Red Octane confirms GH III Xbox wireless guitar same price as PS3 version

Filed under: ,

Red Octane has confirmed to us that the Xbox 360 version of Guitar Hero III will be $99 and include a wireless guitar. The question was up in the air of whether they would bundle a wired guitar like Rock Band, or pass along the extra cost of Microsoft's proprietary wireless license to consumers -- it looks like Xbox 360 owners preparing to rock will win on both fronts. Furthermore, Red Octane went on to say, "All platforms will be bundling wireless guitars and the prices for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions are set at $99.99 while the Wii and PS2 versions are $89.99."

So far we've been very happy with what we've seen from Red Octane's new guitars. It's also nice to note that the wired Xbox 360 controller retails for about $60, so getting a wireless guitar plus the new game at $99 actually ends up sounding like a really good deal. We're happy to know that Red Octane and Activision took the route of consumer friendliness on this wireless guitar deal.
