Question Rock Band 2 or Guitar Hero World Tour (and Beatles)

I've seen the price dropping lately on both RB2 and Guitar Hero WT. It looks like the new Beatles Rock band will also work with guitar hero sets. What i am asking is, what do people like better? I assume the GH set, since there is the metallic game, the upcoming van halen game, and the other guitar hero games that are coming out. The Rock Band seems like it would be more expensive in the long run with all the different downloads.

Any opinions?

Thanks!

I would recommend Rock Band 2 and GH: Metallica. Instruments are compatible between the two, and the RB2 drums are better. I would highly recommend against World Tour... inferior game with inferior downloads. RB2 owns. GH: M also owns.

I have them all but spend almost all my time playing Rock Band 2 and GH: Metallica. The songs in Metallica are my favorites but for everything else RB2 is the best.

Get anything as long as it's Rock Band 2. The DLC comparison alone is no contest.

Go with Rock Band 2. The only reason and I literally mean the ONLY reason that World Tour is better, is because "The Touch" by Stan Bush is on their DLC thingy.

Yep the RB2 DLC totally stomps the GH DLC. Heck I don't even know the last time i played GH:WT.

Guitar Hero World Tour Hands down. The setlist is better and it sold more copies so you will find more people playing it online. If you are a person that likes alot of good DLC content then you should go with Rockband because most of GHWT DLC sucks.

I also would recommend going with Rock Band 2 (and subsequently the Beatles) if you're the sort that enjoys a variety of music and a good party game. If you're a more competitive gamer that values leaderboards, accomplishments, and bragging rights on songs that are made difficult simply for the sake of being difficult with little fidelity or parity with the original song, go with Guitar Hero: World Tour. Basically, GHWT is is aimed primarily at hardcore, competitive gaming. Rock Band is for everyone else that just wants to enjoy music games.

They're two different audiences, so just figure out which one you belong to.

thanks for all of the quick replys. I just saw on the best buy website, they will have a beatles rock band special edition. It doesn't say if the included instruments are the same as RB 2. The set is $140, so it would be a cheaper way to go.

If it's for a Beatles set, then it *should* be the new instruments that are replicas of the Beatles own favorite guitars and drum. As far as I know the Beatles game isn't supposed to come with stock RB2 instruments.
