Wait is over for Guitar Hero III

After months of waiting gamers finally got their hands on Guitar Hero III on Sunday. The third installment of the cultural phenomenon that is the Guitar Hero series is poised to be the hardest rocker yet as it is the first one to be available on all major consoles (Xbox360, Playstation 2 & 3, and Wii). Opening up the game to these other consoles will hopefully allow the game to penetrate an entirely new market of gamers.

The original Guitar Hero started a craze that has now almost turned into a lifestyle. Gone are the days of going to bars for karaoke, many bars now have Guitar Hero nights. In an even more bizarre story Detroit Tigers pitch Joel Zumaya missed numerous games in last years American League Championship Series because of a fingure injury on his pitching hand that he sustained by playing too much of the the game.

Guitar Hero III will get some competition when the highly touted game, Rockband, releases closer to Christmas, but for now it remains the undisputed king of the music video game market.
