    Hi

    Been offered a PS3 (either preowned 60GB or new) for my 40th from my wife. I currently have a PS2 and have all the guitar hero games and just got World Tour at Christmas.

    I hope someone who has upgraded from PS2 to PS3 can answer this from experience. I've searched the forums but I haven't found a definite "Yes I have and here's how answer yet".

    Can I use the PS2 guitar and/or drum controller on the PS3? If I can't get my hands on a 60GB PS3, will the PS3 version of GHWT be able to use them?

    I have heard about PS2 to PS3 USB adapters - anyone got a link to one which definitely works with the guitar controllers? What about the drum controller?

    Thanks for any help.
    David

    ok none of the old GH games will work on the PS3 as no PS2-Ps3 adapters work with the guitar controllers,

    As for world tour i'm not sure how the setup is for the drums on the PS2 to comment.

    Hmmm - that's not what I wanted to hear. There might be hope for the drums as the set up guide had PS2 and PS3 instructions.
    Guess I'll just have to try it when I get it.

    The game won't work, the controllers will, as they're all USB :) I believe the PS2 and PS3 ones are identical :)

    That's not entirely correct...

    I was trying to get my gh2 guitar to work on my 60gig ps3 when playing ps3 world tour. It connected and I could select and go back, but could not scroll up and down the menus. Any suggestions?

    I think it depends on the USB adapter used. I've only tried my GH2 guitar with the PS3 version of Guitar Hero 3 but it works fine (so long as you have the specific USB adapter I linked to).
