Guitar Hero News

Can it be true that Activision is releasing a new PS2 game before GH3 comes out? I read on this website that they are planning on releasing an 80s version this summer! I really hope it's true! According to this website, it's on its way!!

That news was last week's news! Today's news is that there's a ROCK BAND game by Harmonix and MTV coming out!!!! You can play with four players and it will have a guitar, bass, singer and drum kit! That is going to rock! If my neighbor didn't love me already... ;-)

The only downside to this new game is that it's for the XBox 360 or the PS3, neither of which I own. Oh well. Might be time to pony up for the 360. After seeing a demo of Viva Pinata, I might be interested in checking out some of the other 360 games. It looks super cute!

Update on 4/7/07: I think Devon thought this might be an April Fool's joke, but here is an article on Yahoo that talks about the Rock Band game and the 80s version coming out later this year. It also mentions some other titles that might be guitar related.

So I didn't make it tonight BUT I have a good excuse! I got an XBox 360 for $400! It's a premium (with the 20 gb hard drive) and it's already modded with a ton of games and 3 wireless controllers.

I found out there's a device called XFPS 360 that accepts PS2 guitars.

I'll be getting guitar hero II for it soon as I can figure out what to do about controllers.

PS... Wasn't the "Rock Band" announcement timed for April Fools Day?

Oh by the way the new GH3 is also going to be released for the Nintendo Wii!!! I've got a Wii, wonder if it will throw motion control in (you know you bash your Guitar into the coffee table and it "virtually" brakes amps in the game :D ). Also, GH3 will have online play as well..
