Activision To Release “Drum Tuning Kit” For Faulty Guitar Hero: World Tour Drums

It seems that a large number of people are having issues with their new Guitar Hero: World Tour drum kits. The main issue is that the pads are either too sensitive, or not sensitive enough. This of course leads to notes registering when you didn’t hit the pad, or having to strike them really hard. Don’t worry though, we’ve got an official statement from Activision on the matter.

“We have learned that certain drum kit controllers manufactured for Guitar Hero World Tour have sensitivity issues. We believe that these controllers are limited to ones in the earlier manufacturing stages. While we believe that this was an isolated manufacturing issue, we are stepping our efforts to randomly test our drum kit controllers so customers can be assured they work properly. In the event any consumers do experience problems with their drum kit controllers associated with sensitivity issues, Activision will soon be offering a drum tuning kit that will enable players to fully optimize their drums.”

Yes folks, you read that right. You will need to tune your plastic instruments. I’m sorry, but that is seriously one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard. So you’re going to release a tool so that we can manually adjust the sensitivity of your instruments. I’m curious if this is going to be a physical tool, or some sort of software that we’ll be using.
