Activision has announced the list of on-disc songs which can be imported into Guitar Hero 5 from earlier Guitar Hero games. A small fee (280 Microsoft Points on Xbox 360, $3.50 on PS3 and 350 Wii Points on Wii) allows owners of Guitar Hero World Tour to import 35 of the game's 85 on-disc tracks.

Yeh, his full name is Neon 'This Is My Real Name' Kelly.

Thanks all the same, I'm on 360 yeh. I'm not all that bothered really, there's a dozen or so tracks that I'd actually want to play from WT, and it's only £25 if I'm desperate. And the only way I'll get GH5 is if I win MotM and don't have to pay for it :D

It is possible to use the lovefilm trick Woffls if you want me to provide you with my GH4 code :P I certainly won't be importing them, not for that price anyway.

EDIT: Actually you're using it for 360 right so disregard this post then. XD Like Neon (is that really his name?) I shouldn't post when tired.

You couldn't do the LoveFilm trick, but I presume you could buy World Tour and Greatest Hits, grab the code from the manuals and then sell the games?

It would be a hassle, and you'd lose a bit of cash, but it wouldn't be too bad.

**EDIT** I just realised that Pb pretty much suggested this in his first post, which I didn't read properly. Sorry - I shouldn't go on the forums when i'm tired.

I assumed it would be the same as the way Rock Band handled it, I'm pretty sure that didn't need a code.

jtorry@ Woffls

you need a code on the back of the manual, so this won't be possible.

It's good to know that, if I buy Guitar Hero 5, I can just get LOVEFiLM to send World Tour and Greatest Hits to me so I can grab the songs and put them on my hard drive :D
