Guitar Hero 360 Effects Pedal Confirmed

Praise be to the Circuit City's and Wal-Mart's of the world as Guitar Hero II for the Xbox 360 has arrived a few, scant days early on Mount Joystiq. What? You actually go to a game store to buy your games? You should probably stop doing that. After shredding it up like only nerds with tiny, plastic toy guitars can, we actually took a look at the instruction manual, curious as to any information regarding the mystery port found at the base of the X-Plorer.

The story is too old to be commented.

sorry but could someone tell me what the pedal does?

A pedal is basically a "switch" to turn on a bunch of potential "filters" of the guitar sound as it comes out of an electric guitar to the amp.

Let's say that for the chorus of a song you want the guitar to have a more metallic sound or an echo effect, you'd hit the pedal with your foot for those chords you want to be run through the filter...since both hands are a little too busy to hit a switch somewhere. ;)

ok :) thanks very much :)

So in terms of guitar hero, the idea is that you will have to changed effect at different parts of the song im guessing.

I just hope they will send additional guitars to market.

Now if they just added groupies, the whole Guitar Hero package would be totally realistic ...

but after a couple of beer they would only be a distraction

Im sure that they are going to implement it s that you have to stomp the stomp box whenever and effect is changed in a song: eg going from clean to distortion, when a pahser or such is turned on etc. I've said it before though, I'll say it again you are better off just buying a cheap ibanez or epiphone and a cheap pratice amp and learning to really play the guitar. With a little practice even some of the songs in this game can be suprisingly easy to play in real life.

I myslef play the guitar...and you are probably right...but its a bit of fun.... :) nothing too serious.
