In a recent audio interview with Ted Lang–Producer for Guitar Hero II, XBL Radio fills us in on what we can expect from the 360 version of GH2. While Microsoft's rendition of the rockin' title is rolled up with exclusives like Download Content and Leaderboards, the most obvious and expected feature has been left behind.
"The main thing is, Microsoft holds on tightly
to their patented wireless technology."
Ted Lang, Guitar Hero Producer, RedOctane
It seems like Microsoft, well-known for reaching out and listening to the gaming community, is holding out on what the gamers want this time around. Many GH fans would be happy to pay the premium price for a wireless guitar, yet they won't have one to buy at launch. Maybe Ted was worried it would turn out like the wireless headset? In that case… nice move!
