Play Guitar Hero Live on your new Apple TV
Or don’t. It’s up to you, really, I’m just letting you know it’s now an option.
Activision’s Guitar Hero Live is the latest incarnation of the rhythm game variation you thought was long dead. We initially told you about it back when it was released for iOS, and wondered if the game would lose some (or maybe all) of its appeal on a tiny iPhone or iPad screen.
With Apple TV compatibility, however, that’s no longer an issue; everyone will get to watch you pretend to rock out in two game modes: GH Live and GHTV
Of course, Apple TV users are going to need the newly designed guitar (which it looks like you can only get from T-Mobile) as your old Guitar Hero hardware isn’t compatible with Guitar Hero Live. The new features six buttons—two rows of three buttons—that better reflect the way people naturally play. Hard to duplicate that on the Apple TV remote, but those content to play on the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch will be good with just the touchscreen.
