Activision’s Senior Director of Product Management, Tyler Michaud, has told GameInformer that Guitar Hero Live‘s GHTV will launch with hundreds of songs. “At a minimum, there will be hundreds at launch on day one in GHTV alone,” he said.
Hundreds? Better question is what are they?
They're DLC ;p
Oh but I guess everyone is ok with the THOUSANDS of songs EA and Harmonix put out for DLC in Rock Band that you need to pay like 2 to 3 dollars for EACH. We're perfectly ok with that, but when Activision tries to do the same for Guitar Hero, all in a single day which is wonderful news, people flip out? Get real. The only way to get that many songs is to pay extra. You cannot make a 60 dollar video game with all of that and expect to make money. But screw logic because evil greedy corporations.
over the course of 4 games over a decade with a way to keep them ? oh yeah . Not to mention the amounts of time they added free content , and the way they made it work it to actually buy albums and catalogues over individual songs ? Yes
Please . Activision couldnt even be bothered to try keeping songs from one game to the next . And they didnt have the whole "i'm reinventing the whole concept" excuse they got this time around . At every turn RB and Harmonix forced their hands over keeping old songs , material compatibilities , stop using covers instead of actual songs and remasters , features to add , instruments etc ...
40 songs on the retail copy, hundreds in DLC...
I don't know how it will work, but they said GHTV will be free... I still think there is a catch because it's Activision, but if it's true, it's awesome!
@pecorre Free (in small print- paid members only).
@pecorre yeah that seems good :) I hope you can pick whatever songs you want to play though, not just some songs of the week type thing lol I really don't like the way they're just focusing on the guitar, I mean, why have a party game without the Mics, Drumms? Kinda misses the point a bit.
If you take a look on the web site, there is already a link for the songs on Spotify. I could easily see a patership for GTTV. I would not be surprised if you have a basic version where you can play a limited number of songs each days or you can play a song if you watch an add.
i seen this priced at99$ for all systems forget that... ill just buy the old version havnt played since part 2 n been kinda wanting to but not for 99
$99 dollars. Game + new guitar. Not a terrible deal.
Not bad at all for the game and guitar if true. I'm still expecting it to be around $150.00 or so for the combo.
well now t hat you worded it like that..... lol
I hope for ramstein, kizz etc etc but ill get the game anyways last game I played was guitar hero 3
