You've also got to remember that often the people that own the rights to these big names want way more many than would be allowed for one or two songs in a video game budget.

Ken: I'm dying to know: Do the Guitar Hero controllers work with the USB adapters on the PS3?
IGN: When you pop in a PS2 or PSone game, you're prompted to tap the PlayStation button on the controller. For what reason, we're not sure, but as Guitar Hero's SG controller doesn't have this button, you can't actually activate it. You also can't quick-swap from one controller to another as the second part of the problem lies in that you need to turn on analog control, but again, the SG guitar doesn't have an on/off button for analog play. This SUCKS.

Wow....that's got to be the worst VG news I think I've ever heard Well, I guess that means I'm getting a 360 when I decide to go next-gen. Man, and I was hoping I could keep MS out of my living room....
This is a sad day.

This thread caught my eye and I've never heard of this game before. I've been playing guitar for about thirty years, the last fifteen as a pro... and I have to say I feel that this is a pretty crappy idea. While I encourage enthusiasm for the instrument, I think that this game just caters to the "instant gratification" aspects of our culture, and that if kids really want to play guitar, they should practise the damn thing, not get their egos stroked without having to do any of the heavy lifting that getting serious about an instrument requires.
Get a real guitar, go to any of the thousands of websites and magazines that now cater for people who actually want to learn, and make the sounds yourself. It's far more satisfying, and you actually change your brain connectivity in interesting and useful ways.
However, the main reason I personally like this game is because of the other hard work it eliminates: trying to find the right group of people to play with (or who will let you play with them, as has always been my case), trying to get that 1st couple of gigs set up, trying to get people to come out and listen to you.
I know damn well I'm never going to play in a band--guitar, piano, whatever. Regardless of any musical abilities I may have, I don't have the right personality--too controlling and ego-centric to play anything but lead, but nowhere near good enough to play anything but the radio. Even if I could get something going, I'm pretty sure I'd never play in front of a crowd the size of what the game simulates.
I know I'm never going to play the Warped Tour in real life; this is my way of getting a piece of that, even if it is completely fake.
Besides, with GH1 I got just as big a rush getting through Bark At The Moon on expert as I did with any piano piece I spent days working on. Sad, I know....
