Guitar Hero World Tour Gets $240 Deluxe Edition, Regular Band Bundle Priced at $190

With Guitar Hero World Tour and its 86 on-disc tracks due out October 26, publisher Activision has confirmed price points for the various editions of the music game.

A $240 deluxe bundle for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, available only from Activision subsidiary RedOctane, packs the game, wireless guitar, wireless drum set and a microphone, along with an XL t-shirt, recharge kit, dual gig bag, and key chain.

PlayStation 2 and Wii versions of the deluxe bundle are priced at $220, with the Wii bundle lacking a rechargeable battery pack as its instruments plug into the Wii Remote.

Meanwhile, Activision told Joystiq that regular retailers will stock the following:

  • Full Band Kit (Game, Wireless Guitar, Wireless Drums, Microphone)
    • $190 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii.
    • $180 for PlayStation 2.
  • Guitar Bundle (Game, Wireless Guitar)
    • $100 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii.
    • $90 for PlayStation 2.

The core game itself will sell for $60 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, with the Wii and PlayStation 2 editions coming in at $50. As previously announced, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 editions will be compatible with the instruments made for Rock Band.

Be aware that, as with the Wii release of Guitar Hero 3, the Wii guitars and now the Wii drums require a Wii Remote be inserted into the instrument for use.

Harmonix's rival series Rock Band will also see a $190 Rock Band 2 Special Edition, packing wireless drums, wireless guitar and a microphone, come to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 19.

Though the game itself is already available on Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3 version doesn't arrive until October 19. PlayStation 2 and Wii editions of Rock Band 2 and its 84 on-disc tracks, won't hit until later this year.
