GH on the Wii Too I Suspect!

Activision has long been a supporter of multiple platforms. I suspect that you'll see GH in a revised incarnation on the Wii, Xbox 360, and possibly later on the PS3. The difficult component of this is that you have to have different connectors for each of your distributed guitars. I also presume that there will be demand for wireless controllers on systems that support it. All three platforms will support network connectivity, so perhaps you'll be able to purchase new songs, a long coveted feature. The trouble is, where will you put them all?

GameDaily BIZ: Guitar Hero Goes Multi-Platform
According to numerous Internet reports, Activision's CEO and Chairman Robert Kotick revealed that Guitar Hero will release on every format deemed "significant." This was revealed during a keynote address at the Goldman Sachs Communacopia XV Conference. It was not announced which platforms Guitar Hero will be coming to specifically, but the release will apparently come in 2007.

This announcement comes on the heels of rumors that state that Guitar Hero will be coming to the Xbox 360 in early 2007. RedOctane, the game's publisher, has yet to release an official statement on the matter. Guitar Hero II will release on PS2 in November 2006.
