Rock Band Instruments Will Work with New Guitar Hero

As a college student who doesn't have a ton of money (and space in my dorm), this news makes me eccstatic. According to Game Life, Activision announced at their E3 conference that your Rock Band 1 instruments will work with the new Guitar Hero: World Tour. Please note that this announcement was only made for the Xbox360 so, as a PS3 owner, I hope they will announce this for Sony as well. I see no reason why they would not do this, but hey, you never know, I've seen dumber video game decisions.



But wait, doesn't the new GH:WT instruments have five drum pads? Yes, the new drum pads from Activision has 5 inputs instead of Rock Band's 4. However, the game will accommodate the change by having the on-screen gameplay only have four colors.

However, there is incentive (though not much for my budget) to get the new drum set from Activision. Their drum set has a MIDI jack that will allow a user to use his or her own electronic drum kit, if you have one. You'll also be able to put in a second bass pedal and be able to use it in the game.

To even sweeten the pot, apprently Xbox came out with an auto-dowdloaded update for Guitar Hero: Aerosmith that allows the user to use a Rock Band guitar.

The consumer has won! Victory!

Thank god; I don't really play these games, but it always seemed really dumb that they wouldn't work together. I'm sure they're making some money with the hardware, but I would think their primary profit comes from the games. Game sales will only decrease by refusing to have compatible hardware.

how to unlock iphone 4

Hi Ok my grandma got a new desktop a few weeks ago, it came with a free trial of McAfee which I installed for her no probs (have it myself at home) She already bought a different antivirus package (Bulldog?) which I was going to install when the McAfee trial was up. Anyway my little brother has been up for xmas and since there's only a few days of the McAfee trial left thought he would install it now for her. Since then the pc goes on to the desktop and thats about it, it wont let me open anything in the controll panel and cant get on the internet. It wont even turn off so have to do it by the button! Its as if its loading up constantly but doesnt do anything at all. I'm pretty sure it's cos of the 2 antivirus software together am I right? How do I sortr it? I wanted to go into add/remove programmes and get rid of McAfee but I cant get into it? Thanks for any advice
