Default Guitar Hero World Tour for PC and Mac

There goes the only reason I haven't get rid of my 360, I just got this game with the full instrument kit a month ago. I really didn't expect this game to reach PC, it looks like sales of Guitar Hero III and Aerosmith on PC weren't that bad. It will be released this summer Source.

Aspyr Media and Activision Publishing, Inc. have teamed once again to rock the computer gaming world with the announcement of Guitar Hero World Tour for Windows PC and Mac. Transforming music gaming by expanding Guitar Hero’s signature guitar gameplay into a cooperative band experience, Guitar Hero World Tour for PC and Mac offers state-of-the-art wireless controllers to computer gamers for the first time, new online and offline gameplay modes and a Music Studio feature for composing and editing original rock and roll anthems. Guitar Hero World Tour is the most complete music game to-date with 86 on-disc tracks from music legends such as The Eagles, Van Halen, Metallica, Michael Jackson and The Doors and features in-game appearances by world famous artists such as Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Corgan and Travis Barker.

“Guitar Hero World Tour is the standard for music games on consoles and we can’t wait to unleash this incredible experience on computer gamers,” said Ted Staloch, Executive Vice President, Aspyr Media. “With full band play, support for the new wireless controllers, the ability to create their own music and an amazing array of customization options, Guitar Hero World Tour will be the definitive music game on PC and Mac. We are proud to once again be working with Activision to extend this powerful brand to an eager audience of gamers.”

Yes it was. Hopefully it will support the keyboard as well, then it would be a lot easier to use. On the console it only works with the guitar from what I've read, so it's very awkward to use.

You can hook your computer up to your TV. :P It would actually be pretty easy to run this game from any laptop IMO. It's not like the requirements are going to be high.

I'm not going to believe that until it actually comes out. Someone's going to need to test that to make sure given their crappy ability to support hardware.

And you can use a monitor with the console, got some friends who got both the PC and the 360 connected to the monitor. Not every console gamer plays on HDTVs
