Guitar Hero IV: Like Rock Band but Totally Different.

13 05 2008

News is coming in that the latest issue of Game Informer has all the skinny on Guitar Hero IV. According to the mag, GHIV will try to compete with Rock Band by adding Drums, Vocal and Bass. In true competitive fashion however, GHIV will include the ability to create a song (sans vocals) to be played in the game. Here’s what Nintendo Wii Fanboy says on the matter:

As well as this expanded line-up, you’ll be able to create your own tracks (though this doesn’t extend to vocals, reportedly due to storage and copyright issues) and design album art. The game will let you upload five of your tracks to ‘GH Tunes’ (and ten when you achieve certain grades), and it will be possible to share songs in the Wii version. If you’re horribly uncreative like us, you’ll be able to strum your axe to one of the game’s licensed songs, all of which are master tracks, and include the likes of Van Halen, The Eagles, Sublime and angst-mongers Linkin Park

I only care about the guitar on a guitar hero game. I think it is a great idea that you are going to create a song. I am so excited about this one. Any word on a release date?

I dont get it. Why does Harmonix have to compete with itself?

Harmonix no longer owns Guitar hero. They only own Rockband. MTV games owns GH.

Oh, Thanks Will. When did they sell it? I dont really watch Harmonix so closely… I play the games for fun, but I’m not really a “Hardcore” rhythm game player.
