Geeks Gripe Over "Guitar Hero lll" Sound Snafu

12/13/2007 2:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Hardcore gamers are squealing in a new lawsuit that the hugely popular "Guitar Hero lll" video game doesn't pump out surround sound while being played on Nintendo Wii. Beat it nerd!
Guitar Hero
TMZ has obtained the class action suit filed by one distraught player in Federal Court alleging that Activision, who makes the highly addictive guitar game, claims that when it's played on the Wii, the audio is in Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound. The addicts say it just ain't so! The suit claims the game actually "only permits mono sound."

The true miracle -- that this player could rip himself away from the game long enough to actually file a lawsuit.

In response to ?

You play the game with the Guitar that comes WITH the game you tard.

You will be able to get a new game disc after the first of the year that fixes the mono/sterio issue.

Hey, Guitar Hero is a fun game that everyone can enjoy -- unlike these ultra violent shoot 'em ups. Would you be making fun of them if it was Manhunt 2?

And since the game is all about "playing" and enjoying music in a social setting you'd think the geeks at Activision would at least be able to give everyone stereo sound!

I think these gamers have a valid gripe. Here's hoping Activision will listen to the fans and give 'em some stereo sound next time around.

You can't take it back to the store moron, EVERY version of the game has mono sound instead of the quoted Dolby Pro Logic II Surround and Stereo sound.

Also, the lame gaming stereotypes are not appreciated. 2/3 of the population play video games, and 2/3 of the population are not lame geeks/nerds. Get with the times.

Not a band geek    

Real guitar players are the nerds. I'm not wasting years of my life learning to play some complex instrument badly when I can pretend that I'm good at it in mere hours.
