With the release of Guitar Hero 5, owners of Guitar Hero World Tour and Greatest Hits (aka Smash Hits) can export a selection of songs to be used in Guitar Hero 5, but the problem is “how do you actually do it?” – Well ive written a small guide showing you how to do it below.
To Start with 38 (out of a possble 86) tracks can be exported from Guitar Hero World Tour, and 21 tracks (out of a possible 48) tracks can be exported from Guitar Hero Greatest Hits – now both these fail in comparison to the “Rock Band 1” export which exported all except 3 songs and had a price of 400 MS. The Guitar Hero exportation comes in at abit more expensive (if you were to export both games) , to export the songs from World tour it costs 280 MS, to export the songs from Greatest Hits it costs 160 MS, so thats 440 MS for 59 tracks, 280 for 38 tracks or 160 for 21 tracks.
To find out which tracks are exported to your consoles hard drive you will have to visit the official guitar hero website, also this exportation system works on Xbox 360, PS3 and Nintendo Wii, but whats different from the Rock Band export system is that the actual disc is not needed as everything is downloaded from the internet (well it is on the Xbox 360 version).
Before we begin the “Export” process you must have the following things:
* Guitar Hero 5 Game
* Guitar Hero World Tour / Greatest Hits Manual
* Xbox Live GOLD Subscription / PSN Account / Wii Account
* Microsoft Points / Nintendo Points / PSN Money
Once you have the following things you should start up Guitar Hero 5 and go to the “Main menu” and not the “party play” that starts up automatically, then go to “options” and “Import songs” (as shown below):
