Sad but true folks. A design flaw with the new Les Paul controller means that it may be almost impossible to grab all of the achievements from the Xbox 360 version. And the PS3 version? It suffers the same problems apparently.
I bought my copy of Guitar Hero in Wal-Mart at launch and they had the controller from gh2 bundled with it for some reason, i bought it anyways, i felt like i should've waited and gotten the les paul, but after reading this i feel a whole lot better. I haven't had a problem with any of my two x-plorer guitars, even the one i got with gh2, STICK WITH THE X-PLORER IF POSSIBLE
after reading this id just like the game itself since i already have a guitar from gh2
the ps2 and 360 versions both have versions of the game themselves. Just like GH4 will be avaible seperately on the ps3/wii versions aswell due to the fact that ps3/wii owners may already have a guitar
Well the PS3 version anyways. My score almost doubled :) Yay!
I was having that problem with ALL of the frets at random times...before it just stopped syncing with my PS3 entirely. I was waiting for an email response, but it takes 10!!!???! business days to reply to and my warranty expires on the 30th. Now I look up their number. monday through friday only. No holidays. Boy I hope I can get them tomorrow or the 26th-29th, because 10 days is just rediculous.(BTW, I sent the email on the 16th, still no response.)
After this I might just screw it and get RockBand.
Unless having to replace the batteries once a month is a problem. Maybe i'm not being hard enough on my guitar... I don't know. It's my rock band guitar i'm more frustrated with. The damn tilt sensor for overdrive doesn't respond 70% of the time. Very annoying when you are trying to save your partner and end up failing because the damn guitar didn't recognize that you were tilting your guitar with all your might.
If most of the guitars are affected They'll have to do something about it or possibly face a class action lawsuit from thousands of people.
I had a friend that had this same problem for the 360 version. Being a tech by trade, he open the guitar and saw the same problem. His first email response from red octane was the standard, "sorry your guitar is no longer under warranty." After sending a few more emails, he got a response stating that they have reviewed his situation and will send him a new guitar.
i mean whats so good about it just go make up a REAL band with u'e m8s instead of beinglaze and saying yay im good at this game look at me i can do guns of rosses song who hoo go doit on a real gutar?
espcially HOLIDAY SHOPPERS and SPENDERS
besides not everyone has enough time to learn how to play a guitar and start a band.
but most of all, its buying a product that maybe flawed. dont think of it as a game but a PRODUCT THAT IS SUPPOSE TO WORK
Just curious, but do you know how expensive a good guitar is?
Here's a hint, its a heckuva lot more than a PS3 and a few games.
this week. Maybe I'll hold off until Guitar Hero 4? =/
It's okay, GH4 is coming out in a few months anyway!
(just buy Rock Band)
My guitar does the same and it's very frustrating. VERY.
I'VE YET TO HAVE ANY PROBLEMS. I HAVE THE XPLORER TOO AND YES THAT FEELS NICE BUT I LOVE THE LES PAUL ESPECIALLY SINCE IT'S WIRELESS. SO SO FAR SO GOOD ON MY END. AND TO PRISMO...ROCK BAND ON THE OTHER HAND HAS GIVEN ME ISSUES THOUGH. MAYBE SOME PEOPLE PLAY THE GAME TOO MUCH?
Iv never had a problem with my wireless guitar from guitar hero3..... I like the feeling of the newer guitar over the xplorer
GH3 broke the day Rock Band hit store shelves. Activision knows it and is hanging by a thread by not allowing Harmonix to release the controller compatibility patch. Activision = EA. Greedy whores.
I have every GH game and they all gather dust while I play RB.
...buy a copy of Rock Band instead - but it doesn't go on sale in the UK until March 2008.
remember that story that went up a while ago compairing the gamer scores for GH3 for all the different consols wii.360/and PS3? I said that for some reason the wii version was easier. I thought it was dumbed down. As it turns out all along it was a fault in the controls of the PS3 and 360 version. I don't know about the 360 version but They recently updated the PS3 version with a patch, and now my score is doubled. This makes me very happy because not only is it more fun,but I now I know I don't suck.
Will the Guitar Hero 3 guitar/controllers work with Rock Band?
No they don't, I tried it.
I really hate the Les Paul, the PS2 controller was so much better.
The game sucked something terrible anyway. (In my opinion)
So I'm going to take it back to walmart on the 26 even tho I bought it like 3 months ago...I know they'll take it.
this article is wrong, it's not the holes in the wire. go to www.scorehero.com forum's that place has everything. the fix for this issue is really friggin easy.
Hopefully this doesn't become the norm. DEVS rushing out partial games because they can patch it later. When GT2 was bugged DEVS couldn't just write an update to patch the game. They instead had to send everyone a fully remastered CD.
It's sad if buggy incomplete software makes it to consoles. Whatever happened to the high standards that devs once maintained? Now that we have the Internet and ability to patch every mistake missed by the quality control it appears to be being abused. Lately it seems like devs aren't being as professional.
If you receive a game that fails to run its basic features, IMHO your paying to beta test.
Some games just have to be released by the set date that the publisher has told them to, whether the game is broken or not. Money is how the world goes round and spending millions and maybe a couple more is not that viable for publishers who want a quick buck.
