Guitar Hero/Rock Band Instrument Compatability

Post by Sun-Wukong » Fri Nov 13, 2009 8:31 pm

I'm considering getting a few games from both series, and I wanted to make sure I have my stuff straight. If I'm correct, you can use Guitar Hero controllers on Rock Band, but not the other way around?

I'm pretty sure it depends on the system, but I know from personal experience that guitar hero controllers work in rock band on PS2. I also know that Guitar Hero controllers do not work on rock band on wii. It's kind of a big mess. :|

I have Wii, and I didn't realize that the RB guitars don't work in any of the GH games.... I'm glad the first guitar game I got for Wii was Guitar Hero: World Tour with the 2 guitars, because the only game I can't play with them is Rock Band 1.

I've found this list to be much more comprehensive than the one Aguiluz posted.
