Yeah, so for those of you who don't already know, Guitar Hero III is out on Wii...and it couldn't have come at a worse time. I have three exams next week and my org is bringing in a speaker Thursday night...and I am addicted to this game.

I think the PS3 controller is laggy. The gameplay feels different from the 1st two games. I even calibrated the lag to no avail. I can beat 1-2 on expert with 5 stars pretty easily. On this one, I can sometimes get 3-5 lol. The song list is nice though.

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.

It's not out until the end of the month here... and I'm off this week! Why can't I have it now?!

Say it with me people: "Simultaneous worldwide release". In a world where I can talk to someone in New York without leaving my chair, and for free, or be there in 7 and a half hours... why do we have to wait a month for a game?!

You know, I never thought I'd like the game as it seemed kinda silly to me. Well, I picked it up for the 360 Friday night and I must say it sure is a fun/entertaining game.

Yea, i calibrated the lag to my TV and my PS3 guitar still seems off. I am no expert (I am decent with hard songs) but I am getting 3 stars on medium songs. I am about half done with medium career mode. It's pretty fun.

WHOA!...this game is out on the Wii?

I've always wanted GH for the Wii since I don't have a PS2 or Xbox 360. Oh man now I really want this and I have no money and lots of school work to do!

I've read up and heard people on PS3 are having the most controller lag issues.

How is the PS2 version compared to the older titles? Are the buttons and timing laggy for you? If not, I might just sell the PS3 version and buy the PS2 one lol.

That song is rough. I can barely beat it on hard. I tried on expert and got to 6% lol.

Is there any other way to play this game, really?

I don't have GH3, but I'm on the 2nd last set on Expert in Guitar Hero 2. It's tough, but I'll pull through.

GH3 has some better songs, but majority of them still suck.

It's harder and faster, but I dont feel it is laggy. The hammer-ons and pull offs are a lot easier. My roommate hates the new guitar where as I like it. I went back and played 1 recently and I like 3 better.

I wish they made the buttons closer together. I have trouble hitting the last note constantly! But, this game is the best ever.
