Guitar Hero III turns PC and Mac to 11

The graphics will be scalable too, so it'll look great on your fancy rig, but can be dialed back enough to run on your laptop - which technically makes this the first portable version of the game (unless you had a PStwo with a portable screen).

The PC and Mac versions are targeted to hit shelves on or within a week of the console versions' Oct 28 date. The only question mark left is the fate of downloadable content. There's plenty in the pipeline, but exactly how it will be made available is still unannounced - it's copyrighted music, so Aspyr will need a secure delivery method similar to Xbox LIVE.

This is not to say this version won't be hackable - we're sure players with more ambition than scruples will be shredding along to everything from J-pop to the Teletubbies theme within days.

I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
