Having never played Guitar Hero I was nervous as I stepped into the hotel room which housed the Guitar Hero Live Demo. By the end of the day I was convinced I could be a Rock Star! With Guitar Hero Live the experience was honestly amazing! The new guitar is more touch intuitive. You can hold the middle lever up or down depending on the direction the note is facing of which the notes are color coordinated.
The online experience I played briefly blew me away. You’re playing against live players on one song in a music video that performs seamlessly! Feeling tired? Drop the guitar and the video keeps going! Almost like a music streaming service! So much more in store for you guys. Can’t wait to fully review this game when it comes out in October! Looking like a must have for the holidays!

Developed by FreeStyleGames, the studio behind DJ Hero and DJ Hero 2, Guitar Hero Live introduces two powerful ways to play, including a first-person point of view where you are up on stage as the star of the show. A quantum leap forward in immersion and realism, Guitar Hero Live is a live-action experience that delivers the full emotional roller coaster of being on stage, with players performing in a real band, in front of real crowds, who react in real time to how well or poorly you play.
Guitar Hero Live also includes GHTV, a revolutionary new way to play Guitar Hero. The 24-hour playable music video network lets fans play along to a continually-updated collection of official videos, from the newest releases to favorite hits. GHTV also lets players compete with their friends as well as players from across the globe to battle for the highest score on any given song.
Guitar Hero Live introduces a new guitar controller that features six buttons: two rows of three buttons that better reflect the way people naturally play and deliver more fun for players of all abilities. This simple innovation makes it easier for beginners to play and harder for veterans to master.
