Rockband 2 vs Guitar Hero World Tour

Hey Guitar game fans!

I have a question.

Does anyone know if the drum controllers for these games are going to be cross compatible?

I have all of the Guitar Hero games leading up to now, save the Aerosmith one, and I have Rockband, but never bought the full kit.

I wanted to get the full kit now, but am waiting for the bundle version of Rockband 2 so that I don't spend more money than I have to.

Should I buy the Rockband 2 bundle, or the Guitar Hero bundle coming out?

The GH:WT drum controller puts the orange button on a cymbal. I imagine you can either kick the bass pedal or hit the cymbal for the orange note. RB2's standard controller maps the orange button just to the kick drum. So the GH:WT controller should give more flexibility.

The instruments are cross compatible on Xbox 360 and PS3.

The aftermarket RB2 controller has the extra cymbal.

I have GH:WT and the drum kit on there is awesome. The rubber used to silence the hits is useful too, because you don't get all the "clint" and "tututut" from the old RB drums. I don't know how RB2's ones are, but i already have the GH:WT anyway. I hope this helps.
