"Guitar Hero" Greatest Hits
Tucked away in a recent article about Activision's 2009 plans is a reference to Guitar Hero: Greatest Hits. This won't interest PS2 owners, but for fans of the franchise with other consoles--especially the Wii--this will be exciting. They'll cull together songs from the earlier games (Guitar Hero and Guitar Hero II, certainly, and possiblyGuitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s). What makes this release really interesting is that the songs will be re-mastered for the full band experience. No word yet on how many, or which, songs will be included, or whether they will stick with the cover versions used on the earlier games or if they'll spend the coin to upgrade to original master recordings for this release.
