BAFTA Award for Guitar Hero

Glittering awards ceremony honours RedOctane Guitar game
RedOctaneannounced that Guitar Hero picked up the Best Soundtrack award during the British Academy of Film and Television Arts ceremony held last night. The game allows PlayStation 2 owners to perform 30 fully licensed classic rock songs on a unique guitar peripheral, modelled on the classic Gibson SG. Once strapped on, the controller becomes the ultimate way to jam, making players not just feel like rock gods, but look like them, too. Guitar Hero also boasts 17 additional songs from up and coming artists and eight additional Gibson guitars, which can be unlocked throughout the game. The sequel to Guitar Hero will be released in November 2006.
