Guitar Hero 5 Song Importing Explained

The importing of songs from past Guitar Hero games into Guitar Hero 5 will not be similar to the Rock Band 2 importation, Activision has revealed.

Instead, gamers will be downloading the songs Guitar Hero: World Tour and Guitar Hero Smash Hits as if they were DLC. nope "Within the Guitar Hero 5 song import menu, gamers will key in their unique ID from the manual of the previous game, pay a small re-licensing fee and then be given access to download the available songs (like DLC) in a big batch," explained an Activision spokesman to Joystiq.

Activision notes that the downloading process allows the Guitar Hero team to recreate the songs with support for Guitar Hero 5 features such as band moments, expert+ drumming and vocal star power.
