Oh, I do love a bit of Guitar Hero vs Rock Band news and it’s war over the instruments today. According to Eurogamer, the developers of Guitar Hero World Tour, Neversoft, have another secret weapon in the pipeline in the shape of an extra instrument to go with the drums, guitars and vocal already added to take on Rock Band 2.
Now, quite what this instrument is going to be is another thing altogether. The obvious guess is the keyboard but I reckon a harmonica would be much better. Of course they could always take a leaf out of Nintendo/Sega’s book and go for a set of maracas.
According to GH project director, Brian Bright, though, it doesn’t even matter what else they bring to the party. As far as he’s concerned, you may be able to swap instruments between the two games but there’s no contest in terms of quality.
“They can pick up the standalone version of World Tour and use those (Rock Band) instruments,” he said, “and when they break, they can buy ours.”
What do you reckon? Possibly a touch of bias?
