Xbox World 360 writes: "When developer Travis Chen hacked the Guitar Hero controller and created a PC synthesiser, little did he know he was spearheading a revolution. Ironically, his efforts were poured into a Harmonix game; a company whose game he's about to bury. Rock Band, we're sorry to say, is finished.
Just look at the drums. Rock Band's has four pads with loud, plastic covers and a flimsy pedal. GH's has three pads and two high-hats, all coated with rubber to dampen any unwanted noise. The high hats are 'flappy', like cymbals, and there's still a pedal for that extra layer of complexity. All considered, the peripheral gives Rock Band's the runaround."
