Rock Band Wii does not support Guitar Hero 3 contollers

rbwiiboo225-copy.jpgNeed another reason to cancel that Rock Band preorder? It has been confirmed by multiple sources, including IGN that this month’s Rock Band Wii will not be compatible with the Guitar Hero 3 guitars. This comes as a definite blow to gamers that were still holding out for Rock Band despite lack of downloadable content, and online play. The controllers are almost identical and both the Xbox 360, and PS2 version allow it…so why not? Wii owners aren’t stupid, Harmonix. We know when we’re getting the short end of the stick.

The facts have been laid out to the Wii consumer. The simple question lies in which music-rhythm game will you be picking up: Rock Band, or Guitar Hero: World Tour?

Don’t think too hard.
