RedOctane has released a fix for Guitar Hero World Tour's faulty drums. That's the good news. The bad news? The fix requires a PC (Windows XP/Vista) and a midi-USB cable.
While it's nice that the company is providing a solution, a more user-friendly method would have been preferred. I'm guessing most of you don't have a midi-USB cable lying around. It looks like RedOctane will be providing the cable, though the site requires you to fill out a support ticket to get "information about how to obtain that cable." Instead of dolling out lord-knows-how-much money to A-Rod, Kobe, Tony Hawk, and Michael Phelps, perhaps Activision should have allocated more funds to QA so that this issue never popped up. It's fun looking through the retroscope, isn't?
If anyone has tried this fix, please leave a comment about your experience. A lot of people would like to know how it worked out for you.
