    Activision has confirmed the first flock of songs for Guitar Hero 5, which launches this September on PS2, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360.

    To celebrate the reveal, Activision is giving away a free song by Wolfmother from upcoming album Cosmic Egg. "Back Round" can be downloaded from the official Guitar Hero 5 website.

    I'll never get a GH game again, I'm even regretting keeping the drums now because they're just not as solid as the Rock Band ones.

    The new one is sounding just as shite as the last one.

    Likewise, Chris. I've just had GH Greatest Hits delivered from Tesco Rentals and it's just so poor compared to RB. Like comparing PES to FIFA I guess.

    Christ, the set list for GH5 is awful - to the point of me seriously considering passing on it.

    I actually enjoyed WT's set list (being a bit older than most of you ;)) ), but this is shite. And why so many live versions, they are horrible to play - especially sing due to all the adlibs.

    Screaming Tree's, Garbage and Tom Petty from that list for me are the only ones I'm remotely interested in.

    So pleased Sultans is in. Been learning it on the drums and its just an epic tune. I'd still say that list is 70% junk though, but I'm a sucker for these games so will get the solus.

    Cannot believe its out in 4 weeks too! September is gonna be an amazing month for gamers.

    I genuinely hope that nobody buys a Guitar Hero game ever again so that it will fuck off and die. It doesn't compare to Rock Band in the least, the sooner they give up the sooner Rock Band can grab the licenses to a few more songs.

    I think things have changed or will change soon.
    The labels will pay to appear on the game so the 1st brand to offer a service like iTunes will win.

    There's no doubt the drumming is more accurate to the songs and realistic (and hence more challenging...a good thing) in GH but simply in terms of the songs available and the chart features (fill and overdrive > wavy line during quiet parts and SP anyday), RB is far more enjoyable to play. I only really play GH for Everlong, Misery Business and Losing Touch, where I have a good 10-20 in my usual list I would play in rock band. Mostly DLC, but hey - GH doesnt even offer decent DLC (aside from losing touch as mentioned above)...

    Agreed the DLC in GH is woeful - I had a look at the list on Wiki yesterday just to see the last ones I brought for GH and it was back in Feb, where Rock Band will normally have at least 1 song every week or so I like and get.

    What lets GH down on the DLC front is not allowing single purchases. For example, I would have brought "The Bitter End" by Placebo (no, not THAT one!) if it wasnt in a pack.

    Before I learnt the drums, I would have said RB was superb for drumming, but it just feels so artificial. GH is my no means perfect on that score, but at least it is closer - if a ride cymbal part is coming, you know thats gonna be on Orange, toms on blue and green and if the hi-hat is open, you know its a harder hit on yellow. Its crap on RB to have open hi-hat hits on blue or green, then back to blue (in the same song) for cymbal crashes etc.

    Might be my age too, but I like a lot of the GHWT tracks - got all the Eagles stuff, Wings, Doors, Hendrix etc... the tracklistings on all these games are down to personal taste though.

    Old thread I know, but I'm also quite disappointed with this years song selection. I'm happy with a few choices (the last 15 ones in particular). However, I will still get the game because I cannot get Rock band here in Thailand.

    Does anyone know if the old drums that I have from World Tour will work on this new one? (stupid question I know!)

    Ive played the drums for 2 years and I agree that GH feels better with the ride...but at the end of the day...anything you are hitting just goes thud and to me for the purposes of gaming, adding the ride did very little for the overall experience. The reason we all play is just to feel some rythym, and that comes across in both games regardless of what pad you hit, but moreso in RB simply because I prefer the songs.

    That said, there is not one song in rock band that I will really struggle on. Run to the hills is nowhere near as difficult as common opinion says - a lot of RB/GH drummers are amateurs and struggle on speedy songs, so it got a nasty reputation. The only vaguely difficult songs are smooth criminal, move along (all american rejects) and parts of we wont get fooled again.

    Contrast that with GH and it throws up the difficulty, all of the tool songs are insane, as well as songs like scream aim fire etc. which is nice, because if the game isnt challenging its as boring as bats piss.

    The only reason I prefer RB is the chart structure - and i actually like having open hats on blue or green - it requires you to actually listen to the song and adjust. On GH people just keep hitting the yellow cymbal regardless and most are oblivious that open hats even exist...

    'Most' tracks from World Tour, Smash Hits and DLC will be importable into GH5.

    Thank Jebus!

    Activision is offering a free copy of Guitar Hero: Van Halen to anyone pre-ordering Guitar Hero 5.

    There is some small print. This is a limited-time offer supported locally by only Play.com and Amazon.co.uk. And the GH5 website links go only to Xbox 360 guitar-plus-game bundles.

    http://www.play.com/Games/Xbox360/4-/9973175/Guitar-Hero-5/Product.html

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Guitar-Hero..._4?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1247493415&sr=8-4


    Weirdly, neither retailer mentions the deal.

    Guitar Hero: Van Halen won't be out in Europe until next year, although North Americans can buy the game three days before Christmas. But will there be any shelf space next to Turbo Man?

    This offer is in stark contrast to recent pricing strategies by Activision, which have seen the SRP of Modern Warfare upped to £55, and copies of DJ Hero-plus-turntable or Tony Hawk-plus-skateboard costing over £100.

    So they've realised nobody wants to buy a new Guitar Hero game and that their tracklist is absolute shite then.
