GH: Greatest Hits renamed Smash Hits?

Activision won't tell us.

Activision has declined to comment on "rumour and speculation" that Guitar Hero: Greatest Hits will be renamed Guitar Hero: Smash Hits.

A big picture of the box art on Kotaku suggests this will be the case.

Greatest/Smash Hits - for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii and PS2 - compiles all the best tracks from the Guitar Hero series: that means songs from I, II, Rocks the 80s and III.

There are other improvements packed in: the Music Studio, GHTunes and Rock Star Creator from Guitar Hero World Tour, plus the Expert+ difficulty from the upcoming Metallica instalment, and of course support for World Tour's drums and microphone.

There will be no new peripherals, however, and we only have a partial track list to show you.

Greatest/Smash Hits will be out some time this summer. Before then, we'll be offered Guitar Hero: Metallica, which Activision told us this morning would be out in "late May". An exact date will be nailed down soon.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
