    Yeah mine is doing the same thing and I've exchanged the game 3 times already and I cleaned out my console with air duster! It sucks because I have every other GH game and they all work fine!

    Yes sir, Mr. Me Too. I have the old fat P2 and it reads all games except guitar hero world tour; traded the game in twice. I think it's time to upgrade...

    Me to. I've tried Guitar Hero World Tour on three different PS 2's with two different CD's and will not load. Everything else works fine on all of these PS 2's

    Same thing here. What's the deal?

  • wildchild967 Dec 26, 2008

    I have tried every solution listed on the internet, from changing system config's to cleanning the lasr and stil nothing. I also called the number or the paper that came with it (which was a long distance one), I got a recording pretty much saying they were too busy because of all the calls, they gave me another number and I called it, and wouldn't you know that they were closed for the holidays.

    We use the PS2 slim and it will play everything including DVD's it just won't play the guitar hero world tour. The bad part is that I bought this from awhile back so I am hoping that my 90 day warranty isn't up yet. That is if I can find the reciept.

    But you can bet that when I get someone on the other end of the phone they will be hearing about it.

    Until then, if I find a solution I will post it

Most likely from you playing burnt discs on your PS2 which tricks the laser to work on those discs, it's like a habit devoloping, you need another PS2.

The guitar hero world tour does not play on my playstatin 2

We had the same problem with Guitar Hero World Tour for PS2. We have an older fat PS2 that would play all of our other games but this one. I tried changing the settings to fast/smooth, changed the diagnostics, still didn't work. Finally, I took The PS2 apart, blew out the dust,cleaned the laser lens with a qtip and rubbing alcohol, dried it gently with a dry q-tip, and the game works!!

What's up with Guitar Hero World Tour disc not loading on the older PS2?

I think maybe that the guitar hero world tour is to new for the old ps2. I think that it only works on new ps2's.

Most playstation two system's have trouble reading multi layered discs. If you have a slimline design it might read it, but it is still a 50/50 chance it will.
