Guitar Hero PlayStation 4 will plug in and practice a few power chords on 1st April, an invitation received by Gamereactor UK suggests. The site – which has since pulled its article – reported that Activision will be holding an event at "Hamburg Rock City" where it suggested that attendees should be ready to "rock the shack with us". That quote wouldn't look out of place in Life Is Strange, would it?
The reality is that a new entry in the publisher's rhythm series has been rumoured for a while, with an announcement previously pegged for E3 2015. With creator Harmonix already busy peddling Rock Band 4, though, the firm may have decided to bring its reveal forwards. Even though it's been five years, we're not sure that we're ready for a new Battle of the Band (Games) – but it looks like that's what we're going to get anyway. Yay?

I liked how they picked April 1st, to make it seem like a joke at first.
@CrazyOtto compared to Rockband, Guitar Hero is a joke!
@thedevilsjester: I don't think so buddy. Guitar Hero was and always will be the king, along with DJ Hero. Rock Band was always an inferior wannabee to me(though I own all the Rock Band games as well to get the most out of my real wood GH guitars).
@KnightRider666 Guitar Hero just aeemed like a silly kids game compared to rockband (granted they are both video games, but GH seemed like something my oldsest kids would play where as RB was something adults would play) not to mention GH has terrible guitars and it wasnt until they tried to copy RB (and did a poor job at that) that they got more than just guitar.
@thedevilsjester: The real wood GH guitars are awesome. They take quite a beating too. My buddy would literally destroy guitars on expert mode. He bought the same one I have and has yet to break it to this day.
@KnightRider666 its mostly the buttons (shape, size, and placement), not the shell, that make GH guitars terrible. The RB ones are flat, rectangle, narrow, and touching eachother, rather than arrow-ish, raised, and separated by too much of a gap. I only used one I had and one at the arcade, but they were both terrible.
@thedevilsjester I'm with you. Rock band feels more grown up and the guitars are much better. Not to mention the pro drums are much better.
Rock Band has far more songs. This franchise doesn't need to exist.
I prefer to play real guitar than guitar hero
Dude, this is way too weird. People are actually calling games where you play with a plastic guitar "grown up"? Really if you worry about those things you should really stop playing video games.
I always prefered Guitar Hero though, I liked that the game never took itself seriously in anyway. Rock Band just makes me feel awkward, by being so 'cool' and all. In no way I understand why an "adult" would prefer one above the other, as both games are just what they are... the same.
And I liked the GH-guitars more, they provide more of a challenge. In GH you really have to knew the controller, to place your finger in the correct spot.
typical.....I got rid of all my guitar hero guitars and drums last year , I enjoyed the game, not sure if I'd buy all the stuff again tho....but you never know
I had Guitar Hero Aerosmith, and was disappointed at the fact that it wasn't all Aerosmith...ended up going with Rock Band Beatles, where it is all the Beatles, and ended up loving the Rock Band series more...they somehow were more fun to me, however, these games became too expensive over time, and if you didn't get the new bundle sets, I couldn't find the instruments separate. I've been looking for the Rock Band Keyboard and Drum kit, and can't find them anywhere. I have two guitars and microphones, so if Rock Band 4 is coming to PS4, I hope I can find more instruments, or use the same ones that I have, without having to buy more.
damn you, Activision. I loved GH 3, WT and Metallica but Rock Band won my heart. You ruined the genre: I wont buy anymore of your products.
