Publisher Activision has announced the official title for the next volume in the Guitar Hero franchise, confirming that Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock will debut this fall for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii. Activision has also confirmed that its previously announced support for Gibson branded wireless guitar controllers for each platform (Wii version pictured) is part of an exclusive partnership with the guitar manufacturer for the upcoming title. As a result, the rhythm action game, which is being handled by the Tony Hawk franchise developers Neversoft, will feature several in-game representations of 20 classic and modern Gibson guitars, and more than 80 finishes from which players can select and use. Some of the brands confirmed to be included in the game include Gibson, Epiphone and Kramer. As mentioned, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock will also include support for wireless guitar controllers, with each platform getting its own Gibson branded peripheral. Each guitar will include removable faceplates, as well as as a new button color design. A controller based on Gibson Guitar's Les Paul model will be released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii versions, while the PlayStation 2 version's controller will take the shape of Gibson's classic Kramer guitar. "Our relationship with Activision began with the launch of Guitar Hero over two years ago. Since then the game has had phenomenal success and many other makers have tried to compete with its popularity," said Henry Juszkiewicz, Chairman and CEO of Gibson Guitar. "We have combined the power of Gibson with the power of Activision to produce one of the greatest games ever for consumers. We are sure game enthusiasts around the world will quickly make Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock a huge success."
