Default Activision Announces GH: Greatest Hits

I have no comment.

Activision will squeeze more cash from the stone that is Guitar Hero with Guitar Hero:Greatest Hits. No, not Modern Hits. This is the ultimate cash-in, a "best of" compilation for Guitar Hero World Tour.

Mike Griffith, president and CEO of Activision Publishing, announced the Greatest Hits repackaging during today's quarterly earnings call, a collection it plans to ship this year for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii.

Guitar Hero: Greatest Hits will feature favorites from previous entries Guitar Hero, Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s, Guitar Hero II, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, etc. updated for full band play, which Activision introduced with World Tour. While to you that may mean playing "Through the Fire and the Flames" on drums, to me it means percussion duties on A Flock of Seagulls "I Ran."

Further details weren't provided, but we're sure that Activision's taking requests.

At least Rock Band let you rip 90% of the Rock Band 1 songs to the hard drive to let you pay in Rock Band 2. This is just silly.

It kinda is, although I'd like for some of the Guitar Hero 1 songs to actually get Master tracks. Do I really need to hear Cochise and Take Me Out and all those songs with crappy covers?

Well to a certain degree this has been happening on Rock Band already, though not in anything so overt as a greatest hits collection. Guitar Hero 1 standby "More Than A Feeling" is already available as a master track original in a Boston collection, and there are other tracks as well, though that's the first and only one that immediately comes to mind right now.

Of course, the nice thing is, as DLC you can buy only the song you want, not an entire disc just to get it.

I can't say i'm terribly excited about another Guitar Hero. I still need to play World Tour.
