Game Awards 2015: Rock Band VR Is Like Guitar Hero Live, But Also Not

Oculus Rift support is coming to Rock Band, and the result is surprisingly familiar. 


Oculus support is coming to Rock Band 4 in the form of Rock Band VR, as announced during The Game Awards 2015.

The clip shown during the show featured Harmonix personnel hanging out with Dragonforce, clanging fake guitars against a stage, and making fools of themselves to emulate the "rock star life."

It looks like that's what Rock Band VR is aiming to do as well, much like what Guitar Hero Live accomplished with the live footage onscreen shown to players when they're performing well or abhorrently.

I hate to say it, but I think right now from this early footage Guitar Hero Live might have done a better job in the aesthetic department, but having never tested out an Oculus Rift, I'd still have to give this a spin to see how I feel.
