- Activision CEO Bobby Kotick
has said that Guitar Hero IV will be receiving extra peripherals, including a microphone.
Kotick commented on the future of the franchise in an interview with Conde Nast Portfolio magazine (according to IGN). He also mentioned that the next instalment will let players strum along with bands local to their area.
"It's not just about guitars," Kotick said. "We'll include a lot of other instruments, vocals. It will help us expand internationally. It's the first game we've had in which we can use local content and local bands."
But whether or not you'll be able to sing along with your local pub band (ho-ho) is insignificant next to the price. Will Activision undercut the £180 price point of Rock Band with Guitar Hero IV? This could get interesting.
