Guitar Hero Metallica coming in early 2009


It's a Christmas miracle! Someone's actually admitting out loud that Guitar Hero: Metallica exists! The band spilled a ton of details to USA Today, including word on the game's difficulty (considerable) and the story, which casts you as a band, inspired by Metallica, following them around the world and playing their songs. It's a strange structure, but the reasoning (the band's early work would have been far too hard, ruling out a chronological approach) seems pretty sound.

We imagine there will be very few of you on the fence, so we have to ask: When Guitar Hero: Metallica arrives early next year, will you be picking it up?
