As it turns out, the countless hours that I spent playing Guitar Hero shirtless on my leather couch was only validating EA’s and Harmonix’s proof-of-concept for something much bigger: Rock Band.
The PS3 (and x360) game is set to amalgamate the most addictive interactive games on this planet, earth (i.e. Guitar Hero and Karaoke Revolution.)
Say “good-bye” to your existing social life - save, of course, for the three friends you choose to form your rock allegiance with. One is to be pitted behind the “skins” of a virtual drum-set, while the other two compliment your singing-that-only-a-mother-could-love on the bass and lead guitars.
Oh yeah, and the hype for this game is so big, I almost forgot to mention the release of Guitar Hero III this week, w00t!
