Default Guitar Hero 4 rumors released

http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/873/873710p1.html

Pretty much, they are trying to turn Guitar Hero into Rock Band minus the vocals. Which isn't too bad. I didn't really like Rock Band too much. The instrument controllers broke too easily and I didn't really like the song list and the songs were also too easy. In Guitar Hero 3, I've 5 starred everything (including DLC) except for Through the Fire and Flames and Devil Went Down to Georgia so Rock Band guitar puts me to sleep. Hopefully GH4 will still have the difficulty that GH3 had.

i don't really care for the drums, but the article mentions a song creator feature. if not overly complicated, that could kick some serious ass.

i wish they would start getting the songlist ready. i'm sure they have an idea, but i'd like them to start confirming songs.

but as long as they keep releasing songs on xbl i'll be happy until gh4 comes out.

I'm sure there will be more GH3 DLC before GH4 comes out because GH: Aerosmith will not have any DLC.

The song creator seems like a good idea. Also, I heard that 4 of the confirmed bands are Linkin Park, Sublime, The Eagles, and Van Halen.

The songs from these bands I'm hoping for:

Eagles: Hotel California.... That would be such a fun song to play.

Van Halen: Eruption... I hope so... It should be GH4's Through the Fire and Flames or Jordan. Only problem is that it's a really short song. I liked Through the Fire and Flames not because of the difficulty, but because it was a long song. Also, I doubt it would be in the game because GH4 is pretty much like rock band and the entire song of Eruption is a Guitar Solo. I'm sure GH4 will come up with something equally crazy for the Guitar, Drums, and bass/rhythm Guitar

have you played the linkin park "no more sorrow" that's available on the xbl marketplace? its pretty boring and easy. so i'm not all that thrilled that linkin park is going to be on it.

some of the songs/artists i'm hoping for include:

black stone cherry (newer band, not well known yet but look 'em up... any of their songs would be fun)
dream theater
hellyeah- you wouldn't know
pantera- walk
prince
ram jam- black betty (now this could be a difficult and fun song)
testament

Yea.. That song is boring. Too easy, I FC'ed it on expert. Hopefully they will have Disturbed, Dragonforce, A7X, In Flames, Matallica, Dope, Slayer(Even though I don't like them,I like a challenge), Eric Johnson, Megadeth, Dethklok. Since this will have to do with an entire band, I can't wait to see what they use as the "impossible" song (Like TTFAF for GH3, Jordan for GH2).

we were discussing this last night at my buddy's apt.

GH4 IS rock band, they stole the idea and are adding music and 2 extra drums, it's a blatant rip off, barely innovative at all

Blatant rip off? Maybe, but what did you call it when Rockband came out? Didnt they steal the whole idea from Guitar Hero in the first place?

i call it a better game that made guitar hero obsolete. they added 2 instruments that made the game what it is

GH4 added onto an instrument because they can't compete with rock band otherwise

seriously, why buy guitar hero anymore when you can buy 3 games in 1 with rockband AND never EVER have to buy a sequel again?

Actually, both GH and RB are ripoffs from Konami's Bemani games (GuitarFreaks, DrumMania, Karaoke Revolution). So don't blame each other. Just play and have fun.

Harmonix -- rockband creators -- developed the all GH games until GH3; furthermore, the Harmonix dev. team was involved in the development of Karaoke Revolution. Rockband didn't really steal anything from guitar hero. Instead they were bullied by Activision after the acquisition of Red Octane(publisher). Why include Harmonix when Activision has their own resources? A buy-out followed and neversoft is now responsible for GH gaming.

Can't wait for it to come out =D.

I'd like songs by Metallica, Bullet for My Valentine, Alter bridge, Avenged Sevenfold and Atreyu on there.
