    Guitar Hero III - Coming to a PS2/PS3 Near You

    Today RedOctane have released some new details about Guitar Hero 3. Perhaps most excitingly, they have revealed that controllers for the next gen consoles will be wireless. Great news for everyone who kept getting tangled up whilst rocking out to the previous two games. The controller itself will be in the shape of a Gibson Les Paul (pictured) for the PlayStation 3. The Playstation 2, however, will have a Gibson Kramer shaped controller instead. Presumably this is due to the PS2's lack of bluetooth, so expect it to be either wired or to include some kind of USB plug-in.

    Other announcements for the game include 'a new multiplayer action-inspired battle mode, grueling boss battles, a bevy of exclusive unlockable content and authentic rock venues', as well as online play. The game will take advantage of RedOctane's partnership with MTV by including a large number of original tracks, rather than covers. Hopefully this will reduce the production time for downloadable songs. Speaking of tracks, below are a few names to get your juices flowing. Let us know what you think of them. Expect the game out before the end of the year.
    • Paint It Black (by The Rolling Stones)
    • Cherub Rock (by Smashing Pumpkins)
    • Sabotage (by Beastie Boys)
    • The Metal (by Tenacious D)
    • My Name is Jonas (by Weezer)
    • Knights of Cydonia (by Muse)
    • Rock And Roll All Nite (as made famous by Kiss)
    • School's Out (as made famous by Alice Cooper)
    • Slow Ride (as made famous by Fog Hat)
    • Cult of Personality (by Living Colour)
    • Barracuda (as made famous by Heart)
    Real music, no more covers. And the Beastie Boys? I cannot wait to get this. I think we will wait until our current wireless controllers wear out before we buy new ones though.

    ETA: Almost forgot to include a link to the article.

    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    OMG! Muse and Living Colour ... can't wait!!! Although I already use a third party wireless controller and haven't had a problem with it ... and I agree ... wireless play is THE BEST!

    Wireless is wonderful! My brother has one wired and one wireless controller. There was this girl playing GH at his house. She kept tugging on the wired controller. She didn't realize that she was pulling on the PS2 console each time she tugged. We kept having to put the PS2 back to being level every minute or so.

    Paint it Black will be awesome. But they NEED to have some David Bowie.

    Yeah... can't expect the ps3 'fanboy' site to get the WHOLE story

    And I hope the comment about 'original tracks' really means original tracks from mainstream artists! I really have no desire to go through all the no-name tracks they have in GH II

    The quality of the tracks really is disappointing in the later stages too for me. Instead of the track lists getting better as you unlocked higher levels, they got more and more disappointing.. with one or two good tracks mixed in.

    The same people who make Guitar Hero are going to be making a game called Rock Band which is what you are talking about, but it will be a separate game from Guitar Hero.
