Guitar Hero World Tour drum kit and guitar now supported by Rock Band 2

Harmonix and MTV Games are all about consumers needing only one set of plastic instruments, unless of course you’re referring to the Chester household, in which case I hear they stockpile their peripherals by the dozen in a state of the art vault.

To make good on the words of encouragement, Harmonix released a patch today for the PlayStation 3 version of Rock Band 2 which fixes a slew of things, including adding support for the Guitar Hero World Tour drum and guitar peripherals.

Neat, huh? A similar patch is in the works for the Xbox 360 version of Rock Band 2, so it’s looking like no one will be getting the shaft this time around. For once.

Hit the jump to see exactly what this mighty patch entails.
