New Guitar Hero game gets new controllers
Activision's upcoming Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock will get a new set of guitar controllers with replaceable bodies. Unlike the current designs, where some of the circuitry is in the body and impossible to replace, all of the electronics are now in the fretboard and neck. The decision lets Activision offer replaceable bodies, including an exclusive to GameStop, without having to sell a completely new and more expensive instrument.
The new design will reach the PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 versions of the game. None have prices so far, but Warriors of Rock is due to ship later this year and should ship by September. [via Gizmodo]
