Kurt Cobain to be a playable character in Guitar Hero 5

Late Nirvana frontman joins Guitar Hero 5

Activision has announced that Kurt Cobain will be appearing in Guitar Hero 5, and has revealed the first pictures and video of the rock icon to the public, all of which you can find in this article. Cobain will presumably only appear when the player chooses one of two Nirvana tracks--"Smells Like Teen Spirit" and a live recording of "Lithium. It's worth noting that Cobain is the only member of the band that appears to be in the game--bassist Krist Novoselic and drummer Dave Grohl do not appear to be backing Cobain in the media shown thus far.

Guitar Hero 5 comes out this Tuesday, September 1 on the PlayStation 2, PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
