November 9, 2005 Now we don’t often do games but this was worth a mention. This is a new game we think will be HUGE, partly because the installed base of PlayStation2 is close to 100 million units, and partly because there are few boys on the planet who haven't dreamt at some point about becoming one of the high priests of the 21st century, the guitar hero! Launched today across America the rock 'n roll guitar video game is called Guitar Hero and is exclusive to the PlayStation2. Guitar Hero combines addictive game play with some of the greatest rock songs of all-time and lets gamers experience the thrill and excitement of being a rock star without leaving home! By pressing down on the fret buttons of a specially designed guitar controller, gamers play notes and chords by strumming in time on a "strum bar" representing the strings of an electric guitar. Guitar Hero features hits spanning all the facets of rock music, from classic rock to metal including tracks made famous by such legendary artists as Boston, Red Hot Chili Peppers, David Bowie, Sum 41, Ozzy Osbourne, Audioslave, White Zombie, Franz Ferdinand and The Ramones.
