Yeah...so it turns out Guitar Hero 5's ability to import songs from previous games isn't as good a deal as we first thought. Turns out that, of World Tour's 85 songs, only 35 can so far be copied over.
That's less than half. Funny that there's some mysterious ailment afflicting songs sold on a retail disc, when 152 of the 158 downloadable tracks for Guitar Hero will work just fine with Guitar Hero 5.
Like Rock Band, there's a charge associated with bringing the songs over—$US3.50—but unlike Rock Band, which let you import nearly the entire previous game's library, we're having a little trouble seeing the benefits of ponying up for only 35 songs.
