Isn’t Guitar Hero the only console game where you’d actually want a cabled controller? Busting hot riffs while popping scissor kicks in your spray-on leather kecks ain’t the same if you’re not constantly fighting not to trip over a flailing wire, after all.
But still, it seems that the upcoming Guitar Hero III will come with wireless guitars on all three formats: PS3, Wii and Xbox 360. Apparently they’re heavier than the ones that came with previous Guitar Hero games, and now have customisable faceplates. The game’s due out in November.
“The impression I got was of a very nicely balanced, slick game, which adds a few extras while not straying too far from the core Guitar Hero formula,” reckons Xboxer’s Chris Cornwell. What with that and Rock Band, it looks like being a corking musical Christmas for console gamers.
