Weren't they going to go for Downloadable Content too? In any case, I might be waiting a little longer before I get it, especially if the new versions have DLC.

lol, they couldnt even put Stereo sound in the game...something that has been fairly standard since 1990!

Oh thank fucking god! I'm so pissed about the sound. It's horrible.

I swear this is about as hard as learning the actual piece.

Avoid Games Like the Plague, productivity++

The finger dexterity you must require for that looks insane! Smilie.

Good news on the remastering front.. it's what finally pushed me into getting it (HMV have it for fifty-odd quid compared to say Gamestations 70 quid!!! No, i don't work there, just really pleasantly surprised.

We won't be opening it til xmas day though and hopefully by then the publishers will be half-way to sorting this mono issue out.

Something tells me I'm not the only one who held off buying GHIII until the problem was addressed.

Well I'm getting it for Christmas, so I'm hoping I manage to get a normal disk, otherwise I still enjoy it anyway. I'll just have to turn it up louder I suppose.

I'll just have to wait and see, I'm glad they'll be replacing faulty disks for free though.

I think this video better shows how hard the above song can get. BTW, I'm pretty sure my copy has stereo, guess I got lucky

I don't post much, but I will appreciate any feedback on the posts I do make. Feel free to PM
