OHHH NOOO, this is the worst. My life is going to end due to this news. I have to endur the .2 seconds it takes to plug a usb cord into my PS3 in order to use my *wireless* guitar for Guitar Hero 3. This is not sarcasm, I'm seriously heart-broken. My life is shattered. Oh, the despair. Will I ever recover? :p
this is friking lazy, nuff said...
there are 4 usb connections....just keep two free for the damn receivers or what ever they are.....you still got two free to recharge your PS3 controllers.....lame article.
BY MY HAND I CREEP ACROSS THE LAND KILLING FIRST BORN MAN DIE man great name! I started head banging anyway on point!! Get real
lol is this article serious. so what if the ps3 guitar, like the 360's, wasnt wireless. real electric guitars have wires from them anyway.
argument of a closed system on 360 so that wireless controllers couldn't be made, Even octane had to do it with the ps3. but I think id be more of a problem with the faults inherent in bluetooth, and not a closed system.
this is just as wireless as GH1 and 2 on the PS2. All you're doing is plugging in a receiver, just like on the PS2. Any wires on the guitar? Nope.
OMFG! THAT IS TERRIBLE....not. that IS wireless retard.
Idiot fat lazy boy who is complaining. Buy a connection with more USB entries so you stop crying
Is the 360 Guitar fully wireless, or does it also use a USB dongle?
well i really dont care cause im getting rock band for my ps3 and the guitar will be fully wireless
Rockband also has a USB dongle, but I know the 360 version bundle is wired.
the 360 one is wired. confirmed already.
Wonder why they couldn't use the blutooth......Its already been stated that the 360s wireless technology is too expensive to work with so I believe the 360 version is wired. Either way, if this is the only gripe so far, im spent. Cant wait! :]
What the hell people complaining if wire or not? Quick question... Does Real guitars(Rock band's) have bluetooth or have a wire?
PS3's Rocband is the same as GH3, wireless with the USB dongle. The 360 bundle is wired.
So you didn't want to pay the licensing fee for Bluetooth or try to make it so you just set it for the LOWEST COMMON DENOMINATOR and make it USB. GRR.
Just read this on Gamespot, they're blaming it on time constraints: "Guinchard explained to GameSpot that time constraints forced RedOctane to go with the dongle route on the PS3, but he hopes to eventually replace the controller with a dongle-free version after the holiday season." - http://www.gamespot.com/xbo...
This is still fine with me since the system has 4 USB ports (which equals 4 players at once, yay!), but I am curious.
Screw this, I'll just get Rock Band.
