So, I'm going to get one of them...but which one?

I'm thinking RB2 mainly because I want "Man in the Box"...but the GH drums look cool, I gotta try them.

GHWT drum pads felt great, cymbals were BAD, no bounce, flimsy, and would grab the stick out of your hand. I waited over a week for the tuning kit from activision cuz the yellow cymbal was not sensitive enough, this was after playing only 10 songs. Good thing my girl has a PC cuz I could not use their software on my MAC. After the tune up the drums worked great for about 10 more songs, then the blue pad stopped working entirely. Needless to say I was pissed. I lucked out at best buy cuz they had no stock on GHWT kit for 360. I traded for a GHWT guitar and game pack and a rock band 2 drum kit. Perfect trade cuz the new GH guitar is great, the finger tapping is intense. I'd say the new RB2 drums are way better than RB1 drums and GH drums. More bouncy, quieter, better pedal. If I were biased to one or the other game I would stick to that games drums, cuz the GH drums were starting to get fun with playing up high and low. It is WAY harder than RB style set up though. It has a much more confusing note structure. If the cymbals were worth a dam I might have considered waiting for new GH drums, but it was really hard to keep up with no bounce. The reason i'd stick to RB drums if I was a GH hater is cuz the RB note generator has you playing fast notes on that yellow cymbal all the time, whereas the Gh notes seem to go a little easier on your arms. If I was a RB hater I would stick with Gh drums cuz it does feel more realistic and the 3 main pads feel and sound great. I have always loved both games but leaned toward guitar hero cuz the notes were more fun to play and the songs were better. I was stuck in the ps2 world with no downloads. That being said I am now leaning RB2 cuz the note structure is getting better [more like GH] and the regular set list is way better never mind the 600 downloadable sons 100's of which kick but. I would still buy GH if I was a RB GH hater cuz of the metallica DLC alone, and that F'n finger tapping is the coolest thing yet.
The velocity sensitive thing was immediately noticeable on RB2 set were I had not noticed it on the GH set.
I like to hit the drums VERY hard. It felt great to let loose on the RB2 drums after dicking around with those F'n cymbals. It just seemed easier to kill the RB drums.
I hope the new RB cymbals will have some bounce to them.
I Ghwt finished in one night, RB2 seems to have 10 times more to it.
The GH music studio is very cool.
I hope all the babble helps someone choose the right set.

World Tour..... thats what I'm currently playing on my 360

Better track list and all tracks are MASTER RECORDINGS not covers like rock band.

Plus I absolutely can not stand those square notes..... they have to be round lol. But thats probably cause I have every GH game except aersomith and I'm just used to that.

The only thing RB has going for it is the downloads....... but supposedly there is going to be a ton a downloads released for GH in the near future.

Oh about the hardware..... the new giutars suck, the strum bar either doesn't click or has a very light click...... drives me nuts. Thats why I'm still using my black guitar from GH III, it has a good solid CLICK when you strum.
