    I've been looking around online and trying to figure out which system I should get guitar hero III for. I've found for the most part that there is a $10 difference between the two systems. But besides the price what are the major differences between the two games?

    they SHOULD be pretty similar... maybe you should wait for all the details to come out and decide from that

    Just based on what was posted here I would say the wii one. I too remember reading about a downloadable song system being implemented. And if there truly is a better Guitar, then that's all you need. As far as gfx, does it really matter, I mean in general I don't really care about gfx, but ESPECIALLY when the whole game is about the music. As long as you can tell apart the colors the only thing to see is the fireworks and flashing lights when you tilt.

    why in God's name would you need HD on a game like guitar hero? its a bunch of circles coming at you really fast. you dont have time to look at your guy, who's only purpose is for other people to look at.

    You don't need HD. When do you ever need the Wii controlls?
    It's just an enhancement.

    And heh for someone like me with a large hdtv and the Wii... I wouldn't be surprised if the circles are so blurry that it really does hurt the game.



    Sense the Wii is supposed to have downloadables and a guitar is a guitar then other than a few small things it's basically a $10 difference for HD (and graphics way better in every aspect) or no HD?
    If I had a 360 I'd get that version but sense I don't I plan on getting the Wii. Unless of course the Wii version is a major flop for whatever reasons which could easily happen.

    try making warioware without wii controls (at least, make a fun one without them.

    i think wii controls are necessary for certain games (not many, but a couple), but i also think HD is necessary for certain games (but guitar hero isn't one of them)

    Haha

    HD in guitar hero, yeah that's necessary...

    If I had a wii and a 360 I'd definitely get it for wii. It'll be cheaper apparently and if the guitar is better, so much the better.

    Honestly, all you do is stare at the stupid guitar with the approaching circles anyways.

    yeah that's what I was thinking. save 10 for HD seeing how im still on SDTV I think i might go with wii.

    Except for the downloaded songs. the 360 marketplace is already set and running where as wii shop(although getting better) is still getting a makeover every three weeks.

    wii has the better guitar? they are all the same.
    load times...wow..wheres your proof? 360 has such a better processor than the wii, without any back up the logical choice would be 360 for load times.
    you heard somewhere, rofl... did you also hear somewhere that wii has the better guitar too?

    @hd, its HD, people who have HDTVs want a game fitted for their TV, its not just about cleaner images

    @the kid above me, you agree?! YOU AGREE?! on some bias hopes, rofl.

    Read that......the Wii guitar will have a rumble feature the other versions wont have, and also sound from the Wiimote the other versions wont have

    And it mentions loading times in there too

    I think thats the proof

    HD isn't a priority but I see what that dude Steven is saying since there's no Wii specific controls as far as I know.

    true that [i didnt see the loading part] you have to stuff the wiimote in there, weird.

    i dont get how you could feel the rumble, when i use a wiimote i hear the rumble more than i feel it..sound quality on it is also terrible. little perks but on the 360 version there is still xbox live backing it up

    My mind will never change on this.

    Yes it's sound, but it's horrible. And I don't want anyone quoting me and giving a lame exuse like oh but it's because it's small. Yes it's small but still, they completely crapped out on it.
    And the rumble... You feel it through the guitar? Maybe put it all the way up and it'll shake it a little I guess.

    Well it says

    "...the only Guitar Hero game that will feature force-feedback thanks to the rumble in the controller, and believe it or not, in our hands-on, you really could feel the guitar shake..."

    and

    "...One noticeable benefit: loadtimes are damn quick between menus and in-game challenges... you might not have much time to rest those fingers."

    yah i read the first one, what i said was just a disbelief because the rumble in the wiimote is so meh.
    i see, thats always good, perhaps load times are reduced for all versions o_O

    and i apologize for my assholeness towards you (it was you right..? myes..) that was new news and i forget to check the wii section every so often./
