Additionally, "Activision has revealed that GHIII features more master recordings than ever before".

Some other interesting info for those too lazy to click on the link, ;-):

"Guitar Hero III will be available on PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii and will feature an abundance of new modes, including a multiplayer action-inspired battle mode, boss battles, unlockable content and authentic rock venues.

More importantly, wannabe rock gods can get their fingers in a twist with the all-new wireless guitar controllers, with the Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3 getting the Gibson Les Paul and PS2 the proud recipient of a Gibson Kramer. What's more, the guitars will have removable faceplates that allow fans to personalise their guitars, plus they'll include a new button colour design for "an even greater authentic feel and rock experience".

In addition Guitar Hero III will include an expanded online multiplayer in which axe-shredders worldwide can compete in head-to-head battles to prove they're the ultimate rock legend."

i don't think ill ever be more than a 'medium difficulty' guitar hero.....4 buttons is enough for me to be good at it and have fun playing the songs


when i go to hard, the songs speed up and they add the 5th button....it its a major curve to overcome....i haven't been playing it as much lately so that makes it difficult to adapt too....

great game though.

i hear ya man, I am just barely able to get some songs to 4 starts on medium.

Besides when i get done playing a song. Things in the room seem to be slowly waving like a flag LOL

I never played past hard on the second one since I didn't buy it, just played at a friends. the first one, though, after I played for awhile I only played on expert. IMO it is so much more fun since you are strumming to every note and you get to play some of the more subtle parts.

It is a tough curve but it's completely worth it. It adds a lot to the game to play it on hard or expert IMO. You should consider giving it another shot. I don't think you'll be sorry.

I'm not sure they have to worry too much about it at this point. They don't really have to change anything to get people to buy this game, just add better songs

Guitar Hero I Final Song - Ozzy Osbourne - Bark at the Moon
Guitar Hero II Final Song - Lynyrd Skynyrd - Free Bird

and I really hope Stairway to Heaven isn't the final song for III.

It doesn't seem like that song would be hard enough to be the last song.

I've been thinking the exact same thing, they really need to show the Who some love.

I think the songs they announced are alright but not great. I'm psyched for Paint It Black. Slow Ride should be good in cheesy sort of way. Muse is a pretty solid band. The other stuff doesn't really catch my attention.

I'm gonna be broke come this fall. NCAA, Madden, GH III, Halo 3, Mass Effect, GTA IV all look like must buys at this point.

That is what I can't wait for. Does anyone have a link to the announced songs for that yet?

ETA: ****! I just read that the 80's game is only coming out for the PS2. :mg: Now I'm depressed! :fire:

- School's Out - Alice Cooper



Those are the ones I like although I would've choosen another song like 'Buddy Holly' or 'Beverly Hills' (not sure if those are the exact song names) from Weezer...

I see they are up to their usual get whatever song from a band even if its not that popular which IMO is lame.

I feel if your going to get major bands then get the best stuff. One excellent example is that Aerosmith song in GH2.

Dont sweat it too much since they didnt leave out the possibility of having downloadable tracks from that game...

For the price of ....YOUR SOUL...:lol:

Seriously, those DL content packs are way overpriced.

May 30, 2007 - There was no way that the Guitar Hero franchise could continue to break all sales expectations and not get noticed by the big dogs of the business world. RedOctane and Harmonix, the two teams responsible for the hit franchise, got snatched up by Activsion and MTV respectively thus ending their partnership for future Guitar Hero games. Of course, we haven't heard the last of Axel Steel or Johnny Napalm. Activision put the development in the able hands of Neversoft, a team best known for the Tony Hawk series.

Neversoft's driving philosophy behind Guitar Hero III (http://xbox360.ign.com/objects/899/899096.html) is a simple one: Give the fans what they want. That means the development team won't rock the boat too hard, staying true to the gameplay first laid out by Harmonix. But it also means that more of the songs and features we've all been clamoring for will finally make it in.

The song list has been carefully picked to meet the wishlists that have littered the internet since Guitar Hero was first released on PS2. More of the songs will be master tracks rather than covers. New multiplayer modes have been confirmed. A wireless controller is on the way. In short, you can put your fears aside. This is the same Guitar Hero we've all come to know and love. It looks a little different and has a few new fancy bells and whistles to get you excited all over again, but it's still Guitar Hero.
