Guitar Hero announcement next week?
According to a report posted and then pulled by Gamereactor UK, Activision has invited members of the German gaming media to an event next week (1 April) that seems likely to reveal the next Guitar Hero game. Remember, the expected revival has surfaced in other reports in recent weeks.
Activision’s series has been on ice since 2010, just like rival Rock Band, but the latter is coming back later this year with Rock Band 4 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Will a new Guitar Hero arrive right alongside it for another classic battle of the bands? It seems increasingly likely.
Facebook creating a phone dialer app?
Based on a pop-up note that appeared in the Facebook app, surely prematurely, it looks like the social networking juggernaut is working on its own phone dialer app (almost certainly for Android only).
Based on the description, it sounds like the app will use the network’s vast trove of data to tell you who’s calling, as well as automatically block calls from numbers that are frequently blocked by other users. Sounds like a smart set of perks, although we’ll have to see the actual app in question before we agree to give Facebook access to that part of our digital lives, as well.
