What’s In The Box

Guitar Hero controllerTHE GUITAR CONTROLLER
Easier to play, harder to master – The guitar controller was redesigned for the best gameplay across all skill levels. The new 2×3 button layout makes it easier to play with only three buttons, or, on veteran, it starts mirrors what it’s like to play chord shapes with all six buttons, making the game easier for beginners and harder for experts.

New Controller Features

  • More real than ever! The guitar controller has been updated to reflect the new style and realism of Guitar Hero Live.
  • All new button layout – The new 2×3 button layout creates the feeling of switching between strings and provides an enhanced experience when playing chords.
  • Classic strum bar – Why mess with perfection? The strum bar you know and love is back in all its glory.
  • Next level Hero Powers – Use the guitar’s tilt sensor or the new Hero Power button to activate one of the many newly available Hero powers.
  • Return of the whammy – The classic whammy bar makes a triumphant return, to help you show off your flair.
  • Direct access to GHTV – The GHTV button lets you jump straight into GHTV from anywhere in the game.


This latest Guitar Hero offering comes with an awesome new guitar designed with a 2 x 3 button layout. You’ll truly feel like you’re a world famous rock star with this. Beginners can use just three buttons and veterans can challenge themselves with the full six.

  • There are hundreds of songs and videos available from all genres of music. Whatever your tastes, you’ll definitely find something to fall in love with. Just don’t let your dad near the guitar or you might have to suffer through hours of “Unchained Melody” or “Oh, Carol” as he relives his childhood rock star fantasies!
  • You can buy a single guitar pack and indulge your dreams of being a rock star or you can go for the 2 pack bundle and jam with friends and family.


As for cons? We can’t think of any! Unless, of course, the noise levels get too loud and your neighbors start giving you angry looks.

Is Guitar Hero Live Worth Buying?

The features of the new Guitar Hero game are light years ahead of the original and give players an exhilarating taste of performing to a stadium full of screaming fans.

Even if you’ve never learned to play the guitar, the game is easy to learn and you can quickly develop in skill. There will never be a boring moment. Once you’re an expert, you can up the challenge by switching to the six button mode.

Whether you’re into ripping it up like ACDC’s Angus Young or strumming along to Ed Sheeran, the GHTV function will mean that you can play any song your way. But watch out! Your quest to reach Hero Status could get addictive.


Regardless of which console you own, your lounge room can now be transformed into a wicked concert hall with the new Guitar Hero Live. The awesomeness of Guitar Hero has been reinvented and Guitar Hero Live promises to take it to greater heights.
