Guitar Hero, Now On Google Phone

Activision like to exploit franchises. Guitar Hero is probably their biggest. So when a new platform - the Google Phone - comes around, you can bet Activision will be exploiting Guitar Hero on it.


Announced yesterday was an Android-ready version of Guitar Hero World Tour Mobile. It differs from the standard version of GHWTM by featuring touch-screen gameplay, as gamers literally tap the fret button at the base of the screen.

For those unfamiliar with GHWTM's particular brand of exploitation, the game features 15 tracks, most of them of the classic rock variety. Which is fine. Our question: if they can do a version for the Android, why can't they do one for the iPhone?
