    Hi guys. I'm wanting to get Rock Band, but I'm not sure which system to get it for. Are any of the perifferals wireless? If not, how do you hook them all up to the 360? Is there any difference between the 2 versions? Which one do most of you guys own it on? Thanks.

    No 360 peripherals are wireless. All USB, and there's a USB hub for four instruments at once. PS3 has a wireless Strat guitar.

    The 360 has downloadable songs. I'm not sure about the PS3. It probably has them, but I'm not sure. If it does, both versions are identical, except for the aforementioned wireless guitar.

    I personally own the 360 version, and I know a few other guys here do too, such as Buzzbeak, DevilzFan, Trekain, and some other guys.

    Both 360 and PS3 have DL content.

    360 USB Hub requires it's own power supply (=paininthe***).

    Hub not *required* unless you need more ports than you have, of course.

    360 GHIII controller works with 360 RB.

    PS3 GHIII does not work with PS3 RB.

    For the time being (has this changed?) PS3 Guitar Hero guitars do not work with Rock Band. Thats not the case with 360.

    360 has voice chat over XBL, cant do this on PS3

    Well, whatever you get it for, get ready to be enawesomated by its spectacularacity.

    Got it for the 360, haven't even unlocked all the songs yet though. It's on my brother's 360, so I haven't played it a whole lot solo yet.

    Because it's something extra you have to plug in and manage and I don't have a nearby outlet for it. The only place I can put it, the wire is very obtrusive and sticks out. It's another wire I have to account for (and I have many) and another one to take care of to not lose track of. I've used it exactly once, to test it out. It's very, very inconvenient in my set up. Better than nothing and, I'm not speaking for everyone, obviously, but for me it's a pain. :(

    Most are as faulty as the Strat's strum bar.

    I find the special edition box set is much easer to find for the 360 as well whereas the PS3 version seems to be non-existent, at least in my neck of the woods.

    I was going to pick this up this weekend for the 360 but it is out of stock at all the Best Buys in the area :(  (Plenty of copies for the PS2 & 3 though).

    Oh well, just more time to put in to Assassin's Creed.

    Rock Band is intermitently uneasy to find, but there hasn't been a shortage ala GHIII around here.

    Oh yeah, Metallica "...And Justice For All" FTMFW!!!! :rock 

    Yeah, Harmonix even made a patch, which Activision cock-blocked. Super weak move. I don't gave GHIII but it just seemed good business to let the patch go through.

    Dude at work has a PS3 and bought GH# before getting Rock Band just so he would be set up and ready to go with a second guitar and was PISSED when he found out it didn't work.

    I was able to find a copy at the TRU near me on Sunday.

    I am so in love with the band VAGIANT now. I bought their album the next day after playing "Seven."

    Woah. I found that to be the most annoying song in the game.

    Not me. I have a soft spot for punk rock chicks that sound like they would fuck my brains out then kick my ass out the door right after. And most of the songs on their album are pretty much all about kicking someone's ass or fucking someone's brains out. :D
