“Backstage with Guitar Hero” Launches Tomorrow in PlayStation Home

Locust_Star's Avatar Posted by PlayStation Home Community Manager

The time has come for all of you virtual rock stars to get your butts into PlayStation Home and show off your sickest riffs and slickest licks. That’s right – on Thursday, March 26th, Activision is launching their first PlayStation Home space to support their hit franchise – Guitar Hero. And you’re invited to the launch party!

Guitar Hero PlayStation Home Space 7

The event will take place in the “Backstage with Guitar Hero” space where players will be able to rock out on their PLAYSTATION 3 controllers to a lightning-fast finger rock-style interactive mini-game. In this mind-boggling party game of music, memory, and reflexes, players are challenged to follow the lead of a guitarist by matching an ever-increasing color and sound pattern. With each turn a new note is added to the tune, and when a player misses a note they are knocked out of the game until only one player is left standing. A local leaderboard captures the highest scores in real time so the true champion gets their due props and the losers are left to practice their chops in shame.

On Friday, March 27th, between the hours of 12:00pm and 5:00pm PT (3:00pm and 8:00pm EST) the PlayStation Home Community Management team will be visiting the new Guitar Hero game space each hour on the hour and awarding the user with the current high score a special prize. So come out and show us your godly guitar skills. Who knows – you might just emerge the new virtual rock star of PlayStation Home

I rather buy Rock Band 2 than any GH games. Why invest alot when you can just buy awesome tracks of ur choosing which are backwards and forward compatible?

P.S. Guess you wasn’t kidding when you said we’d have a major content update. Thanks so much for you and CydoniaX’s hard work.

Conrad_Max said:

I believe this is something that some people were asking for with no response from the Home Managers. Then, out of the blue, BANG! We get hit with an unexpected game space. Great job, everyone. And, great job to Locust_Star for being able to keep a secret. Definitely something I will be looking into and, perhaps, jamming in.

GamerMoney said:

Slipping_halo said:

Neil said:
