Guitar Hero III for the PS3 - Not completely wireless

The launch of Guitar Hero III is less than three weeks away. If you're hoping to get a new wireless controller for your PS3, you may be a bit disappointed when you open the box.

Yes, I'm sure that the controller is great, though I haven't gotten the opportunity to test one out yet. The disappointment will come with the giant dongle that you must plug in. It's big, ugly and shaped like a guitar pick.

There are plenty of rumors floating around as to why Red Octane decided to take this route. Some say it's because the Bluetooth technology wasn't reliable enough, others say that Sony wouldn't open up their wireless standard to Red Octane. I'm inclined to believe the latter. Either way, it's just plain ugly.
