Lego Rock Band and Band Hero: Compatibility

This is going to be a quick post. According to this blog’s user statistics, a lot of people have been interested in knowing if the Lego Rock Band and Band Hero games are going to have compatibility issues.

Well, for older games you can check the Instrument Compatibility Matrix right here at Joystiq.

According to Traveller’s Tales’ boss Jonathan Smith, Lego Rock Band will work with all current Guitar Hero controllers.

As for the reverse, well, I don’t know yet. But be sure to bookmark the Harmonix compatibility chart, as I’m sure Harmonix will update us on this one. I’m guessing they will all be completely compatible, but it doesn’t hurt to be careful.

As usual, just keep in mind that Guitar Hero controllers have that slide area for tapping notes, which the Rock Band guitar doesn’t. Personally, I don’t care, but just remember that when you decide on which peripherals you wanna buy.

BIG EDIT:

Please follow this newer post for newer information on the compatibility of the peripherals.
