Guitar Hero III gets offline mode with patch on 360

Those who fired up their new copies of Guitar Hero III yesterday might have been disheartened to find that the game lacked the offline co-op quickplay mode. Luckily (for a portion of you, at least) that's going to be addressed with a quickness, thanks to a patch that 1UP says is coming this Tuesday to Xbox Live.

The bad news is that there's no word of similar treatment on the Wii or PS3 versions so far, but hopefully it's not too far off. We're not sure what's so difficult about offline co-op quickplay that it had to be addressed with a patch, but we're happy that Activision seems concerned enough about it to act on it so quickly. Of course, that's not much comfort to those without internet or (we're looking at you new Arcade owners) a hard drive to save the patch on.

The story is too old to be commented.

Ouch -- that's far from ideal, especially for those new Arcade 360 owners!

Still, I'm kinda keen to pick the game up, but I think I may wait a little while first.

I thought off-line co-op play was already available in GH2...why would they have trouble w/ GH3?!

The GH-2 controllers for the PS-2 with a "PS-2 to USB adaptor" does not work with GH-3 on the PS-3 :(((

probably no space on DVD for include offline co-op quickplay mode. ;)
PS3 Blu-Ray have no space problem.
Wii graphics takes less space.

probably not but i post for fun. (and desagree from 360 owner loll)

reading comprehension wasn't your strongest subject in school.

Yeah, please read before you post. The same problem plagues all platforms.

lol, is that Mark Dacascos in your avatar?

mithril4877d ago (Edited 4877d ago )

yes it's Mark Dacascos on Crying Freeman, this film is Banned in canada. I do Kung-Fu with Al Dacascos (father's Mark) many years ago.

And yes i know all platform have the same game and mode, I think it's a time release problem, Red Octane want the game for christmas and probably this part not finished yet.

and my post is sarcasm, but i explain my post, if you doing game and game not fit on DVD you can remove a part of game on ALL platform for not Frustrate owner. And after that offer update on all platform. it's a Politically correct solution for that kind of problem.

but i know it's not the probleme here, it's a sarcasm.

excuse me for my unclear post :)
