they did release a patch for the X306 version... it bricked your machine. Maybe you PS3 guys got lucky?

What else doesn't?

SlappingOysters4185d ago

nice 8-)

I'm on X360 number 3, although admittedly GH was to blame for none of them.

My latest one is an Elite... after two weeks my disc drive stopped closing on its own - love those quality parts!!!

Is so fricken odd - who paid who in that one???

I did! I loved no doubt! I actually prefer Guitar Hero III over rock band just because of the song listing. Not everyone who loves the guitar games like heavy metal and hard rock. I prefer the ska, punk, pop-rock songs like the killers, weezer, no doubt, queens of the stone age. Rock Band however is a far better game with more options and tons more DLC however IMO the DLC are songs I really don't care for. Every DLC for guitar hero 3 so far I have. Thats why Guitar hero has the better edge in my mind, a better playlist for people who have different tastes. However again if rock band 2 comes with the ability to import your own songs I'm sold. I'm really afraid that GH will go down the route of madden and never really updated the extras, characters, or options and all they do is add new songs each year.

I bought the No Doubt pack, not only for the reason I like the band, but also when I have get togethers at my place. The ladies especially love playing this game, so I tend to get the extra DLC for this game.

But I agree Rock band is totally overshadowing guitar hero.

Thanks for saying that: it's a valid point and I hadn't viewed it from that point of view.

I wonder if you are in the minority or not? I guess it is a very mainstream brand.

To be fair, it wasn't JUST Activisions fault, Neversoft helped a lot too.

GH3 = fail in every way

...and don't rip me a new one for saying so, but I believe the tracklist that came w/ GHIII is better than the one that came w/ Rock I don't see how it failed in that vein.

...on the other hand, Create a band and create a player are no-brainers, and I have been waiting for them in GH to no avail. Also, Rock Band crushes GHIII in downloadable content w/ almost 4 times the current amount fo downloadable songs.

But I don't think GHIII COMPLETELY failed, just in a couple of areas.

They need to chill w/ the "Madden"-like releases though, that WILL kill them.
