I was having some issues with my Rock Band guitar. Some random strums were being dropped and the fret buttons weren’t always accurate. I say that it was the guitar because I was having trouble five star’ing the first few songs in the Solo Tour on Medium; when I switched to the wireless GH3 guitar, I nailed these songs with no trouble. Must be a faulty guitar controller.
I loved the fact that EA is willing to cross-ship a new guitar to you, if you give them a credit card, so I did that. Got the new guitar this weekend, plugged it in, and was astonished to find that the new guitar was just plain broken. Up strumming only worked two out of every five strums; down strumming either didn’t work at all or got stuck and sent multiple strums to the console. How bad was my playing with this guitar? I couldn’t tell you that; I wasn’t even able to navigate the menus with the controller.
Looks like we’ll be cross-shipping another one – I like the style of the RB guitar more than the GH3 one, even if the GH3 is wireless… never mind the fact that it should work.
Sorta getting sick of buying stuff and having to “settle” or “accept” defective parts and lower quality.
