“Backstage with Guitar Hero” Launches Tomorrow in PlayStation Home

Locust_Star's Avatar + Posted by Locust_Star on Mar 25, 2009 // 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

unfortunately all my friends prefer rock band, including myself, and would much rather see a Rock Band space in Home Beta. Oh well, its a start at least. Hopefully a Rock Band space will be in the near future

XMB XMB XMB XMB XMB I’d rather have over anything else right now Sure the Spaces are cool but without our own Djing Clubs etc HOME just plains sucks…And why can’t you guys bring over from Japan the NAMCO ARCADES! THE AMERICAN VERSION IS LAME I DO LIKE HOWEVER ICE BREAKER BUT THE REST FLUSH IT DOWN THE TOILET! WE NEED MORE STUFF IN HOME TO DO BESIDES YOUR EXCUSES WITH THE HB OR Xii…Really Sony this is sad that you can’t keep up with our demands..=(

The GH space looks pretty good, wasn’t able to play the mini game. Overall pretty nice. Home has done quite a bit as of late with increasing the areas to roam.

Would like to see more to do on home, although bowling is really addictive. Anywhere to leave suggestions for content for Home? Been looking around and haven’t seen anyplace to do so.

Bamabelle60, they’re going to let us put videos on it, just wait, but they’re only going to be allowed from Google Videos and Youtube plus sites like that, I’m not sure about Daily Motion or sites like that as the contract is with Google as Google owns YouTube remember, hope you’re happy with my answer.
