Yesterday the Beatles made an appearance at the E3 gaming event and hyped up The Beatles: Rock Band, but they will find themselves competing against Activision Blizzard’s Guitar Hero 5. The advantage that the Guitar Hero franchise has over Rock Band is a release date that is one week before. The exact date of Guitar Hero 5’s release is September 1.
Guitar Hero 5 will be available on the XBox 360, the Sony Playstation 2 and Playstation 3, and the Nintendo Wii. Some of the songs on the game include Blue Orchid (The White Stripes), Sympathy for the Devil (The Rolling Stones), All Along the Watchtower (Bob Dylan), and Ring of Fire (Johnny Cash).
The instruments for the game include a mic, guitars, drums, and the bass. Any combination of the instruments can be used at once. Before there was a one-instrument per player restriction.
