Plastic instrument rivalry news now, with Stephen Totilo of MTV Multiplayer
confirming that the upcoming Xbox 360 version of Guitar Hero: World Tour
will happily work with non-Guitar Hero
peripherals – including those from Harmonix's first Rock Band
game. The fate of Rock Band 2
's instruments has yet to be decided – they haven't become available for testing just yet.
We're happy to see Activision tear down this wailing wall, even though we'll have to tweak our peripheral compatibility matrix
for the umpteenth time. We're not quite sure how many an "ump" is, but we're thinking it's somewhere in the region of 119.
