Earlier in the week, Activision and Red Octane unveiled the next full title in the Guitar Hero series, set to hit the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii later this year. Hidden in the PR, beneath the distraction of a star-studded track listing, was a small snippet that cause a few people to smash their keyboards in frustration: 

The exclusive Gibson guitars will include innovative features such as removable faceplates that will allow fans to later personalize their guitars and make it their own, and a new button color design that will be integrated for an even greater authentic feel and rock experience.

Say what now? With a new color scheme, how will that change the game? Will an entirely new peripheral be needed? Can I still play the game with my pants off? I'm very comfortable with my current color scheme, thank you very much. 

We contacted Red Octane for clarification, and fortunately for them (money for a hit was seconds away from changing hands), they were able to ease our minds.

"The new color button design will definitely not affect the actual game play," Red Octane's Brian Lam told Destructoid. "Rather it is merely for a more authentic rock look and feel, and the SG and X-Plorer guitars will still work with their specific platform for the next Guitar Hero title."

Call off the dogs, boys; there's no need to cancel Christmas this year.

Not a lot looks changed in Call of Duty's 'Power Changes Everything' trailer

For a trailer that boldly suggests that "power changes everything," Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare sure looks pretty similar to past installments in the franchise. I guess the guys jump higher before using their mega-de...more
