If you picked up Activision's Guitar Hero World Tour over the weekend and noticed that the drums don't seem quite right, it might not *just* be that you suck.
According to message boards across the Internets, users are reporting that hitting the drum (hard or soft) is not always registering as a hit in the game. The drums are velocity-sensitive - meaning that the harder you hit them the louder the drum "note" should be in the game... but according to some users some hits don't register at all.
If you are one of the few who've experienced this issue, don't fret. Activision is all over it, and are reportedly preparing to release a 'drum tuning kit'. No word yet on what this 'kit' will do, though its likely that it would allow users to tune drum sensitivity.
The full statement from Activision's Support Center (via GameDaily) is below:
"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.
"Our goal would be to immediately address any hardware issues Guitar Hero World Tour players have with the game. Consumers should visit the Activision Publishing customer support website at www.activision.com/support website or call 310 255-2050 in the U.S. where a customer care representative will assist them. Activision is fully committed to the highest quality manufacturing standards, and to satisfying every Guitar Hero World Tour fan so they can enjoy the best musical gaming experience ever created."
