It has today been confirmed that Neil Patrick Harris, star of hit U.S. sitcom How I Met Your Mother, will be appearing as a playable character. Wait, what? That’s not NPH? Oops, sorry about that it turns out that it’s not NPH, it’s someone else. Hit the jump to find out who it is.

It may look like NPH has made his way into a music rhythm game, but in fact it is former Police frontman Sting. It was rumored a few months back that Sting would be appearing in the game and now it has finally be confirmed.

It’s cool that Guitar Hero has some pretty cool additions on the celeb front, but does this mean we’ll never see any more Police songs in Rock Band? Hopefully not because, although i’ll be picking up World Tour, i’m still backing Rock Band 2 more.

Sting joins Ozzy Osbourne, Travis Barker, Jimi Hendrix, Billy Corgan, Hayley Williams and Zak Wylde as a playable character in Activision’s latest forray into music games. Even though there are some great people here (especially Hendrix) I think I prefer having my own character and a ‘fantasy’ band rather than real life rockers. I don’t know why, I just do.

Speaking to Eurogamer Sting had this to say:

I tried to play Guitar Hero and I’m not very good. My kids can do it.

We tend to hear that a lot.
