    It took a long time but I have seen spare GH2 guitars for the 360 in the stores lately. They are incredibly expensive though - 60 euros, about the price of a regular 360 game. I don't know if GH3 wireless guitars will be sold seperately as well but I think it will eventually happen. The only question is when they will be available - the spare GH2 guitars took a few months until you could buy them.

    Has it been reported anywhere as to whether the new wireless controller is backwardly compatible with GHII, as I will be purchasing GHIII and, for convenience purposes, may also pick up GHII - game only.

    Basically,

    1) Will this work?

    and

    2) At what cost...? :oS

    Cheers!

    They will work with GH2 just as GH2 controllers will work with GH3.

    Has anyone seen the price Game want for this now? 75 Quid!!! I thought the 70 I pre-ordered it at was bad (with th eps2 being 55 quid) but putting it up a fiver to 75 quid is taking the piss. God only knows what they will charge for a full Rock Band set.

    I'm still gonna buy it though.

    You get charged the lower price though - you know that, right?

    One of the many benefits to pre-ordering.

    Guys, can multiplayer games be set-up to be split screen? I.e. is it worth buying a second guitar, so two can be played at the same time?

    YES!

    Get a second guitar. Its a tremendous 2 player game.

    You can play:
    Face off (trade off solos)
    Pro Face off (play the entire song each)
    and the new Guitar battles

    You can also be on 2 different difficulties if you wish.

    The Guitar Battles sound good. I'm assuming they involve phsically smacking your opponent around the head with the guitar? No? Well, we'll see about that...

    No, but there can be quite a bit of name calling what with the nature of the battle mode. :)

    Oh yes I know, its more the fact they've raised an already ridiculous price to heights of ridiculousness hitherto unforeseen.

    How can the 360 version cost that much more than PS2? especially when they shall be bilking us for DLC anyways. Not as if the graphics are going to be particularly better on the 360 version either.

    Bit of advice please,
    never played this game before until the demo came out
    loved the demo so going to get it with the guitar.

    ASDA have it advertised on the website
    Guitar Hero 3: Legends Of Rock [Les Paul Guitar Controller] - XBox 360 £49.99
    only £5 more than the game by itself.

    just wondering why it seems so cheap as Iíve seen this package normally going for 64.99

    Is the guitar controller advertised in ASDA the proper one? and wireless?
  • Deleted user 18 November 2007 18:19:45
    I've pre-ordered mine from Amazon, they give me a £15 reduction for some unkown reason when I placed my order. So, including first class delivery, i'm getting it for under £52. Which is nice.

    I have to add, for all those that have pre-ordered and and loved GH2, you wont be disapointed!!

    Fricking love this game!

    Ordered the game only from Play-Asia for an equivalent of around £27, and arrived 2 weeks before UK release date (I think?)
