Ah, it's finally coming. Still free I hope? Or maybe they'll make you buy a Transformers peripheral in order to play it...

Hm, it won't be free according to the EU PSN blog:

Guitar Hero: World Tour
Build your song collection further with this additional track:
PEGI 12+

‘The Touch’ by Stan Bush (£1.59/€1.99)
http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2009/...onstoreupdate/

[edit]
Hm, got it for free...
Maybe a timed free thing...

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I just grabbed it and it was free as well.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Marketplace didn't say "free for gold members only". Oh well, I got it for free anyway.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

After playing RB2 for so long GH's timing feels a bit "off"...
Might be the larger jewels/window for strumming...
Same goes for some of the placement of the strums/notes...

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I was a big Guitar Hero II and III guy, but after jumping on the Rock Band wagon, it was really hard for me to get back into GH. A lot of it probably has to do with their horrible charting, but it just feels different. Not really interested in getting GH: World Tour or GH 5 or GH: Van Halen (I have a feeling they're going to kill the market with all their flooding), especially since I've spent a billion dollars on Rock Band downloads. I was all set to jump over GH: Aerosmith too, since I could get it for so cheap, but then I decided at the last minute that I'd probably never play it.

But The Beatles Rock Band interests me.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Neversoft definitly made some weird choices with their charting...
There are some songs that have strums where there is none in the song...

I am all over this.

I also got "The Touch" for GH. It's pretty good, but definitely a new recording (it even says 2007 or some such when the track title comes up). For free, I'm not gonna complain, and it's a hilarious song still anyway. My friends will love that next time they're over to play.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Yeah, it's not the cheesy 80's version of the animated Transformers movie...
Ah well, as you said, it's free...

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I have the 2007 version on my iPod (Stan Bush was giving it away for free at some point) and I like the recording and it is just a better recorded version of the 80s "classic".
