Despite promises to the contrary, the PlayStation 3 Guitar Hero: World Tour
drum set doesn't seem to be working with Rock Band 1
. Many users on the RB
forums have noticed that the game is recognizing the wireless set as a microphone, and unfortunately, the mic isn't being recognized as a beat box receptor.
A Harmonix developer has chimed in
to say, "We are definitely looking into this. We'll keep you posted on updates as soon as more info is available." Sony had previously said
there would be universal instrument-rhythm game compatibility. The Xbox 360 drum sets seem to work with each respective game. We're working to independently confirm compatibility as we fill in the blanks to our Instrument Compatibility Matrix
