Unfortunately her inability to speak was due to the arrival of 'another guitar!!!!!' controller at the house. The excellent build quality, professional feel and overall satisfaction of the product did little to impress her.
I was delighted though, it looks, feels and plays fantastic. I've tried it with GHIII, GHWT RBACDC and RB1 on the PS3 and all were great. The controller feels faster, that is there is no perceivable delay from striking the note to it appearing on screen. I know that there is always audio/visual delay and that is why the games have calibration settings, but part of that equation has always featured controller delay as well and it just feels that this one is more responsive than the standard plastic ones bundled with the games.
The result with PS2 wasn't so great - I was expecting full compatibility with GH GHII GH80's and GHIII. But no, none of these games are supported, only the newest GHWT can use this controller on the PS2. This is probably because it is a USB dongle and only GHWT contains the drivers to use it. Since I don't own GHWT for PS2 I was unable to test it but it does say on the box it is supported.
But for the GH/RB fan who already has the games and has money burning a hole waiting for the next purchase, this is it! buy it now and never look back (but figure out first how your going to justify it to your wife - a bribe of flowers and shoes perhaps?).
In summary, it's bigger, heavier, plays better and ultimately brings you closer to the rock god experience that these games are all about.
For those about to rock...........
