Extra Online Fee Required For Guitar Hero: World Tour PS3?
You just can't put anything by the eagle-eyed Internet gaming surfers, now can you?
Avid readers from all over, including the readers of our site, have noticed something troublesome regarding the PlayStation 3 and Wii versions of Guitar Hero: World Tour. It's due to a little blurb spotted at the end of an IGN article on the game, which mentions "an additional subscription" for the unfortunate PS3 and Wii owners. We're not exactly sure what this means, but everyone has been forming their own theories and opinions thus far. Here's what everyone is questioning:
"Online gameplay is only available for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and Wii and may require an additional subscription."
What, the regular ol' online subscription isn't good enough? PS3 and Wii owners are going to be pretty darn unhappy with Activision if this proves to be true, and they actually have to pay more just to play World Tour online. Of course, it does help that the Network is free - while Xbox Live isn't - but even so, what makes the 360 so special in this particular scenario? Why would Activision try to wrest more money from the hands of PS3 and Wii owners? Hopefully, we can get to the bottom of this shortly, because Guitar Hero: World Tour is a definite multiplayer bash...and no upsetting the fans!
