i think guitar hero is better because the game acualy works! in rock band all you have is a crappy guitar, crappy drums, and crappy microphone and if you sing on easy basicly all you have to do id go ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh throught the whole song and u can get 100% but on guitar hero all u have is the guitar, pretty much what makes up america from the 60's to present day. on guitar hero all u have to do is hit the nots by holding the fret buttons down and hit the strum bar as to where on rock band the strum bar doesnt work half the time and for fock band the hammer ons do not work well so they made lower keys for the solo, but on guitar hero for the solo's you use the same buttons! which is better than swiching back and forth on rock band. also the music on guitar hero is a lot better than rock band, for example. guitar hero has songs like one by matallica, through the fire and flames by dragon force, and rock you like a hurricane by scorpians. as to wher rock band has little gay songs like orange crush by r.e.m., wont get foold again by the who, and blitzkreig bop by the ramones and those are some of they gay little songs in rock band. guitar hero 3 is just better because its lots of fun and has been around more than rock band and people love guitar hero and on every guitar hero there has been greater songs ever since the first guitar hero. rock band has only made 1 of its kind and that is all there gonna make because every tuesday they make new songs for it on xbox live and that is only for the xbox 360, so people with rock band for there playstation 2 or 3 are srewed because you cant download new song for rock band on a plastation 2 or 3. whick makes guitar hero better because it will be around fo a long time. they are relleasing 3 new guitar heros this year guitar hero aerosmith, guitar hero on tour, and guitar hero 4 so no doubt in my mind will this game make people forget about rockband.

Guitar Hero 3 is overall better than Rock Band. Guitar Hero 3 is challenging and enjoyable. It includes songs that are more fun to listen to, and more difficult to play. Although it may be fun to play the drums for a song or two, or do the vocals, it doesnt make for a better game. Guitar Hero is a product that I much more readily support.

holy crap! you can see! no sh*t dumba** i am aware of what the status and abilites of each game ok. and give me proof of these other atachable buttons coming soon because i have played this game many times before and read lots of news about it and i have never heard of it, and the real reason for the detachable neck is to make it easier to carry around not for some future thing for the game.

and i am aware of the lower fret buttons are an option, but all i was trying to say was that the fret board moves to slow. so of coarse the buttons are gonna be close and if it was faster they wouldnt need the lower keys. and i do use my guitar hero controller. oh and no crap are the solos on a real guitar easier higher up the guitar neck i should know i do play the guitar and im pretty good at it and besides (mr. ovious) of course solos are made with the frets higher on a real guitar because thats what gives it is real sound that has been know for guitar solos for over 60 years!

and those bands (r.e.m, the who, and the raomones) doesnt mean that i am uncultured i am with rock history i just got names of bands that suck on the back of the cd case. what would have make rock band better if the songs wrent so retarted like ballroom blitz i mean come on! seriosly i f u put songs like that on a video game where u acualy play the songs u might as well learn how to play the real song because it so easy.

yes! i have relize that gh3 does have downloadable content from xbox live and the only reason they do that is to keep the game fresh and not loose its taste till the next game of the series comes out. also there is only going to be one rock band because the creators of rockband have already promised new songs every tuesday on xbox live, so why make another rock band just for people that dont have that option to get new songs. now they might realese new drums or guitars for the game but not a completely new game.

rockband maybe a better choice for your freinds but, when i play with my freinds i get distacted either because the guy on drums is hitting the pads to hard or the clicking noise from the fret keys from the guy on bass. oh and by the way detriot rock city sucks!

wow! just what i want dude, karioke on steriods!

oh my god! guitars did man! you can have a band without drums or vocals (but still have bass because it does count has a guitar) and still have a band. ever heard of buckethead? yeah yeah i know he does have a drummer in his songs but evan without the drummer his music would sound evan better. and rockband does not represent anything because all it did was make a crappy riped off version of guitar hero but for the whole band. and just in case you havent noticed. what instument is mostly uses in a song? the guitar! so of cousre the guitar is what made up america though the 60's - present. ever heard of jimi hendrix, slash, joe perry. they all have contributed to america in a certain way. so dont go off saying that the guitar isnt important before you acualy do some research. :o :o

wow! a shrug and a smile! holy crap man like that proves anything! like i said they made it that way to make it easier to carry around as labeled on the back of the box.

what the hell does bad grammer have to do with guitar skill! a rather stupid thing to say is it not?


