Guitar Hero World Tour rocking PC, Mac

Aspyr Media and Activision bringing wireless-controller-enabled four-piece rhythm title to desktop platforms this summer.

Just as Aspyr Media and Activision teamed to bring Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock to the PC and Mac following the $1 billion title's console effort, so too are the companies teaming on Guitar Hero World Tour. The two said today that the four-piece rhythm game will arrive for desktop platforms this summer.

Like the console editions of World Tour, the PC and Mac versions of the game will feature 86 on-disc tracks, from the likes of The Eagles, Van Halen, Metallica, Michael Jackson, and The Doors. GameSpot's previous coverage has full details on the complete set list. Aspyr did not indicate whether the PC and Mac editions would support downloadable content and had not responded to requests for comment as of press time.

New this year, the PC and Mac editions of World Tour will offer wireless controllers, of which drums, guitars, and a mic will be available. The desktop-gaming versions of the title will also offer a variety of online and offline gameplay modes, as well as the song-creation feature Music Studio.

For an idea of what to expect from Guitar Hero World Tour on PCs and Macs, check out GameSpot's full review of the console editions of the game.

Yes finally :D now I can play WT guitar on the PC seeing as redoctane still haven't bothered to return my wii one. Hopefully we'll have be able to have some custom songs too now.

If your going to spend $60 for the console version, then you can shell out $75 for a new Video card. I only have a AMD dual core with 2GRAM and 512 ATI4670. Plays GH3 at max settings. And it has hdmi out, so the only thing you have to whine about now is hauling your pc next to your living room TV for band play. Graphics suck anyway on these console ports... how many people in the crowd do you need having the exact same clothes and head banging motion...

The success of this title depends on one thing and that's solid online play and the player base to back it up or else majority of people will just pirate it like the last two titles. Also there's no need to turn this into an e-peen contest. Besides I swear half the people who boast about their computer specs looked them up on some stupid site thinking their the best specs and don't even realize how stupid they sound after attempting to brag.

i wish that the pc version will have a more open configuration on the graphics. a good example is that you could change the graphics to the ps2 or the X360. i cant change my GPU every 2 years! PD: i dont know english , i speak spanish , please sorry about the orthography ;)

it would be lame if these versions didn't support DLC but who cares anyway? RB2 is still the better game

Blimey that's going to be a struggle. What with most gaming PCs being in a study or bedroom. Not exactly the living room experience of the console versions is it?

And who gives a sh*t about THAT abomination of a game? Settle with Gh2 & 3. And get some DLC for them.

Not content with just carpal tunnel, it now seems they're going for damaging eye strain. Or trying to popularize 52 inch monitors.

This will be a joy on 20"(or smaller) screens... *Disclaimer: Yes, I'm aware that some people have larger monitors*

Considering what a powerhouse of a computer you needed for GH3, I wonder what this will be like.
