Rock Band PS3 patch adds GH3 guitar controller support

rockbandIf waiting for your replacement PS3 Rock Band guitar is a bore but you own the PS3 version of Guitar Hero III, then you might be in luck.

This post on the Rock Band Forums mentions a new routine update to the game, which addresses issues related to the guitar controller.

"Available today is a routine update for the PLAYSTATION 3 version of Rock Band that addresses a number of items related to guitar controller compatibility. Should Rock Band owners choose to obtain the update, they will need broadband internet access connected to their PLAYSTATION 3. The update will be downloaded once the game is started."

But Shacknews confirmed with sources within EA that the patch also allows compatibility with the Gibson Les Paul PS3 wireless controller for Guitar Hero III.

The Xbox 360 Gibson Les Paul controller for Guitar Hero III has worked with the Xbox 360 version of Rock Band since the game’s launch. Even though they had to wait a few more weeks, PS3 owners can breathe a little easier now.
