Guess I'm the only person that is interested in this since I don't have a console to play this on. :P

It's too bad it's only being sold in a bundle, I would really like to have one of the new GH3 controllers.

LOC said,
Nah, I'm interested also, but I can't see me spending the money on it just like with the 360 version.
Any reason for that? Is it just the larger price tag compared to other games because of the controller, or you just think you won't get that much play time out of it?

I've played all the Guitar Heroes at a friend's house since I don't have any console, which is the main reason why I want to buy it for myself. I think I would get a decent amount of play time on it. That's also the main reason why I want the new GH3 guitars, the old one seems flimsy and the new one is just more comfortable in general.

Both the price, and I doubt I'll play it much to be worth the price tag. Not to mention, I'm not very good at those "click press here" style games, especially music rythm type games. So, it probably wouldn't be worth it to me.

That's not to say I'd never buy it. If I try out the game and I have fun/enjoy it enough, I might plunk down the dough for it on the PC for sure.

Surely not Rock Band though, wow, way to overpriced for me

Notice: This game contains technology intended to prevent copying that may conflict with some disk and virtual disk drives.

Probably not going to buy it just because of that....Haven't they learned it's useless?
