Guitar Hero goes massive multiplayer

A new service that aims to become the web equivalent of the hyper-successful Guitar Hero and Rock Band games has emerged – and is currently in beta testing.

Unlike those games, of course, the online equivalent, JamLegend, doesn’t require a games console. The company behind the game hopes to entice labels and artists into making music available for players to use in the game.

Wait – there’s more, in a new twist on the genre, the game will also support massive multiplayer online battles between huge numbers of players, along with the obligatory social networking features – not least integration with existing social networking services.

Enough explanation – here’s the video.