(thats 10 with that extra *push*... lets hope you get that reference) wow! man you know how to do math at a first grade level! your parents must be so proud! sound cranked up to 11! dude thats not gonna be any better because you will still be able to hear the "clicks and clacks" from the intrements for rockband. oh and full experience my a**!

so what you're telling me is:

"Yes the guys successful and has a band but he shouldnt have a band because he'd sound better without a band if it was just him and the bassist."
thats exactly what im saying! ever heard of youtube? here is a video to prove he doesnt need a band. go to youtube and type in buckethead/ holloween and nightmare before christmas and watch it. (you know the little button that says play) and it will prove that he does not need a band.

and when did i say that drums wernt important? you migjht want to acualy read the things i wrote before you put words in my mouth! also its nice to know how to compare things.Drums aren't in bands just for s***s and giggles, they're (dare I say it?) the heartbeat of the music. heart beat of the music wow! i dont even know how you came up with that! oh and nice grammer man!


and the guitar is the most important and has more in a song because most likley they start the song and finish the song off!

rockband was a rip off of guitar hero! due to the fact guitar hero was amde 3 years before rockband was acualy made, and all they acualy made different thing with rockband is the speed is all they same for the difficulties and the notes are rectangular! and yes i have heard of games like (guitar freaks and guitar zero) but there not rip offs. they are just coputer software for people to make there own version of song on there computer. so rockband was a total rip off of guitar hero!
and natural progression of our genre! dude is that the best you came up with? its not a progression ok its simple just a crappy video game.

oh! and im am fimiliar with the bands because i know the lead guitarist of the bands! TRIVIA ROCKS! and thanks for the information that i already know!

when did i say that you said that guitar wasnt important? what now man! i suggest that you read properly berfore you try to put words in my mouth! man an u are just full of crap man serously dude! and by the way i looked up about the attachable keys for guitar hero. nothing dude. nuthing at all.

Guitar Hero 3, hands down. Rock Band has a horrible selection of music, focuses on a group effort, and is much easier to complete. Who wants a completely easy game? Try Guitar Hero 3 on Hard and Expert, and we'll see who's talking then. The only people who can say that Rock Band is any better either have brain hemorrhages, or haven't ever played any Guitar Hero games before.

Rock Band has an added bonus of having a group ability, but Guitar Hero 3 brings further gameplay, difficulty, and a lot more fun and effort to play!

You have a point there my friend, but what I was meaning was one player only. For a solo player, I strongly believe that Guitar Hero 3 is the more fun of the two.

i would've voted rock band but after seeing the article on gamepro about gh4 man its gonna be way better than rock band. they'll have more than what rb has plus the drums is way more sturdier and hasmore symbals. and they are also the original.... well not so anymore after copying those stuff from rb... but competition is good!

In an interview with the creators some of the guys from IGN reviewing the game asked about the attachment and whether or not there would be different necks arriving. They were answered with a coy shrug and a smile.

Good to know you at least know SOMETHING because up until now evidence of that has been rather scarce, to say the least.

"i should know i do play the guitar and im pretty good at it and besides", too bad grammar doesn't come with pretty good guitar skills :

If you're having trouble with clicks and clacks then you're obviously not playing the game loud enough. Volume needs to be cranked up all the way to 11 (thats 10 with that extra *push*... lets hope you get that reference) in order to get the full experience.

Give me the name of a guy who's made it bigtime playing guitar without any accompaniment by a band and I'll toss 10 bands or players who had backing."yeah yeah i know he does have a drummer in his songs but evan without the drummer his music would sound evan better." so what you're telling me is:

Yes the guys successful and has a band but he shouldnt have a band because he'd sound better without a band if it was just him and the bassist.

I'm sorry, but you're just plain wrong. Go to a recording studio and lay down something with a band or go grab a digital master track from a well known band. Now take out the drums and try to tell me it sounds better. Drums aren't in bands just for s***s and giggles, they're (dare I say it?) the heartbeat of the music.

"and just in case you havent noticed. what instument is mostly uses in a song? the guitar!"
REALLY? Good thing I was able to figure out what the sentence actually meant so I could say "You're wrong." Each piece of a band is a necessary part, if you don't understand that then I hope any band you may end up being a part off abandons ship before you start prancing about on stage like Tina Turner or something. The larynx is quite an important to have, as is the bass, and the drums. Its practically never a one man show, and when it is its usually much less entertaining.

Rock band wasn't a rip off. Harmonix wanted to expand to a full band lineup so Neversoft/Activision bought up the GH franchise and continued it on their own. Rock Band isn't a rip off, its the natural progression of the genre. Want to talk about rip offs? Look up Guitar Freaks, a game that predates Guitar Hero with almost the exact same set up.

uh oh.

"ever heard of jimi hendrix, slash, joe perry."
Why yes, if I remember correctly they were part of The Jimi Hendrix Experience (as well as Gypsy, Sun, and Rainbows and Band of Gypsys), Guns N' Roses (and Velvet Revolver), and Aerosmith... just a quick bit of trivia for you.

