Marty McFly would be so excited to visit actual 2015, where he can finance a virtual guitar through his phone company. The future is now! Rejoice!

2 external controllers + the siri remote. Seems like a software limitation that could easily be lifted though.
Don't be THAT GUY who has too many friends over and hands the poor sob that he likes the least the ****** MadCatz controller (or in this case, the Apple TV remote)

Kinda feels like a sellout type deal. For some reason I have a feeling it will have terrible support vs the console versions. I like what Harmonix is doing and making a music rhythm game specifically designed for the new AppleTV.

I guess we'll see, though I'm personally planning in investing in RockBand 4 for my Xbox One. This could be great, but knowing Guitar Heros history...we'll see.
