Guitar Hero: Hendrix and The Raconteurs Available Soon as DLC
As we already know, Guitar Hero: World Tour is about to get one of the greatest guitarist of all time — Jimi Hendrix but Activision is also adding Jack White’s (White Strips) band The Raconteurs as a DLC starting on November 13 and 20th respectively. Even though the overall reviews for Guitar Hero are not measuring up to Rock Band 2 — just having Jimi Hendrix alone could be worth my investment for the $180 GH package. Okay, maybe that’s a bit of a exaggeration, but playing some of his classic songs is still pretty awesome.
Jimi Hendrix DLC will include a live version of “Fire,” and studio tacks of “Little Wing” and “If 6 was 9.” The package will be available for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for $5.49 (440 MS Points). Apparently, while Hendrix was on his death bed, he requested not to be on the Wii because he felt it was to “kiddy.” Sorry Nintendo fanboys, it was his decision so, blame him — not me.
The Raconteurs’ songs will only be sold separately for $1.99 (160 MS Points). However, the Wii will get love from Jack White because if you spend 200 Wii Points, you’ll be able to at least play some Raconteurs.