P.S. Where did I say guitar wasn't important? I suggest you read properly before you try putting words in my mouth.

Rock Band is obviously the the clear choice:
Not only do you play guitar, but you play drums, bass, and vocals too. It also has a larger soundtrack.
It has a much stronger online community.

"on guitar hero all u have to do is hit the nots by holding the fret buttons down and hit the strum bar"

holy crap, you do the exact same thing on guitar for rock band! try using the GH3 controller before you start b****ing. GH3's detachable neck is detachable because they're coming out with the solo fret button attachments in the future. I'll wait for you to praise the notes on the higher frets since you're such a fervent little fan boy, aren't you? You don't even NEED to switch up to the solo frets to play it, its simply an OPTION to make solos easier since the notes are closer together (if you ever played a real guitar you would notice that solo's are easier from higher up the neck)

Calling songs by bands like R.E.M., The Who, and The Ramones just proves how uncultured you are in Rock n Roll.

I hope you realize that GH3 has downloadable content as well... and you already seem to know that GH4 is coming out. So why would you automatically assume that only one iteration of Rock Band would come out? Kind of stupid, no?

I'm a fan of both games, but when you have a group of friends Rock Band simply allows for more fun... you get to listen to your friend's crappy singing and rock out to great classics (Detroit Rock City, anyone?).

You complain about the vocal option for Rock Band, at least RB is offering the option.

OH and in case you failed to realize, the guitar alone didn't make up america from the 60's to present day. Entire BANDS made up american rock culture from the 60's to present day, and OH MY GOSH Rock Band has all the parts of a band represented :O

"what the hell does bad grammer have to do with guitar skill! a rather stupid thing to say is it not? "
hey you took the hint and started writing properly! my work is almost done!

"(thats 10 with that extra *push*... lets hope you get that reference) wow! man you know how to do math at a first grade level! your parents must be so proud! sound cranked up to 11!"
oh shucks I'm sorry but thats the incorrect answer. the correct answer is "This is Spinal Tap", you may recognize the band name from Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight, a song that appears in GH2. Good luck next time around.

"Drums aren't in bands just for s***s and giggles, they're (dare I say it?) the heartbeat of the music. heart beat of the music wow! i dont even know how you came up with that! oh and nice grammer man! "

mmmm grammer.

"and yes i have heard of games like (guitar freaks and guitar zero) but there not rip offs. they are just coputer software for people to make there own version of song on there computer."

Hey that controller looks familiar, doesn't it? I could've SWORN I'd seen almost the exact same peripheral on Guitar Hero, even though Guitar Freak predates GH by even more than 3 years. SCANDAL! :O A rip off is a rip off is a rip off. Hell, Led Zep are ripoffs that doesn't mean they're inferior in any way.

"and natural progression of our genre! dude is that the best you came up with?"
It doesn't seem like that poor of an answer. Think about it, you have a game that lets you 'play' guitar, after you've mastered that why keep giving people vanilla when you can toss in some chocolate and strawberry? I remember the GameFAQs forums were buzzing with people wondering when they could have a full band setup or at least drums.

"when did i say that you said that guitar wasnt important? what now man! "
Where? "so dont go off saying that the guitar isnt important before you actually do some research"
Thas what we in the biz call an accusation, and accusations aren't nice. My point about drums were in response to you claiming that Buckethead would sound better without drums.

You realize that game companies don't release vital bits of info before they need to, right? Just like we don't know what they're going to do with the phone jack thats started coming out on the guitars.

Anyway, its been real big tuna but I'm tired of replying to the crap you've chosen to pedal and pedal 'rebuttal' after 'rebuttal'. You're obviously young so you'll eventually learn how at least spell consistently "nothing dude. nuthing at all." and maybe even learn to make more effectively structured arguments. Only time will tell, young Padawan.

P.S.:

"Activision and RedOctane have also trademarked the titles "Guitar Villain", "Drum Villain", "Keyboard Hero", "Drum Hero" and "Band Hero".[12] Analysts expect that future Guitar Hero games in 2008 will include additional instrument peripherals to compete against Rock Band;[13] Activision's CEO Bobby Kotick announced on April 21, 2008 that Guitar Hero IV will branch out into other instruments including vocals.[14]"

Why would i pay some $80 for a plastic guitar when i can pay $200 for a plastic guitar, a plastic bass, a mini-drumset, and a mic/tamborine? Rock Band has so much more diversity than GH, i honestly dont know how GH is still making money.

This is the next great idea..someone is going to make a game that isnt Rock Band or Guitar Hero but..wait for it..wait for it...I WANNA BE AN MC! It will let you make all the beats to all the hip hop songs you can dream of! An early "your welcome" to whoever invents this first, as im too lazy and not smart enough to do so.
