"Guitar Hero is a franchise that so many people love. Figuring out how to bring it back with true breakthrough innovation has been years in the making, and a labor of love.”

“Guitar Hero Live lets people rock real crowds with real reactions. Our goal was literally to give people stage fright. And with GHTV, we have created the world’s first playable music video network. All of it is playable on consoles, or mobile devices. Guitar Hero is back and better than ever.”

As for the controller it too is getting a sleek new redesign to enhance the game play for veterans and beginners. Now featuring two rows of three buttons to allow players to play naturally without will players stretch their fingers down to reach the other buttons. Players can skillfully play two-row combinations that mimic real chords.

The redesign in my opinions sounds really nice since I’ve never enjoyed playing the original 5 buttons guitar. The new design of the guitar looks so attractive too opposed to the old white controller I had. I think it’s time to buy a new guitar lol,I excited to give the guitar hero another try when Guitar Hero Live launch Fall 2015. So who’s excited for the new guitar hero live? And who we’ll join me in the epic quest of becoming guitar heroes?
