Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

Guitar hero3 on PS2 (original)

We got guitar hero III for PS2 bundle with 1 controller. All works fine. Then we went out and bought psyclone brand second guitar for 2 player mode. Will not work, we have exchanged once same problem, Then went and bought React brand guitar same problem. When you push blue game reads it as green being pushed, when you push orange game thinks its red, other buttons don't work at all. Same problem with all guitars. We have tried guitar on the newer slim version and in the player 1 port. No luck.
Please help! I have found no info on this same problem and I find that hard to believe.

Re: Guitar hero3 on PS2 (original)

Haha you know i had the exact same problem with my PS3 version of the game i tried to trick the game by getting an adapter so i could plug my old PS2 guitar hero controller into it and just play 2 player that way and the exact same thing happend. Luckly i have a bud who works at game stop and he told me that second guitars for the game have been put up on sale yet so you have to buy the pack again for another guitar. How stupid is that, but yeah bud you me and everyone else is out of luck for now. But good news my bud at the stop told me they come on sale in about a month so not to much longer befor were all rockin out

Guitar Hero Metallica Wont play on my Ps2

okay, try this: 1. Start up PS2 with no disc 2. select 'Browser', press triangle. 3. select 'Console', press triangle. 4. select 'Diagnostics', press X, select 'ON'. 5. press 'O' to back out of this menu. 6. select 'Playstation Drive', press triangle. 7. select 'Disc Speed', press X, select 'FAST'. 8. press 'O' to back out of menu. 9. turn off PS2. 10. insert disc. The Diagnostics should run and automatically adjust your PS2 to play the game. I got this "FIX" from someone who had the same problem. Hope this helps :D

In the Guitar Hero video options there is a way you can Calibrate the lag between your Wii and your TV.

PS3 Guitar Hero

Keep in mind that backwards compatibility is not 100% and no that controller will not work with the PS3...

Sure the other games work just fine but you are using a ps3 controller to play them correct??

Yes it is different. The same goes for trying to get a ps2 controller to work on a ps3, it's not gonna happen.

You need to get GH3 with the ps3 controller in order to rock out on the ps3....

No sound

i'm having the same problem. theyre not playing bass because it's on face off and pro face off too. it's also not the gh 3 disc because it does the same thing to me on gh 2 and rocks the 80s. it has something to do with the ps2.

No data for guitar hero III

I'm using the slim... maybe it is the type of memory card but guitar hero is the only game I've had a problem with. I just restarted the game and then beat it over again. After it said that there wasn't any data and I chose to make a new one, it said that there was data but it was corrupt. Hopefully it doesn't happen again, but I haven't had any trouble since I started over the other one.
