Grab a Guitar Hero: On Tour DS Lite and rock out

I'm sure that by now you've heard plenty about Guitar Hero: On Tour, and have likely made some sort of decision as to whether or not you're going to buy it. If you're one of the people that thinks this is the game that will finally get you to purchase a DS, then youll be happy to hear that you'll be able to purchase the game bundled with a special edition DS Lite.

Metallica to star in their own Guitar Hero title

I'm still undecided about the whole idea of focusing a Guitar Hero game around a single band. Sure, GH: Aerosmith is going to feature other great bands too, but as much as I love Aerosmith, I think I might get tired of mostly songs by the same band. Well it seems that Activision loves the idea, because it seems that they've already got another band-themed title in the works. Perhaps you've heard of a little band called Metallica?

SlashGear Week in Review – June 1st

The major news this week came out of Google's IO Conference, with the Android team unveiling the latest build of the mobile platform and a slick touchscreen handset to demonstrate it on.  We usually leave cellphone news to our sister sites PHONE Magazine and SlashPhone, but the Android handset - complete with compass-navigated Street View and slick animations - was too good to miss.  Considering the feedback over at Android Community, Google look like they've recaptured any momentum lost since MWC in February.

Rumor – Guitar Hero: World Tour pricing discovered

I'm sure that by now you've seen that Activision is hoping to reach the Rock Band crowd with their upcoming Guitar Hero: World Tour. They have a few tricks up their sleeve such as dedicated cymbal pads and custom tracks, however, one of the big questions remaining is of the price. Will it be able to compete with Rock Band in terms of retail price?

Double Range Guitar is a must-have for PS3 rockers

Back when Rock Band made its debut for the PS3, there was a huge stir about the controllers from the Guitar Hero franchise not playing nice with the game. While Harmonix tried to smooth things over by releasing a patch which would allow GH controllers to work, it never saw the light of day because of a dispute with Activision. With no resolution in sight, Ant Commandos has released their own guitar that will play on all versions of Guitar Hero and Rock Band for both the PS2 and the PS3.

SlashGear Week in Review – May 25th

After a few weeks of budget, mobile laptops grabbing the headlines, its been the turn of monstrous gaming machines to storm the limelight.  Acer announced their first serious gamer's desktop, the Aspire Predator, which is intended to take the breed out of the boutique and into mainstream computer stores.  Alienware struck back with an updated Area-51 ALX; the industry's first overclocked 4GHz Core 2 Extreme aimed to put Acer back into their place.

PS3 users to get free God of War song for GH III

Last November Xbox 360 users were able to download the Halo theme song as a free track for Guitar Hero III. This of course left PS3 users scratching their heads wondering when they were going to get a free track.

So what game theme song will you be getting? God of War. Now exactly what song this is, we're not entirely sure. However, since June 5th isn't all that far away, we'll find out soon enough.
