Broken consoles to play guitar hero on

You're probably here because  you're pretty good at fixing things or like to have a go yourself.  With Guitar Hero, the accessories are now cheap enough second hand to be able to get another guitar or drumset to have an experiment with. We at GHR know a thing or two about consoles and have several rigs in place to test our kit. With Wii, Xbox, Playstation and DS now supporting GH, there's no reason not to get a cheap console and have more than one setup. That way, if something goes wrong with your repair, you can take more time to fix it if you need to or even compare the dead one with the working one.

If you're not worried about looks, there are plenty of abused and dropped consoles out there which still work. Here's a selection of the consoles currently available by auction which are completely broken, slightly damaged or just in need of a quick fix:

For the repair, I'd suggest you Google the problem and see if there are known fixes in place to make it an easier repair. For example, Googling "red ring of death" currently returns 1.9 million pages so it's pretty sure that this fix is not undocumented for the Xbox 😉

Good luck and drop us a line if this helps you get a bargain that was a simple fix.

Guitar Hero Greatest Hits

Back in the day, to bring out a greatest hits record you had to be one of the biggest bands in the world and have a career spanning decades, now it seems that as soon as a band has enough songs to fill a 60min CD they bring out a greatest hits, and Guitar Hero is no exception

Activision have announced the Guitar Hero Greatest hits with some of the best songs from previous releases, a partial song list is all we have so far and it contains

  • “Them Bones” - Alice in Chains
  • “Killer Queen” - Queen
  • “Nothin’ But A Good Time” - Poison
  • “Killing in the Name” - Rage Against The Machine
  • “I Wanna Rock” - Twisted Sister
  • “I Love Rock N Roll”  - Joan Jett and The Blackhearts
  • “Barracuda” - Heart

And of course the most famous GH song of all

  • “Through the Fire and Flames” - Dragonforce

This will allow the whole band to play on song that were previously only for the guitars and should hopefully be a great buy for anyone just getting into GH.  As for hardened fans..... well you will probably have most of the tracks already and with so many new GH games on the horizon will you be delving back into the past just to play drums on a few tracks you know and love?

What songs would you like to see on it?
