Good thing GameFly will be offering up the game for rent. This will be like Guitar Hero 3.5 or something like that for me.

Nice. I'm personally holding out for Rock Band, then I'll buy GH3 game only. Wireless Rock Band controllers are going to be available separately right?

Yeah, but you will need an Xplorer or Les Paul to play your GHIII.

I don't think the seperate Rock Band guitars are wireless, I'm pretty sure they're still wired.

Not entirely sure though.

That seems like a big disadvantage to me, glad I went with GHIII, might pick up Rock Band game only at some point.

Personally I was pretty unimpressed by the RB guitar anyway. If you thought the GH guitars were flimsy, you ain't seen nothin' yet. Try not to breath on the thing or it might break..! But yeah I've got 5 of these damn toy guitars here already....grrrrr.

any one know if it will be a standard usb hub, proprietary connectors, how many ports, etc.

Dunno, but my local Best Buy already has the hub out on the shelf for purchase.
