Wireless Axes Confirmed for Guitar Hero III
First Guitar Hero III info: new tracks, guitars, online mulitplayer and more.
by Rob Burman, IGN UK

UK, May 23, 2007 - Activision has rocked our world by officially announcing that Guitar Hero III will feature wireless guitars, an online multiplayer mode and original artists recordings when the game is released this Autumn.

Guitar Hero III will be available on PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii and will feature an abundance of new modes, including a multiplayer action-inspired battle mode, boss battles, unlockable content and authentic rock venues.

More importantly, wannabe rock gods can get their fingers in a twist with the all-new wireless guitar controllers, with the Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3 getting the Gibson Les Paul and PS2 the proud recipient of a Gibson Kramer. What's more, the guitars will have removable faceplates that allow fans to personalise their guitars, plus they'll include a new button colour design for "an even greater authentic feel and rock experience".

In addition Guitar Hero III will include an expanded online multiplayer in which axe-shredders worldwide can compete in head-to-head battles to prove they're the ultimate rock legend. As for the tracks you'll be rocking along to, Activision has revealed that GHIII features more master recordings than ever before, with the first tracks announced as follows:

Paint It Black - The Rolling Stones

Cherub Rock - Smashing Pumpkins

Sabotage - Beastie Boys

The Metal - Tenacious D

My Name is Jonas - Weezer

Knights of Cydonia - Muse

Rock And Roll All Nite - Kiss

School's Out - Alice Cooper

Slow Ride - Fog Hat

Cult of Personality - Living Colour

Barracuda - Heart

Dusty Welch, head of publishing at RedOctane, said: "The development team at Neversoft has been exceptional and we've been able to incorporate a host of fresh new online and multiplayer game play modes, along with exciting content into this version of Guitar Hero that our fans have been asking for. Also, many of the top bands and songs we've tried to get in the past are now on board."
Nice! And the 80's disc is coming too. Lots of GH goodness on the way

"Master recordings"? As in the original artists? Cherub Rock would be great, but only if it's actually SP.

I've never once listened to any of these songs. Congrats Red Octane, another product that I won't buy.

:o Not a single one? Is that even possible?

At any rate, I'm sure with the Activision backing on top of how huge the GH franchise has grown, we will see a huge transition to licensed songs as opposed to remakes like the previous games.

The 80s edition I'd totally buy, but since it's a PS2 title and not 360 I won't be.

I would buy the 80s edition if it's less focused on hair metal and more focused on synth/new wave artists. I have the feeling it will be more focused on the former though.

You've never even heard Paint It Black by the Rolling Stones? #1 in both UK and US, used in several movies including Full Metal Jacket, and covered about a million times by everyone from Led Zep to U2 to Metallica to Utada Hikaru?

You can't reallly blame Red Octane for your limited grasp of pop culture. :P

Thats a pretty amazing list so far, lets hope the rest is as good. The only song I haven't heard is the Muse one, though I've heard other songs of theirs and they usually have some crazy guitars so it should be good. APE is just a hater. Not only would you have to stay away from radios your whole life, but television and movies too if you have never heard Paint it Black or Barracuda. And videogames too! Twisted Metal Black used Paint It Black for its theme, and Barracuda was in one of the Grand Theft Autos. School's Out from Alice Cooper is used in like...countless highschool movies and stuff...there's just no way you haven't heard these. Besides, Red Octane wouldn't sell a single copy if they catered to whatever weird-ass music you must listen to while you block out the rest of the world.

Sweet! I'm just happy they're puttin' a Pumpkins song in the mix :D . I would have prefered "Geek U.S.A.", but "Cherub Rock" is an awesome song too. And Muse...pretty excited about that. "Knights of Cydonia" isn't one of my favorite Muse songs, but it seems like it'll work well with GH.
