See Guitar Hero drums in action

Red Hot Chili Peppers, blink-182 drummers try out the kit inside

As you can see demonstrated by drum men of blink-182, The Police and Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Guitar Hero drums are velocity sensitive and have two cymbals. So basically the harder you hit it, the louder the sound. That's what a drum kit does anyway.

The fourth title in the series goes beyond drums and down the full-on Rock Band route, with vocals, bass and guitar also supported.

Excitingly, there's a bit more customization this time around as well, letting you modify the crap out of in-game tracks and even design your own record sleeve - though we're less excited about that one.

Confirmed bands so far consist of Van Halen, The Eagles, Linkin Park and Sublime. Expect it before the year's end.
