Wireless Guitar Hero controllers next month!

New colour, 60 dollars.

RedOctane has announced that it will release proper, official wireless Guitar Hero controllers in the US next month, and they'll cost just US$ 59.99.

They will be compatible with either Guitar Hero 1 or 2 (the latter's due out next month in the US and Europe), and we're assured that they use the same mechanism, and have been created to the same high quality as the wired Guitar Hero SG controllers.

They're also going to be white, we're told (I don't know why I did that in italics either), but it's not clear whether the actual shape has changed at all.

It's also yet to be confirmed whether the wireless controllers will be released in Europe, so we'll be nagging our friends at RedOctane on a daily basis until we know for sure.

"RedOctane has long been committed to offering high-quality videogame accessories for gamers," said Dusty Welch, head of publishing at RedOctane.

"Being able to give our fans an option to rock the wireless guitar controller was definitely a priority for us, and it'll provide another exciting experience for players to achieve rock star status!"

Look out for our Guitar Hero II review very soon, and in the meantime why not check out our extensive hands-on preview?
