That photo above is a scan of Game Informer magazine's upcoming issue. It features Guitar Hero IV's drum peripheral. Check out those cymbals, man. Pretty hot. And five pads means extra fake-drumming fun.
Game Informer was fairly impressed with the layout, and so are we (at least how it looks). The placement of the ride cymbal in Rock Band's peripheral always seemed a problem, so we're glad to see that the drum kit corrects it.
No word yet. on whether the snazzy new buckets will work with Rock Band, of course.
(also, is this a good opportunity to make a "Gee? HIV!" joke?)
