New Guitar Hero title announced
Activision has confirmed that a new title in the Guitar Hero franchise will be released this summer. Guitar Hero: Rocks will be available exclusively for PS2 and there are currently no plans to bring it to Xbox 360. The good news for Xbox 360 owners,well for me actually, is that I've never heard of any of the songs so it's no big loss.
Maybe I'm just not rock 'n roll enough, but I'm sure there's plenty of people out there who have heard of I Wanna Rock by Twisted Sister, I Ran by Flock of Seagulls,Round and Round,as made famous by Ratt, I Want Candy as made famous by Bow Wow Wow,Metal Health as made famous by Quiet Riot,Holy Diver as made famous by Dio and Heat Of The Moment as made famous by Asia. In total there will be 30 tracks on the new game and you'll be able to jam in a number of retro rock venues.
"The 80s features an amazing variety of rock genres from hair metal to punk to new wave, and our dedicated Guitar Hero fans will definitely appreciate the opportunity to play all the new and exciting content we've added," said Dusty Welch, head of publishing at RedOctane. "As we delve deeper into the history of rock, we'll continue to offer a fresh experience and even more explosive tracks with the Guitar Hero franchise."
I'll lay a bet down that the new tracks and venues will appear as downloadable content on Xbox live at a ridiculous price... oh and there's still no 'Stairway'!! Blasphemous, to be honest.
