Rock Band. You can play the guitar there and more.
Rockband. because you get all the instruments.
guitar hero is exactly the same as the rockband game using the guitar. So whats the point in getting guitar hero.
Rock Band is crazy fun for parties or for just having some friends over.
Rock Band pretty much encompasses Guitar Hero, so yes, Rock Band wins.
Rock Band is more fun overall, but the Guitar Hero songs are far better for the guitar play. Rock Band songs were chosen based on the overall ensemble, making it fun to play on all instruments... which means that the individual instruments might lack some fun/challenge for the overall group. Guitar Hero focuses on fun guitar play only, and is slightly better for that part. If you want screaming solos and finger bleeding guitar play, play Guitar Hero. If you want a bigger, overall fun without the specifically interesting guitar, play Rock Band.
Rock Band, definitely. I played it for the first time this past weekend, and it was so fun playing with any instrument. The one thing I don't like about it is that it has some good songs, but it also has a lot of songs that, in my opinion, are far from my tastes. I guess it is nice to give it more of a variety for different people, though. Guitar Hero was fun while it lasted.
I can't stand EA. They see something that another company has done and just adds to it. Case in point with Rock Band. All they did was take guitar hero and add more instruments. They can't stand to be losing in any genre. Im sure most of you are familiar a few years back when EA bought the rights to NFL players the year after 2K sports pwned them with NFL 2k5. Now that there is no competition for an NFL game, they just put out rehashes of the previous year with perhaps improved graphics.
but back to rock band, their controller sucks for the guitar. yeah it may look more like a guitar than guitar hero, but the feel of it is not the best. as for singing, i dont want to look like a complete moron destroying some of the best songs out there. i saw one group of people do it at my college and i couldn't help but laugh. the one thing i do give props for is the drums. besides the guitar, thats the one instrument id want to play.
all in all, i go with the original rocker game in guitar hero. FTW
Rock band is fun, I dig the character customization and what not, but I dig the gameplay on guitar for GH3 so much more. I find the guitar parts on RB to be a little boring at times.

So what about college students doing karaoke? I'm guessing that whatever college that you go to, I'm sure that there is a karaoke night at some bar or a karaoke bar. I know back at Michigan State there was one. Some of the singers were pretty horrible while some were pretty good. No real difference when singing on Rock Band and doing karaoke. It's all about having fun.
Rock Band is a lot more fun compared to Guitar Hero because you have the ability to play with 4 people at a time. The Guitar, Bass, Drums and Singer.
Rock Band is good for people that want to play as a team to beat a song mostly. It is good for a family or a group of friends. As for Guitar Hero III, it is meant for people who really like to do play the guitar. It is really easy to do hammer ons and pull offs on Guitar Hero III. For myself I think I would rather playing Rock Band because I like to play as a team to finish a song. I also like playing other instruments besides just the guitar and bass.

You do realize that Rock Band was developed by Harmonix and is only distributed by EA, right? It's not that EA is copying the makers of Guitar Hero, the makers of Guitar Hero are using EA to distribute their new product.
anyone have any idea if or when rock band will be coming out for the wii?
Rock band, just because it includes the drum set!
