As fun as jamming on Guitar Hero 3 is, some would prefer to rock with their friends as a whole band – enter Rock Band. In the next iteration of the Guitar Hero franchise, we’ll probably see just as many instruments as Rock Band has, according to Activision‘s CEO. Details in the full article.

Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PC) is an extremely fun and popular title, but when the next iteration of the game arrives later this year, we’ll probably see it adapt another name since we’ll be seeing more instruments for the game.

What?! More instruments? You heard right. According to Activision‘s CEO Bobby Kotick, we won’t just see more instruments, but vocals as well. We’ll probably have to call it Band Hero now or something to that effect. According to Kotick:

We’ll include a lot of other instruments, vocals. It will help us expand internationally. It’s the first game we’ve had in which we can use local content and local bands.

Pretty cool. Wonder what they’ll add though. Maybe saxophones? Nah. We’ll probably see drums and a mic in the package like Rock Band has, but here’s hoping they’ll be able to add different instruments. Like harps, maybe? Nah.
