Guitar Hero 5 to Launch With New Drum Kit?

54 second read


Blurry images have been floating around the internet purporting to be leaked pictures of Guitar Hero 5’s new drum peripheral. Yes, another one. The new set appears to be an odd amalgamation of the current World tour set and the Rock Band drums. Controls have been moved to the front of the kit, the odd cymbal pads have been replaced with full, round cymbals – and most importantly the bass pedal appears to be tethered to a bar at the base, hopefully removing the pedal creep that the current GH drums succumb to.

While I rather enjoy music rhythm games, the deluge of fake plastic instruments since the genre’s proliferation is rapidly reaching saturation; I don’t think I have any space left in my house for more extraneous periphery. Despite the World Tour drum kit’s flaws it’s still more than sufficient – which has me hoping that these rumours of a redesign are just that – rumours.

    I’m sure they’ll be doing new kit. Why not take advantage of new software to sell high margin hardware. But the upside is that I’m 99% sure the WT kit will still work on GH5, which is all I need.

    If it’s real, it’ll no doubt be compatible.

    The user backlash that would result from incompatibility would scare Goliath – and gamer goodwill towards Activision is already dissipating FAST.

    Don’t worry guys.. Guitar hero 3 came out with a new guitar that wasn’t at all necessary.. every GH will come out with new instruments.. doesn’t mean you have to buy them… even Aerosmith had its own guitar…
