Air guitar saves the world from asteroids

Looks like a new Guitar Hero air-guitar game is in the works for the Xbox 360, and they’ve got a new promotional video to prove it. It’s a kickass video for a game that, depending on who you ask, is either a ton of fun or an insidious attempt by Harmonix Music Systems to do to guitar playing what Karaoke Revolution did to singing—i.e., putting it in the hands of annoying nerds who tarnish it forever in the eyes of polite society. Speaking personally, I think the whole idea is cool, and judging by the proposed viral marketing campaign, I’ll be more than happy to play glorified air guitar along with this game when it comes out. Assuming they provide Sabbath.
