We know Activision has loads of new Guitar Hero games in the works. What we didn't expect is a Guitar Hero all about Aussie music and only for the Australian market. But that's exactly what Guitar Hero: OZ RAWK is.
Due for release on July 1, which is of course John Farnham's birthday, Guitar Hero: OZ RAWK is a celebration of all that is great about Aussie music. The official press release we got this morning lists Wii, PS3, PS2 and Xbox 360 as the platforms it's heading to and confirms compatibility with all your existing World Tour peripherals.
You'll be able to choose from the standard World Tour style packs: software only; guitar bundle; super bundle with guitar, drums and mic. However, in addition, Activision is offering a limited edition "Meldrum Bundle" that includes the super bundle plus a Countdown Spectacular Live DVD, a framed ticket stub from the Angels' legendary 1983 gig at the Revesby Workers Club, an autographed photo of the great man's meeting with Prince Charles (pictured above) and a tattered old Akubra hat.
As well as Farnsey's perennial anthems "You're The Voice" and "Sadie the Cleaning Lady", the announced tracklist includes of old classics and contemporary faves:
