she got it from wal-mart, it has a picture of the x-plorer on the box but apparently the dude told her it would be a different guitar inside, why would they even ship this game out with the x-plorer?? im so damn confused and angry

Sounds like you just got hosed by wal-mart, take it back, get an exchange and open the box before you leave the store to check for the Les Paul.

This is bullcrap! I was pissed and came on this forum hoping to find somebody who had the same thing happen to them! I got the X-plorer controller too! I don't think walmart will do exchanges on electronics, video games, will they? I remember they wouldn't take back a return on PDZ.

Yeah WalMart got some deal where they would package Xplorers with GHIII. I bet they got a huge break on their cost to increase their profits.

I know there's a deal where you buy GH2 w/ Guitar and you get the GH3 for $10.00 More. I'll be getting my copy of GH3 in 40 Minutes so hopefully Wal-Mart here doesnt do the same thing to me, Cause I want my Les Paul.

=== EDIT ===

So I went to my Wal-Mart today and yea, every version is right except the 360 Version, they have it bundled with the Wired X-Plorer Guitar. The PS3, PS2 and Wii version have their proper controllers.

This just adds another reason to the "Hate Wal-Mart" List.

I ran into this when I went to walmart as well last night. Thankfully I noticed before I bought it, but I feel sorry for anyone who didn't.

Realize RedOctane is just as guilty as WalMart for this B.S.

glad i came on forums before i went out and bought mine.

i tihkn we might need to send some kind of message to wal-mart and redoctane saying that we wont trust them again unless they make up for this.

For the ones who bought the game with the x-plorer good luck trying to return it.

Wal-Mart is selling wired 360 bundles with the Xplorer guitar from GH2. They are also selling wired PS2 bundles that include the old SG from previous GH games. The boxes are clearly labeled.
