GH3 guitars due next year

Many gamers wanting to buy extra controllers for RedOctane's Guitar Hero III will have to wait until next year, the title's publisher has announced. Although the game was released for Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 2/3 not far in advance of the crucial holiday season, Activision says that standalone wireless guitars for the game will not be ready until sometime in the beginning of 2008. This may severely hamper the appeal of the game on the Wii and PS3, as GH3 is the consoles' first Guitar Hero title, and thus they cannot use controllers from earlier games in the series.

Guitar Hero can be played alone, but it revolves primarily around competitive and cooperative multiplayer, typically done offline rather than through a service like Xbox Live. Activision has meanwhile announced that the PS2 will get an exclusive controller, based on Gibson's famous Kramer guitar.
