the guitar hero guitar controllers work with rock band, a lot of people say there better but I like the RB guitars, I like the feel or the buttons over the lumpy guitar hero ones

I add rented this awhile ago.

I had to rent the Ps2 version because my GH Metallica wireless guitar didnt work with the Rb 2 PS3 version but my Original PS2 GH 2 guitar worked with the PS2 RB. Go figure....oh well I prefer the wired controller anyway.

But - simply said I'm pretty unimpressed with the track list. Seriously. almost 40% if not more were rip offs already done by the Guitar Hero franchise. And, those songs by bands that were well known weren't the best song choices. Example - their AC/DC song - they chose "Let There Be Rock". Decent song on its own. But seriously, for a marquee band why didnt they choose highway to hell, Thunderstruck or Shoot To Kill? Well known awesome songs! And they did this for a few of the well known bands. Then, as I went on in the career I was expecting more big name bands with their great songs. What did I get? Stuff I've never even heard of. Oh sure Judas Priest is great but Painkiller? I got more and more bored as I went through the game.

Also, having to do setlists at the end of each venue is a fine idea but I swear I played Let There Be Rock and Carry on Wayward son (rip off from GH 2) at least 5 times in one day. Allowing you to play future songs before they're unlocked just adds to the repetitive feeling. ie: at the end of a setlist you don't get to choose the song. Its already there. Yet after you beat that setlist and unlock more countries, there the song is waiting to get played again. And if you ignore it, it stays "unplayed".

GH World Tour impressed me more because at least the songs I hadn't heard of before I ended up liking some of them. The songs that were well known weren't used previously either. And World Tour had songs that weren't even in english! (not a good thing) Sorry RB - this installment further proved to me that you're still a runner up to GH. Gotta do better than that with your song list. Only good thing going was the number of songs. Too bad most of them weren't fun/good or had already been done before.

Sorry but Guitar Hero to me was much better with picks of songs and just everything really and mainly because the original guitar hero was first so i went with that series.

Harmonix made GH1 and 2 idunno about GH 80s hits
a different company makes the GHs now and they release like 5 GHs a year now. they're gonna kill it soon.




also anyone hear about this Rock Band network? any band can submit there songs to HMX to use in RB. and there are some pretty decent bands already looking forward to using this and record labels want to use it as a way to release entire catalogs of music from bands.

Hey if any one plays this I have an important question.

I have a newer ps3 slim, and I was gonna get this for my kids for Christmas. How do all the instruments hook up? Cause now I'm only down to 2 usb slots on the slim. Does each instrument hook up separate?
How do I get mic, drums, guitar..etc all hooked up on only 2 slots?

ok so its all wireless (im assuming you already know)
but the guitar/bass USB adapters come with 2 other usb slots built it. so if you have both guitar usb's in, you have 4 other usb slots to use Smile

ill find a pic cause my post is a bit confusing

So it should be all good then.

The wireless thing sadly doesnt matter.

Even now all I can connect is 2 controllers wirelessly.

Its just how the slim is. It will only connect 2 things, just like it only has 2 usb slots
But it sounds like if I have those adapter doo hickies I can at least connect them...(I hope)
The kit comes with everything as far as I know (drums/guitar/bass/mic etc)

the gray thing in the pic comes with the game instruments. they are the wireless adapters.
basically you can plug in your guitar adapter, then plug the bass and drum adapters into your guitar adapter and you can plug your mic into the bass adapter. that way you leave the other usb free on your slim

whats that about only being able to hook up 2 controllers? does that mean you cant play with 3 other people on a sports game or something?

if thats true, sony should pull their heads out of their asses

Yes that is correct.
I first discovered it when the 2 little kids and I went to play that TMNT game after the last PS3 died.
We was sad faise

Thanks for the help though.

Its already been purchased (the game) and I hadnt even thought about the hook up thing until this morning
