Not exactly. We’ve reinvented Guitar Hero from the ground up for Guitar Hero Live. The guitar-shaped controller is new, the perspective of the game is new, and the curated video section called GHTV is brand new. If you’ve never played a Guitar Hero game before you’ll find this new game easier to get into as a beginner. If you’re a Guitar Hero veteran you’ll discover all new ways to play.
The new Guitar Hero Live controller's been completely reworked from top to bottom. We've altered the number of buttons and changed quite a few other things as well. Check out The New Guitar Hero Live Controller to get the whole scoop.
Gone are the cartoon-like avatars of you and your bandmates. You’ll now play the game in a first-person perspective where you get to rock out on stage with your bandmates in front of live crowds. Depending on how well you do, both your band and the crowd will react to you in real time, showing their appreciation or tossing cups and bottles your way. Your bandmates, on the other hand, will let you know in no uncertain terms whether you’re a good addition to the group or whether you might need to have a “conversation” after the show.

The difference now is that there are a number of unique powers available to employ.
