GH drum kit made over for Guitar Hero 5?
A source for Engadget sent out this image of the supposed made-over version of Guitar Hero's drum kit. Said to be launched in time for Guitar Hero 5 (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii), it looks less bulky -- and more like Rock Band's drum kit.
If you look closely, the more obvious changes would be the transfer of the control console from the tip of the drum kit to the other end, right in front of the drummer. Apart from that, the shape of the cymbals had been remodeled from the inverted fan form to the regular round-shaped ones.
What you don't see even if you magnify your zoom to the max is the presence of three mini ports at the back: two for kick pedals, and one black mini jack for yet-to-be-seen purposes. Much like the one the Rock Band
Be that as it may, the other mystery to all this is that Activision
has yet to unveil this revamped version of the drum kit. If it really were supposed to be for the GH5
, you'd think they'd get a move on the launch of this peripheral given that the game itself is coming out in just a couple of months.
We'll keep you updated on this one.
