I saw the trailer and I think it looks pretty cool, too bad I don't have the money or the right game counsel for it.

I love this! The graphics are better than I ever imagined. It looks fantastic!

I also love how suddenly bizarre it gets at "I Am The Walrus." It's all so normal up to that point: concert, concert, concert, concert, concert...TOTAL INSANITY!

I wonder if there'd be any previews available at Chicago Fest? It's only a few weeks before the release - it would be fun to see a live demo! Or at least some more footage.

I really like what I see.

Yeah, this is pretty much extremely sweet, they did a great job. I don't have any of the game consoles either, and I won't be buying one just for the game. But it's cool anyway, it should sell a ton.

I'm glad my brother and I like video games and have all the consoles and the Rockband game I probably won't be getting the instruments, as cool as they look, can't afford it. But will hopefully be getting the 60 dollar game!

I'd buy it just to watch the graphics!

But for a guitarist like myself, I think these games would be a bit.... pointless(?). They're geared for the musically untrained - yes? The guitars have buttons on them that you press along to color lights, etc?

Anyway, it looks cool and th designers did a kick-ass job.

Guitarist of not, these are games with their own form of entertainment and enjoyment. You can be a guitarist and still enjoy the competition and mastering a gaming skill, if that is your thing.

Even better, it is a blast to get some friends, listen to some great tracks and give each other crap for messing up their bits LOL.

I can't wait to see this in HiDef and on the big screen. :)

Oh I'm sure it would be, at worst, fun.

I just talked to a fellow guitarist friend and he played one of the other Guitar Hero games. He enjoyed it but found himself wanting to do bends and pulls, etc. but the game doesn't support such guitarist techniques, obviously.

I posted this elsewhere but thought providing a link here would be appropriate as well.
