With the rise and eventual world domination of Guitar Hero since 2005, it’s surprising that only in recent months has another company chosen to compete with it. However, even though we gamers now have both Guitar Hero and Rock Band to moisten our gaming and masculine desire to wield Toys “R” Us style plastic instruments and feel the thrill of rocking the world to it’s underpants, a third developer has decided that two ways of rock escapism is not enough.
Enter Konami, makers of the Metal Gear and Silent Hill behemoths. The game will be entitled Rock Revolution and will centre predominately around the drumming aspect of rocking, however guitar and base will also be included. The drum kit will consist of six drum pads and a pedal. The game will be released for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, and DS. Strangely the DS version will be the only one to include vocals.
Has our rock hunger been satisfied already, or will that be achieved only by either Shreddies, or Rock Revolution?. Only time will tell.
