    I read that yesterday. What a bunch of douche bags. How the fuck is that different then the 360 GH3 guitars working on RB?

    That is pretty lame. I would think having the GH3 guitar compatible would HELP their product sell. Some people seem to prefer their guitar over the Rock Band one.

    Hopefully they cave with enough negative press.

    Total BS. I don't see what Activision hopes to gain from this.

    Rarrrrrrr! OUTRAGE! COMPLAINING! Rarrrrr.......

    Wait, I've got the 360 version, why should I complain?

    Still, it's a pretty stupid move from Activision and even stupider that Sony listens.

    Smart business move Activision.

    Let's see, I bought Rock Band for my PS3.
    I really want another guitar so I'll buy Guitar Hero III.
    That way I can use that guitar with Rock Band and still get play Guitar Hero III.
    Oh wait, the controller for GH3 won't work with Rock Band so I won't buy GH3 after all.


    Oh yeah and: OUTRAGE!!!

    PS3 owners can't catch a break, that's just being petty.

    Even though I have the 360 version, i feel real bad for you PS3ers. There's letter/email writing, angry phone calls, and boycott talks aplenty being discussed over at the Official Rock Band Forums.

    ARRGGG GRRRRR ARRGGGGGG,

    Well I wasn't planning on getting the game anyway, on any system (in fact, I'm finally buying Gears of War tonight), but still...

    ARRGGG GRRRRR ARRGGGGGG

    Coop, dude. Let's do some COOP!

    Also, if you play on Hardcore, you get the Achievements for Normal and Hardcore at the same time.

    If you play on Insane...

    Hells yes man, I'd be up for some Coop. I've always wanted this game (since I played it at a friend's). But I got my Xbox when Halo came out, then a couple of PS3 games and then Mass Effect, so I'm finally getting the chance to play it. And everything I have ever seen on it is a peace of beauty.

    Wireless v Wired dude.

    Glad I didn't buy GH3. The controller is solid but I don't like the song list.

    I was pissed when I learned the 360 RB guitar would not work with GH2 and 3. I've gotten quite good at the guitar now, thanks to the small frets near the base of the neck on the RB guitar. I could barely pass a song in hard with the GH guitar, but with the RB one, it's cake!

    I honestly don't expect this decision to last long. The public outcry of "Bullshit!" will be too much for them to take.

    Of course, this could just be wishful thinking on my part.
