Guitar Hero World Tour Out Today

For all you Guitar Hero fans, you day of waiting for your “Rock Band killer” has finally come. Today is the day Guitar Hero World Tour comes out with all the instruments — Guitar, Drums, Mic — and unlike Rock Band, this is available at launch for ALL systems: Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, and Wii (which still doesn’t have Rock Band 2). Check out our previous post here to see what makes this version better than ever.

What you waiting for? Go run down to your local Best Buy/ Walmart/ Target- wherever, and start rocking!

Oh, and let us know your take on the new Guitar Hero– better than Rock Band 2?

Rock Band 2 Out Today for Xbox 360!

Rock Band fans, your long wait for the next version of the popular music game has finally ended. Today, Harmonix and MTV Games released the next version of Rock Band — Rock Band 2 — to the world, and it can be yours for either $59.99 for just the game (for those like me who already have Rock Band 1 and don’t want more instruments lying around :) ), or $189.99 for the whole package: the game,¬† a new wireless drum, a new wireless guitar, and a mic.

So what you waiting for? Go to your local Best Buy, Circuit City, Target, Walmart or wherever and pick your self some new virtual rock star goodness, and let us know what you think of the new game (or if you’re waiting for Guitar Hero World Tour to come out next month) in the comments.

P.S. Owners of the PS3, PS2, or Wi: don’t be too upset, the Xbox 360 only has exclusitivity¬† of the game for a month. Rock Band will be available for the PS3 on October 19, the Wii on November 16 and the PS2 on November 18.

And current Rock Band owners, feel free to download Stephen Colbert’s new free song (called “Charlene”) for Rock Band 1– it’s interesting to say the least and you can check it out here.

Rock Band 2: Yes to the Wii and PS2; No to Making Your Own Songs

In another edition of the news slowly but surely spilling out about Rock Band 2, we have good news and bad news. First the bad: the game will not allow players to record their own songs to play in the game, according to Joystiq, which is surprising considering its rival, Guitar Hero, will include such a feature. (Dont be too upset though– we expect a gr8 list of downloadable content). And the good: Rock Band 2 will be available for the Wii and PS2– the latter incompatible with Guitar Hero 4– later in the year, as said by a co-founder of the game in an interview with CNN.

Much more info is to be released in the coming weeks (the E3 Video Games conference is approaching- and we will keep you updated on it) but has this swayed your video game decision or not? Tell us below.

Guitar Hero 4’s Guitar

Guitar Hero 4 Guitar- notice the touchpad after the orange button in the middle of the neck.

It’s been a while since we last wrote about the much-anticipated Guitar Hero 4, and today we got some more info on how the new guitar will look and run. Unlike on older Guitar Hero’s and Rock Bands, this new guitar features not only buttons, but also a touchpad that can be used for doing various things like playing musical notes, and also in the new music maker we told you about in this Guitar Hero 4 post. All this info is courtesy of IGN, who actually have a first look at the next version. I’m pretty stoked on this, and really hope the new Guitar could work with Rock Band, so this way I don’t need to go out and spend another $100-$180 lol.

What are your thoughts, this new info enough to make you wanna wait till this comes out in October? you going for Rock Band instead? or are you not going to go for either at all? Let us know your plans and ideas in the comments.

Guitar Hero News

We know, we’ve devoted so many posts to this topic, but there is just so much on it that keeps coming out. Today for instance, Gamedaily.com is reporting that not only is there a Guitar Hero On Tour (DS version) and Aerosmith version (both covered here), along with a regular Guitar Hero 4/ World Tour; there is actually a Guitar Hero Metallica planned for next year as well. Activision hasn’t officially announced this, and therefore we don’t have much details, but we can assume that it is going to be modeled in some way after the Aerosmith version coming at the end of this month.

A big question that we do have on this though is how will the launch of Guitar Hero 4 affect this version; are we going to see drums and a mic here as well?

Let us know your thoughts on this in the comments.
