well, i just bought GHIII, and despite all the good things ive said about the wireless controller before (my brother's was the one i was playing, it works great), my wireless controller is borked :(

so, i gotta return it. turns out, when i hit the red and green and strum, it activates the yellow even though its not pressed.

well, ive been lucky with things in the past (like my CPU that OC's 500 MHz) so i cant really complain. only problem is the game is sold out all over where i live, so im gonna have to wait...

well, you win some, you lose some heh :(

LOL

i had to look up what Frets on Fire is. omg thats freaking great lol.


on another note, the fact that you cant have a guest on CoD4 on XBL kind of makes me mad though. :(

That was something I was afraid of when I bought my copy of GH3. Turns out alright though in the end.

Ya, the guitars are pretty weak

I've spent a week trying to find Guitar Hero for the X360, and there they go blending one. At least they didn't ruin a beautiful wireless one

You can play GH3 on the 360 with the GH2 guitars, if that makes it any easier finding the game.

yes, but i dont want to spend $120 for the game (60) and another controller (60) when i can get a wireless and the game for $90 :(

Agreed. My plan is to get the GHIII with wireless for 90, then buy GHII standalone for 40 and use the wireless for that if I enjoy GHIII enough

Still no luck finding it for the X360- every online store sold out, and I'm up to 10 different stores in 3 different counties with no luck yet

yep, every store in my area is sold out too.

the Best Buy near me had about 50 Rock Band copies in stock. maybe i should have gotten one of those instead. :o

Rock Band owns. Get it.

Except that it's a lot easier than GH3. The drums aren't a good enough addition for the extra 80 bucks when the guitar won't be as fun either

Plus, if you're going to get Rock Band, you might as well get GH3 too so you'll have the extra controller to use

Rock Band is easier than GH3, but not necessarily by a ton. It compares to Guitar Hero 2.

And if you have a PS3, DO NOT get GH3 just for the guitar. The GH3 guitar does not work with the PS3 version of Rock Band...and Harmonix basically said they have no intention of making it work.
Ya, although I assume that will be fixed via update within the next few weeks

I ended up ordering the X360 GH3 bundle package after finally finding it available online somewhere. It was 130, but with free shipping and no tax it ends up only 20 bucks more than the regular package would be with tax, and having rechargeable batteries might be nice

Rock Band already has quite a few DC available, I hope GH3 keeps up
