I’ve questioned the logic behind Activision’s choice to call Guitar Hero III “Legends of Rock” due to the lack of actual legends.

I have to admit that I’ve been pretty unhappy with Activision over the whole guitar incompatibility issue. Sure, I rock out on my 360 so I haven’t had any issues, however, one of my best friends is more of a PS3 guy.
