Rampant Speculation: What's Up With Guitar Hero 5 Wii?

Posted by Jon Wahlgren

Official Twitter feed teases rumored "amazing new features."

Acticivision's Guitar Hero franchise has gotten some sweet love on Wii; Legends of Rock took the series online in a surprisingly solid way, and World Tour had it's own Mii-enabled mode and brought downloadable content as well, something still not widely done on the system.

Now, with the fifth entry set to drop on Sept. 1 in the U.S., the official Guitar Hero Twitter feed is going all Wii rumor-crazy.

WOW Wii!!! Rumor is that there’s going to be some amazing new features for #GuitarHero on the #Nintendo #Wii – What could they be?

Care to wager a guess?

Wii Motion Plus drumming. You won't even need the drum kit. Just hit where the imaginary drum would be.

Maybe something that implements M+ and allows the M+ adapter to be used in the guitar.

It'll come packed with an acoustic guitar and some tablature. Now you can be a TRUE guitar hero. Awesome!

Bleh. I do just fine with Rock Band 2. It does everything I want and it has an ever-increasing music catalog. I really don't see a need for any other game of its type.

@2. Edwin
Would be so sweet.

@7. Pegasus
I'm not sure if this was true - but my main motivation for the new GH is that you can have multiple people playing the same instrument (ie: 3 lead guitars). I'm not sure why they didn't incorporate this at GH2 as it always spurs quarrels on who gets to play who. Plus, they could always have achievements/career modes to force a full band so that the bass player isn't forgotten

3 lead guitar co-op? 3 drum sets? What's the effing point? Seriously, all I notice is silly unnecessary features being added to Guitar Hero, while instead of properly updating their games' online music catalog Activision needs a new game for pretty much everything. It's getting beyond stupid now, not to mention the increasingly ridiculous amount of blatant advertising displayed in those games. No, thanks.

Wii Vitality sensor. If you do a line of coke before the game it will blur the screen according to your heart rate for that true rock experience.

Actually some has been confirmed already. Mii mode and GH Tunes confirmed. NO FRIEND CODES, and some other things I can't remember right now. It's on Gonintendo.

Activision can try as hard as they want, but they just won't be able to win me over The Beatles: Rock Band.

This may end up being good. However, I just picked up RockBand 2 because of The Beatles.




They are ramping up the online. A lot. But I dont buy GH since now it feels a little too milked and exploited to me. Rock Band is much better. Mostly due to its deeper World Tour mode. Besides, doesnt it annoy anyone who only has a guitar and their friends come over and the only thing they want to do is play guitar hero? Im tired of it. Now to finiish my semi-rant, I will treat you all with a random word: broccoli.

Is it's new feture going to be a promise of no more sequels? I don't want to have to own several copies of the 'exact' same game just to play certain songs that I want. How about the make a game thats compatable with all the available dlc and just work on pumping out more dlc...
