Have they clarified what custom user made tracks means? Does that mean someone can put their own music up? Or the ability to basically throw any song on GH? I just wonder what kind of legal mess that could make if you finally had the ability to play any song you wanted.

Well its basically messing around with the instruments to record songs, no vocals though, and then sharing them with your friends.

Spoiler


years ahead of its time.

For the custom tracks by "messing around with the instruments" does that mean there are prerecorded sounds and it just plays back depending on what you hit or can you make your own note chart for songs? Custom songs do sound awesome but i have a feeling its going to be a disappointment just like DLC was for GH.

ps: the gh4 drumset highhat looks way too high and to the right. The highhat seems to be above the snare which i can't imagine being fun to play.

I love it when people bring up the Japanese roots of music games .:lol:

I bet the songs on those games are total shit .:applause:

I can't wait to hear that the Van Halen song is not a Van Hagar track .

What the Fuck is ''so jokes''?

And no to the Rock Band thing. RB only has five buttons w/ the pedal included.

The details are just multi-platfrom at the moment though.

Not that I care, as I like multiple threads on games rather than the dumbass long catch all threads you usually merge everything into....

I already have one Playskool-lookin' drumset taking up space...this game is going to have the best tracklist ever, in addition to more reasonably priced DLC for me to even give it a second thought.

It will have to have solid guitar only game play, and be sold in a game only version, for me to bother.

I skipped rock band just because I had no interest in the microphone or in having the Playskook drum set clutter up the house.

Lame.

I'm sure Guitar Hero V will be the game that introduces the latest innovation of "vocals" :roll:

I don't understand why a game entitled "Guitar Hero" should - in any way - incorporate drums. To me, the more they try to be like Rock Band and compete with that market of gamers, the more they fail at being a unique game.

They pretty much were already at the point they couldn't be unique. If it was just guitar, it would just be new songs and maybe some more useless online features (game's only fun in local multiplayer IMO).

I'd be fine with that since I have no interest in vocals or other instruments. But I'm not going to say doing so would have made them more "unique." GH was just another of the yearly "shit out a 'sequel' and make more money" games.

Right. I meant to insinuate that the Guitar Hero series was already on the downward slope when it came to unique features, but this idea seems to drive it straight into the ground.

What's so bad about Guitar Hero ?

It's not unlike the treatment Nintendo gives their games , except more than once a generation .

Guistar Hero Band! I can't wait. I am holding reservations on if I need more just taking up space in my room. At least my two guitars fit in one bag and can go in a corner. I don't have corners big enough for thos drums! If my guitars work with it, I will get the disc only and be happy with that.

Well IIRC there was a handful of American songs on each of these games, most people in the US haven't played these games enough to judge them. I've probably tried all these Bemani games once or twice since theres an arcade around here that carries one of each machine. The point of showing that particular machine is that GHIV basically went with Drum Mania's setup. I don't know if its a good or bad thing yet but I'm leaning on bad just because I'd have to buy another drum set if I choose to participate. :bomb:

They're just not needed yearly. I'd rather just see better DLC support then I could just pick and choose what songs I want, rather than having to shell our $60 a year for a "sequel" with only a handful of songs I want to play.

It's more comparable to the EA sports games which come out each year and usually add little more than new rosters.

It's been years since I played Drum Mania, but it seems to me it had some pretty popular songs at the time. I know for a fact that it has Possum Kingdom because that's the song I failed miserably at.

As for the drums, it looks like my DTXplorer kit at home, not sure I need more shit taking up space.

Let's not forget that it needs to be priced reasonably - which, given how Activision jacked up the price when going from GH to GH2, and from GH2 to GH3, let alone the price of DLC, won't be the case.

There's no way this will launch below $200. Hell, I bet they'll go $250 and include two guitars.

This game better have all that, all Kane mentioned, and do my laundry for me before I give it a second thought. The only band name I've seen associated with the game so far that has piqued my interest is Van Halen, and even that isn't that big a deal for me.

EDIT: Let us not forget that this series is 4 weeks away from GUITAR HERO AEROSMITH. This whole series has already Tony Hawk'd itself into irrelevance.

I can't fit any more shit into my room thanks to the RB drum set, looks like I'll pass on this unless the track list is stupid good.

Reason why I haven't bought Rock Band is because of the noisy the drums, if GH IV Drums are quieter then RB then it might be one of the reasons I'll buy it. Also the price, If activision is smart they'll release the game (full kit) at $150.

If you read the linked thumbnail in the OP, they state that making them quiet is one of their main areas of focus.

i think Red Octane and Harmonix should just kiss and make up already, and then they could work together and create just one AWESOME Rock Band type game with one set of instruments. Only in a perfect world...

i have guitar hero 3 for 360 and rock band but i don't think i will be buying GHIV because i already have the Rock Band instruments taking up space in my room. this war is getting rediculous. i'll probably just end up buying the game only version for the guitar part. because i agree with most people that a game called GUITAR Hero does not need other instruments like the drums and vocals and such

I like it how almost every paragraph there's gotta be something thats cutting Rock Band or Harmonix down.

And with Activision's record on having compatible controllers... Doesn't give good hope to have these playable on RB or RB2 (whenever that comes out).

Guitar Hero died with GHII. Its just a name with alot of money behind it and trying to stifle the company that still gives a damn about music.

You know if they want to sell more drumsets, they should go ahead and make it work with RB. Just phase out one of the cymbals. I know they obviously don't want the RB instruments to work with their game but why not cut into the competition a bit.
