Though the PS3 and Wii versions were long ago confirmed to use wireless guitar controllers, RedOctane has announced that the PS2 Kramer controller and the 360 Les Paul will both be wireless as well, despite the PS2 not having a built-in wireless system and the 360's wireless being proprietary technology.

Wal-Mart Version of GH III Comes With Old Guitars

Kotaku - October 28, 2007

Submitted by Kemkle33 (226) at 11:50AM PST on October 28, 2007

Apparently, folks who have purchased Guitar Hero III from Wal-Mart are reporting that the game comes with the old guitars rather than the new ones. This problem seems to extend to both the PS and Xbox 360 versions of the game. So, if you were planning on picking up the game from Wal-Mart and you really want that wireless Les Paul, you may want to consider going to another retailer or at the very least, be sure to check the front of the box before you purchase.

Guitar Hero III Sales Break $100 Mil In Seven Days

Kotaku - November 2, 2007

Submitted by Kemkle33 (226) at 6:20PM PST on November 5, 2007

It may not have been the biggest entertainment launch event of the year, or however Halo 3's launch was marketed by the team at Microsoft, but Activision's haul for the launch week of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock was more than respectable.
