This said, my guess is that EA would work to reengineer the insides of their guitars before selling them individually as accessories. Again, my 2c only, but launching a guitar accessory line that had to be returned regularly makes little sense. Kudos on their return engine - my return took 3 days total!! - but it doesn't help if the guitar becomes unresponsive every week or two.
Awesome game, though. Was playing some folks last night online at my modest medium skill level. Some of them played expert, smoking me in the process. Still, lots of fun to play and watch their rock god status soar! It gives me something to which to aspire.Note to Sony:
Corporate types are always "accidentally" releasing things like personal information. Can't someone at PS3 headquarters "accidentally" release the Activision patch? Puhleese???
That's unfortunate. Which unresponsiveness are you referring to, the overdrive or the downstrum?
I was pleased to have been able to process the Express RMA this morning.
All I want is a guitar that:
a. Doesn't double strum with every downstrum
b. Doesn't need to be held horizontally for premature overdrive activation
c. Doesn't sound broken when you press the buttons
At this point, I'll live with it if conditions a) and b) are met.
It would also be a bonus if it would allow me to beat "Suffragette City" on Expert.
I would have purchased some DLC, in all probability tonight, but now I guess I'll wait. I wonder if GH3 has anything coming out tonight.
The clerks at the UPS store won't be surprised to me back with a returned guitar again.
