Rock Band Doesn't Care for Les Paul

IGN writes:

"Sad news PS3 owners. Though we were lead to believe otherwise, the Guitar Hero III wireless Les Paul does not work with the PS3 version of Rock Band. After plugging in the GHIII dongle, you will discover that Rock Band in fact accepts the guitar inputs in the main menu. Don't be fooled. Rock Band recognizes the GHIII guitar merely as a controller (not a guitar) and will ask you to plug in a USB mic to continue. There is no option to force Rock Band to recognize the Les Paul controller as a guitar. The reasoning for this is unclear, since the GHIII controller works fine with Rock Band on Xbox 360."

Well then will the rock band guitar work with guitar hero 3?

PS3 version of the rockband bundle still gets a wireless controller

Since they aren't selling the guitars seperately yet, PS3 owners can't have 2 people playing a guitar and a bass at the same time. The bundle only comes with 1 guitar... so they are screwed, having only 3 instruments. 360 owners can just use their GH3 guitars as the bass.

What does this have to do with EA?

Distributor, but it was developed by Harmonix and published by MTV Games.

Distributor of rock band = Electronic Arts

And in case you can't read, the reason the GH 3 guitar doesn't work is because Activision blocked it at the dongle. Same reason the Rock Band guitars wont work on Guitar Hero 3...Activision blocked them from working on both the 360 and PS3 versions.

So in the end blame Red Octane/Activision. Not Harmonix and EA their game accepts other parties controllers, and the problem lies in GH3's dongle from Activision.
