Public Demonstrations of Guitar Hero Live Show the Brutality of the New Controller

By   /   Apr 20, 2015

As part of a new promotional campaign for Guitar Hero Live, Activision arranged several live events over the weekend at major retailers for fans to get an early experience with the new installment in the rhythm franchise, as well as to try out its new controller.

The public demonstrations were held at Best Buy Union Square and Toys “R” Us Times Square in New York, and Best Buy in Torrance, CA. Only three songs were set on stage, but fans were majorly interested in trying out the new controller.

Activision has already stated that the new design will post a challenge for players and those who tried the game over the weekend realized this for themselves. The new controller features a six-button layout scheme for an experience that closely resembles to actually playing a real guitar. Veteran players of the old Guitar Hero titles will have to start from scratch and develop new finger muscles in order to take control of the new scheme.

Guitar Hero Live is scheduled for release this Fall for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, and select mobile devices. I’m guessing this is the most amount of platforms a Guitar Hero game has ever come out to.

A complete list of tracks will probably be given soon. At the moment though, the official blurb promises to have more content than players can play through.
