
Amount: $80.00

Store: Fry's
I bought the original Guitar Hero for PS2 a few months after it first came out. I paid $80 for the original version. You can still get Guitar Hero 1 from Red Octane's site, but with Guitar Hero 2 out and Guitar Hero 3 (and Rock Band) on the way, why bother?
