Or you could just buy the newest Official Xbox Magazine, or probably just wait a week and download it from the marketplace.

Title is misleading. Put the word "demo" somewhere in the title!

zomg, it's approved. once a story is approved the only thing you can do is add updates.

man seriously I actually thought they meant the whole game. What a misleading title, but thats good news for 360 gamers.

I keep getting "Demo does not work" and it says to download it again. I have the logo on my demo section and everything but i've tried it on 3 different discs. I don't know what to do.

This news is a little late to the party. I have been playing this for 3 days now...After searching franticly for the OXM 77 with the demo I was surprised that this worked but it is enough to hold me over till the 28th.

Download it Here....

For anyone having problems, This is where I got mine. It will take about 40min to an hour but I can guarantee this will work. After it downloads use imgburn (Free program, google it) Then just open the iso with imgburn and burn it to a CD-R or a DVD-R. I first burnt it to a CD-R but it took ages to load it up. The DVD-R is much better if you have access to a DVD burner.

After you insert the disc in your 360 it will say "Mixed media disc" DO NOT LOAD IT FROM THE DRIVE. Instead scroll over to the games blade and under "Demos and more" you will see the GH3 demo. Then just select it and jam.

Good luck getting by "The Metal" on Expert on a sightread...Triples will kick your ass at around 45%. Then again at about 65%. Great song though.

Nero worked for me
I was able to burn the iso from Nero 6.6. I wasnt too sure about how to play it and thought my burn was bad. So i went reading and found that i missed a step. Had to go into demos on the games blade and there it was.

I dont have the guitar so it took a bit of figuring but i was able to play using the controller.

Man I suck at rock you like a hurricane.

The megadownload.com link seems to have been swamped now.

Anyone else having problems with slow downloads can grab the file here


You do need to sign up for a free account but that only takes 10secs and it's worth it for the 400k/s speeds.
