GH5 in Not a Lott of controversy shocker

GH5 605

Shortly after 11am this morning in London’s Oxford Street, Britain’s own Pixie Lott was joined on stage by Inside Xbox’s SuperKaylo (on drums) and Eurogamer’s Johnny Minkley (on vocals) as well as a lucky competition winner to officially launch Guitar Hero 5 at HMV Oxford Circus not with a rendition of a Nirvana track unsurprisingly but Song 2 by Blur.

This kicked off the UK attempt to land the Guinness World Record for the largest number of participants in a single Guitar Hero session over a 24 hour period.  In addition to the UK, France, Italy, Sweden, Spain & Holland are vying for the record (at the time of writing we are being beaten by Italy)

We were there a little later and caught the above photo of the latest participants – Pure ROCK (Oh, wrong game)

If you want to preserve our British Guitar Hero pride make sure you visit before 11am tomorrow when the attempt finishes.
