This costs as much as a new game.

I never played Guitar Hero 3.

I would love to play it but it costs as much as a brand new game(Guitar and disc); It's been almost 5 years and the price has not gone down a whole lot. I buy 1 or 2 games every 6 months to a year and I was wondering if any of you had cheaper solutions for me? Also should I get a MadCatz guitar?

But seriously though,why does it cost so much? The game itself is about 7 dollars or so on amazon, but then the guitar itself is 50 bucks. I would imagine this game doesn't exactly sell very well especially after almost 5 years. I feel like I'm in a weird spot where the price for the guitars has gone up because of manufacturing.

That sounds abnormal, I've seen the guitar and game together for as low as $10 years ago (used)...

Strange though out of all the GH games I've played, my favorite is still GH Metallica. Maybe look at the other GH games after 3 for the guitar controller cheaper then go after GH3 game disc without the controller.

I got that game, and a guitar for like $20 (new) a couple years ago. It was the PS3 version, so maybe that's why.

Do yourself a favor and play Rock Band instead.

And guitars for both games can be found aplenty for next to nothing on Craigslist.

Why GH3? I can't say it's a very good entry in the series. I guess the incredibly loose HOPOs make it a good starting point though?

Soundtrack, probably.

Go for Rock Band 3 than. All the soundtrack you could possibly want and cheap.

Ok cool thanks everyone. Currently scouring the internet looking for hot dealz and what not.

thinking of taking mine to goodwill, there will soon be a good deal on at least one copy of the game.

People prefer the GH3 guitar to most others and they are hard to find. I have like 3 GH3 guitars in my closet haha

It's crazy how the aftermath of this plastic guitar craze is closets everywhere with a few plastic guitars stuck up in the corner. I'm glad I didn't get the drums.

As for as Guitar Hero games go Guitar Hero 2 is superior to Guitar Hero 3 (I partly say that as a Harmonix fanboy).

As for the hardware, I've tried out every guitar that they've released for these kinds of games and the Guitar Hero 3 controller is definitely the best wireless choice (although they don't last forever, everyone I know that had a guitar hero 3 controller had it break on them).
