Earlier this week, Guitar Hero World Tour’s developer Neversoft confirmed on stage that the forthcoming installment in the rock rhythm series will be compatible with non-Guitar Hero instruments. Curious whether that meant Rock Band instruments will work with World Tour, MTV Multiplayer asked two Activision representatives for clarification.
Activision confirmed that the Xbox 360 version of Guitar Hero World Tour will indeed be compatible with the original Rock Band instruments, as well as other third-party guitar and drum peripherals. As for the Rock Band 2 ones, it’s too early to tell. The company refused to comment whether the same applies for other versions of World Tour, but it would be strange if it didn’t.
