Guitar Hero: World Tour Fact Sheet and Box Art

by Hassan AhmedSeptember 13, 2008


Before anybody flips out about the thing at the end of the fact sheet saying Battle of the Bands may mean an additional subscription, don’t worry. All that means is if you normally have to pay to play an online game (like for Xbox Live), then you would have to pay for that still. It does NOT mean you have to pay to play online if you have a Wii.

    @goodgame: Thanks for pointing that out. That fact sheet is regarding the game only version. The full band kit does come with everything you need (except Wii Remotes of course). I’m going to fix the press release, thanks.

    Any word on the expected price? Really looking forward to this… been boycotting RockBand because of their unacceptable lazyness with online content.
