With my upgrade, I figured I’d give it a whirl and put up a review.
Here’s my review of the wii version. Since it’s the same game, I’ll just go over the differences here.
First off, the guitars. They are the same size and roughly the same weight as the wii guitars, maybe a lillt lighter. They are wireless, with a usb receiver to plug in for each one, sadly, no bluetooth. The only real difference is that the wii has an analog stick where the d pad is, the PS button and the lack of vibration and sound provided by the wii remote.
And the game itself…
The graphics are naturally much better on the ps3, boasting a nice, high resolution, consistently smooth framerate, and, it looks like, better lighting. The sound seems better on the ps3, but that could be the comparison of optical cable to component.
Having storage on the ps3 means downloadable content. New song packs can be found in the add-ons section of the PSN store. I picked up the handful of freebies (Dropkick Murphys for free? woot!). Track packs have 3 songs each and are $6.25. Singles are $2.49 each. After download, it’s just a click to install them.
