Fret Nice coming to Xbox Live and PS3!
News posted 23rd February, 2010 by Jon Lambert  
Oh noes! I barely post news as it is, with all my secret projects I'm working on and such, and now I don't even have one of those nifty YouTube videos to insert! :O Oh well! This is big enough news! Anyone else remember the Fret Nice game released so long ago by Mårten? The platformer with the Guitar Hero controller? Well, it looks like the game has been remade and will hit the mainstream on Xbox Live and Playstation Network in the first quarter of 2010!

Comments from Pieces Interactive: ROCK OUT WITH YOUR PANTS OUT! Rock on and harmonize the unity between music and 2D platformer! As you control your character through the artful stages, you play the game as if it was a jammin’ rock song. Blast your enemies with riff combos and create your own soundtracks with each “strum” of a chord. You will have an ever-changing experience each time a stage is repeated.

Thanks to Jason Orme for bringing up this news! And 200 points to whoever can first provide the original game for upload to the DC servers to fix the broken download page!

That is pretty cool

Lol, I had the original game, but deleted it after I found out it's not playable on a joystick. Srsly, playable on only PC Guitar Hero controllers? I don't think more than 400 people in the world have that.

Well.. its playable with any wired guitar. I have a wired guitar hero guitar for Xbox 360 thats USB and works fine on the PC (windows even automatically installs the drivers)

I thought it was already out on PS3. Silly me.

PSN or PS3?
Posted by Jon Lambert 23rd February, 2010

Playstation Network is the platform by which games are digitally distributed to both the PS3 and PSP, but just as it is not compatible with the PSP and I did not put Xbox Live, I used PS3.

Wow congrats on getting it on the consoles, Huge effort and no doubt it will sell well as many are bored with guitar hero but want to make use of the guitar controller sitting in the corner.
Like me.

Um... well its not been getting brilliant scores on most websites... around the 6/10 mark... and a particularly harsh review here:

Still, whatever you say, getting a game onto Xbox Live / PSN Network is an achievement in itself so nice stuff, Mr Red Feud creator

You read this too, Chris?

its really funny how everybody complained about how the game would only work with a guitar hero controller and none of us has one of those - including myself since i hate guitar hero and i am glad my fellows on the dc seem to agree with me.

seriously what is up with guitar hero and rock band? its pretty much the same game over and over and over and over again just with different songs and worst thing: all the idiots BUY THOSE GAMES!

good lord

oh well there are some improvements in rock band like everybody can play instruments together now...great...

anyways you get my idea. back to this game.

so SADLY the download link of the original game seems to be OFFLINE now which is a shame since i would have liked to download it and maybe get a guitar from somewhere. you could once get one from the Activision site for free because there was a bug on their page lol (sadly UK only).

so anyways we all complained we cant play this game and look at him now- he is making money with it. we suck lol didnt give the guy much support and now he seems big. i just remember knytt stories who is super big as well but didnt find much love an the dc and then went all emo about people on here and never came back. oh well lol
