Rock band vs Guitar Hero

It’s the new Mario vs Sonic and not the new Olympics game*, I mean classic fucking Mario Vs Sonic like: Super Mario World vs Sonic 2 (ah those were the days)

Well for those of you who don’t know Rock band is and online version of Guitar hero with loads of new attachments to play all the different sections, guitar, bass/rhythm, drums, and singing. Recently it was delayed (RE: Kotaku) till 2008, and I found myself not caring, and in fact scrolling slightly further up the page to check on the Guitar hero 3 updates. Now as with all computer games “versus” situations there will be split factions i.e. in this case Guitar hero fanboys and Rock band fanboys. Right now I think I’m sitting on the Guitar hero fanboy side, purely because guitar her takes itself as a game, Rock band seems like it is trying to be a grown up sophisticated version of Guitar hero, which is slightly preposterous given that you are using a toy guitar…

Reasons Rock Band will fail:
- Too much money on gimmicky peripherals
