We already knew this. Activision has said they are bringing Guitar Hero to "all major platforms" and 360 happens to be a major platform.

Affirmation's always good. I'm happy for you guys; I have a couple of friends in the opposite camp of the "console wars" who will finally get to play this game at home. I'm glad that songs can be downloaded; I always felt that if any game was destined for microtransactions, this was it.

I still hope that somewhere down the line (although it'd probably kill sales, and be unlikely), they'll release something that allows you to import your own mp3s into the game and create "tabs" for them (guitar players'll know what I'm talking about) that can be saved, or even uploaded to a community site or something. THAT'D be awesome.

I guess 360 gamers can now ROCK HARD!

Can anyone think of a way to "fix" the cool/lame system? As far as I can tell, the same idiots vote lame just to make an article look bad.

How in God's name is anything in this news lame, I though? Then I read the posts of the people that voted lame and quicly noticed I was looking at _complete_ PS3 fans with no open mind and an ovious inferiority complex when it comes to the 360.

I mean, who the hell chooses the name "PS3OWNESXBOX360?" and why should his "lame" vote on a 360 news article even be taken into consideration?

.... you will always have the pre-pubesent and the adult retards that do it just to be ... well ... fuk-tards.

I am glad this game is coming. This games is a FRIGGEN HOOT with buds and beers.

Sadly they exist :(. I'm a PS fan first, but try to remain open-minded. I have to admit it sucks when you want to talk about a game and the first five posts are about how horrible it is, and how it's not "worth $600 :\. I spend every day on the PS3 boards hearing how I'm blind, retarded, and "wasting my money." Meh

Anyways, at E3, they'd mentioned that playing online co-op wouldn't work, due to the latency and all (heck, when I tried to hook it up to the 1080p in the basement, it was horrible). But I wonder if there will be some way to, I don't know, play with friends still; if not together, then alternating. I wish online play would work cross-platform :(


It's A Crime That There's No Sleeping Dogs 2 Yet

Huzaifah from eXputer: "Sleeping Dogs from the early 2010s is one of the best open-world games out there but in dire need of a resurgence."

I agree, I consider the first one a cult classic already

You say "yet" as if it's even possible anymore. United Front Games is gone, along with anyone that made this game what it is

That’s what happens when games sell poorly. And I’ve seen people wonder why people cry when a game sells badly… this is your answer.

Majority of the time it's true but if a company/publisher is big (in terms of money), they can take a hit or 2. e.g. I am not worried about Rebirth sales as Square will make Remake 3 anyway but if FF 17 doesn't sell then Square might need to look for alternative. <-- my humble opinion

Doesn’t Microsoft own the IP now since they acquired Activision?

Sleeping Dogs was a sleeper hit back then. It was fantastic. It actually still is. Would love a sequel to this, or at least a revive of True Crime series.


Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-earth II - PC Wore it Better

Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-earth II was an intriguing and unique RTS title, that sadly suffered in its console port.

Was just thinking about this game and wishing I had a way to revisit it. The way EA scrubs these titles from existence once their licensing runs out is horrid.

Michiel19893h ago

there is a client made by modders and it also works online.

kevco333h ago

Indeed. The game can still be played online on PC.

Xbox 360 players, though? Bang outta luck.
