Deal: Guitar Hero III for Wii, Xbox, PS3 - $59.99


Probably the closest you will ever come to a rock legend - Amazon's tri-platform deal knocks $30 off the Legends of Rock bundle.

Regardless of platform, Amazon wants you to rock on. Today only they’re offering $30 off the Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock Bundle in all flavors including the Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, and even the PS2 if you roll old school.

As the third installment in the Guitar Hero trilogy, GH3 remains relatively unchanged from the previous versions - hit the notes as they scroll onscreen and bask in the applause. Miss but a few and you’ll quickly remember why you’re an accountant and not touring with Weezer.

This edition adds a story line to your music career, starting you out as local talent and pushing you up the charts until you make it big and face some scary competition. Also new in GH3 is the Battle Mode, pitting two players face to face or via a network.

Of course, any veteran player will tell you Guitar Hero is all about the music. Classics mostly, including tracks by Metallica, G n’R, the Stones, Smashing Pumpkins, Alice Cooper, Foghat, and the ultimate fake guitar player - Tenacious D. If you were born post ‘78, this game should be considered required learning. Seriously.

What makes this deal a bundle? A wireless axe is included - a Gibson no less - so there’s no wires to mess with your killer solo.

Price: $59.99 (free sh/h)
