Guitar Hero III PC
 
I'm debating getting this for teh wifey, but I have a few things holding me back.

Do the 360 controllers work on the PC version?

The box recommended specs are Core 2 or AMD 4400x2 and a 8800 card. Would my HTPC (sig) be able to run it properly?

The PC version has been criticized for having very high system requirements, but still suffering from lag and slowdowns, even on high-end systems with the graphics tuned down to a minimum,[57] supposedly due to the PC version being a near-direct port of the Xbox 360 version.

My 360 is connected to the same LCD as my HTPC, so which version would be best to get? I'm going on the idea that the PC version will be modable (at some point) and many custom songs could become available.

I wouldn't count on it being modable.

Not all PC games are. Plus, every review I have read says that its a crappy port anyway. I was thinking of getting it but it just sounds like it'd suck. I've also read that they give you an older version of the guitar. Probably the one from GH2 rather than GH3 (which is retarded).

If I had a 360 I would just get it for that. If it ever becomes modable or for some reason they decide to patch it so it runs better on PC, you can always get it later and you'll already have a good guitar.

Some good points.

I was just wondering if some on the forum may have it and could give some feedback. The one review I looked at was gamespy which they said a Core2, 2gb, 8800 system suffered from stutters during the beginning of the song. They didn't go into more detail on the system such as OS or anything. I'm wondering if they used Vista perhaps and the game may run a bit better under XP?

The guitar is the wired one you get with GH2 from the 360. You can enable the GH3 wireless one, I think you need the wireless adapter for PC though.

I guess if I get it, I might as well put out the extra $20 and get the 360 version with wireless. I was hoping the PC version would be good though and that I could add in unofficial songs down the road through a mod or something cause the wife doesn't care for a lot of the ones that come with it.

Get GH3 on 360 then just download Frets on Fire for PC. Best of both worlds. :)

look up some vids on youtube, its pretty cool, best of all its free :D

Crainger said his guitar hero controller worked on it(I just use a keyboard cuz I'm lazy). I know that you can download your guitar hero songs to this as well and they will work.

this is one of my favorites :D

Yup, just plug in the GH2 controller OR the GH3 controller if you have the wireless dongle. Works great.

Then watch the fake vids of people on youtube playing impossible songs. :rolleyes:

Yes. I wish my penis and balls combo was small enough to fit in my pants.
