Activision’s GH: World Tour may be an open declaration of war against Harmonix, but at least consumers aren’t getting caught in the crossfire. According to MTV Multiplayer, Activision has officially announced the game to be compatible with Rock Band’s set of instruments.
Currently, only the Xbox 360 version is confirmed as blanketed by this happy bit of news, but hopefully it will extend to the PS3, Wii, and PS2 versions as well.
For now, though, the score is Your Living Room: 1, and Peripheral Based Games: well, still a lot.

According to this Joystiq story, a Guitar Hero: On Tour DS bundle is to release in the US on June 22.
An official price for the package, which will include a new black and silver DS Lite branded with the Guitar Hero logo, has not yet been announced. Apparently, though, Toys ‘R’ Us listed the pack at $180 earlier before removing the detail.
No announcement on this for Europe as yet.

Activision’s released a new promo video fro Guitar Hero: On Tour, explaining how the rhythm action game’s DS version works in details and ably illustrating why the “younger generation’s” ignominy is now complete.
You activate your rock mode thing in the title by shouting “rock out” into the console’s microphone. Just pathetic. It’s out this summer. Movie after the link.

Speaking in an investor call after the announcement of record financials last night, Activision execs confirmed that a DS bundle with the upcoming handheld version of Guitar Hero – Guitar Hero: On Tour – will be released when the game launches on June 22 in the US.

We’re not going to lie: we hate Guitar Hero. We are, however, in a clear minority. Therefore, here’s a sheet of information about the DS version, Guitar Hero: On Tour, which, apparently, is a “handheld rockathon”.
Read it yourself.

According to this, Guitar Hero: On Tour, the DS version of Activision’s mind-numbingly popular rhythm action game, has been priced at $50 by Amazon in the US. This isn’t confirmed, obviously, and the chances of it being even close to that in value in the UK are next to zero. The game releases this summer.

Wow. Check this out. The DS version of Guitar Hero – Guitar Hero: On Tour – will come with a fret device that slots into DS’s GBA cart port. The game will include a line-up of more than 20 licensed songs from bands as Nirvana, OK Go, and No Doubt. The multiplayer stuff sounds awesome: players can activate power-ups that’ll send raving fans to an opponent’s screen, who will then have to sign autographs on the touchscreen to get rid of them. Or out-of-control pyrotechnics will be set ablaze, and players will have to blow them out using the DS microphone.
There’s a movie here. Guitar Hero: On Tour releases this summer.
