Guitar Hero III news from E3...

Interesting stuff coming out of E3 this week about Guitar Hero III. E3 is the big electronics and gaming convention for venders and companies in this business.

Anyway, this story is about the new battle mode in GH3. They also touch on how the co-op mode from GH2 will be extended so two players can go through career mode instead of just quick play the songs.

I also saw a little nugget about the controllers. More specifically the Wii controller which I don't really care about. But they talk about all the guitars that will be available for GH3 as well right here. Judging from the fact that the Wii-specifica guitar has a Wii-mote in it, it appears that they are making a Les Paul guitar controller and a controller modeled after a famous Kramer guitar. I don't know what the original model was called, but Kramer is making a new version of this guitar called the 1984 after Eddie Van Halen's famous red and white striped Kramer. But this one is black.

Most people will call it a Fender Stratocaster because of the body style, but the headstock is all Kramer and that is the difference.
