Walmart screws Guitar Hero III buyers out of a new controller

Walmart screws Guitar Hero III buyers out of a new controller

I'm sure that by now you're shocked that I haven't posted my in-depth review of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. Unfortunately due to some shipping issues I have not yet received my copy, but you can rest assured that I'll give you my full report once it makes its way here. Until then, here's a little nugget of joy.

By joy I of course mean pain. If you went to your local Walmart to pick up your copy of the game, you already know what I'm talking about. Until now we've been informed that the Xbox 360 bundle will feature a Les Paul, and the PS2 will have a Kramer controller.

Target gets a special Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock bundle

Target gets a special Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock bundle

It has the game, and two controllers. Not one, but two, that means if you keep bumming one off your friend because you are too cheap to buy the game and your own controller, you can get this bundle at a savings of about $20 and have two.

That $20 savings isn’t off of the regular package price, as this package will cost you $109.99, but that’s about $20 less than the normal one guitar/game package and a second separate guitar. Me myself and I, I bought GH2 for my 360 before I went and bought a used PS2, so I think if I buy anything GH or RB related it will have to be for that system.

The launch of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock is coming up quick. You can bet that we'll be bringing you all of the juicy details just as soon as I get my hands on it. I do have a tidbit of information regarding compatibility issues with the new Les Paul.

There have been rumors around that the X-Plorer will/won't work with Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. I decided to go straight to the source and find out what Red Octane had to say about compatibility of the old and new controllers. Mind you, I only talked about the 360 controllers, as they have really been the only ones in question. Hit the jump for the full transcript of my Q&A with Bryan Lam of Red Octane.
