Granted, that effort probably stems from it no longer having the peripheral-based rhythm action market to itself. With the series playing catch-up to EA's expansion from guitar to band simulation though, it seems fitting that Guitar Hero has returned not just to confront the 'anything you can do it, I can do better' adage, but also do all the stuff that Rock Band isn't doing on the Wii."
