VIDEO: Rock Band of the future - augmented reality style
Musician and ex-pro Guitar Hero player (no, really) Freddie Wong has given us a glimpse of what he believes will be the future for Rock Band and such games. And why not?
Combining augmented reality (graphical overlay) onto real instruments may be some way off, but we can see two reasons why it could just work; a) it'd get kids playing real guitars, drums, etc, rather than plastic, coloured button equivalents; and b) it is just so damn cool.
Unfortunately though, Freddie's omitted any functionality for singers, so the charts in the future will be full of instrumental choons. Great news for Jean Michel Jarre, at least.
What would you like to see implemented in games in the future? Or do you have an idea already... hmmmm? Let us know in the comments below...
