My Xbox does not like Neversoft Guitar Hero games. I can play anything else and my 360 is fine. I can't get more than a minute into a song in a Neversoft GH game before it "overheats". Two red lights and all.
This happens with World Tour, Metallica, and SNAE.
For reference, the 360 was just fine when I played GH2, Hitman: Absolution, and Rock Band 3.
I Googled "Xbox 360 overheat Guitar Hero", and other people have had this problem. What the fuck?
