Guitar Hero III PC and Mac

Aspyr announces they will be bringing Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock to PC and Mac this fall:
ASPYR MEDIA ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH ACTIVISION TO BRING GUITAR HERO III: LEGENDS OF ROCK TO PC AND MAC

AUSTIN, TX ­ Sept. 11, 2007 ­ The rock gods have spoken, and gamers around the world will now be able to unleash their inner-rock star on two brand new platforms. Aspyr Media, in partnership with Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), today announced that the third iteration of the wildly popular Guitar Hero franchise, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, will be available to PC and Mac gamers for the first time ever this fall.

Being developed and published exclusively by Aspyr, the PC and Mac versions will match their console counterparts with explosive new content and features including a multiplayer action-inspired battle mode, grueling boss battles, a host of exclusive unlockable content and visually stunning rock venues. With more than 70 songs in the set list, and more original master tracks than ever before, players will be able to shred from many of the freshest and hottest artists today, along with many of the most popular rock songs ever recorded. Expanded online multiplayer game modes will also allow PC and Mac enthusiasts to rip head-to-head against players around the world and across either platform, raising the level of competition for true legendary rock status.

"Working with such a wildly successful franchise and helping to strengthen an already powerful brand has us feeling like rock stars ourselves, only without the fame, money or musical talent," said Ted Staloch, Executive Vice President, Publishing for Aspyr. "But even without Slashšs chops, we still have what it takes to bring the best music game on the planet to PC and Mac gamers. Aspyršs expertise in developing and publishing for these platforms means that we will deliver a game that wails just as hard as it does on consoles but feels natural on this audiencešs chosen platform."

"Providing the option for our fans to play Guitar Hero at their desk or on a laptop on the go is incredibly exciting, and wešre thrilled to now offer the ability to rock out literally anywhere and everywhere," said Dusty Welch, head of publishing at RedOctane. "PC and Mac gamers can now shred as hard as their console counterparts do, and itšs a great opportunity to help promote musicianship and expand the growing number of Guitar Hero fans worldwide."

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock on PC and Mac is rated T for Teen by the ESRB, and will be available this fall. For more information, please visit www.aspyr.com.

i always thought one of best part of PC gaming was that we didn't have stupid sh%t like this.
Looks like they're trying to take that away from us too...

Keep silly "party" games where they belong - on the consoles. We PC gamers prefer to sit in our chairs and get fatter.

Eh...as much as I love PC, this game is definately a party game, and best suited on a big screen with a home stereo and all your friends gathered around.

Well with this coming out I'm sure FoF will be able to finally figure out how to get the whammy bar working.

It always worked for me...

Nice! Thanks for the link, TangoBaker. A few months ago I stumbled by accident into the DDR world (Stepmania) and have been badly, oh so badly, addicted since.

I don't know why they'd have to wait for the GH3 to come out since its just another Axis of control. But, I'm not a coder and who knows, maybe the latest version of FoF does have whammy support. I haven't tried the latest but will soon.

The Xbox360 guitar DOES work flawlessly with the PC and also with FretsonFire (FoF). Only thing is, I don't believe it supports the whammy bar and definetly doesn't support the tilt detection of the guitar.

One cool feature of FoF though is that you can put in the GH2 DVD into you drive and the game will rip all the songs and their timings so you can play them on the PC.
If you kill them, they will die!

I amazed no one has mentioned "Frets on Fire" yet. http://fretsonfire.sourceforge.net/

Runs on Windows, Linux or Mac, works great the the GHII guitar and you're not locked into some list of licensed songs.

It'd be the coolest if the Rock band Guitar was USB and worked with the PC.

I've heard the one that ships w/ GH2 right now works w/ Windows, and it is USB...
