Hi all.
Am thinking of getting into this game having read lots of rave reviews, but the more i read the more :confused: i get!

AM i right that GH V is for a complete band like Rock Band, and if so am I better off getting GH III for now as all I want is the guitar - no other instruments.

Also, If i get GH III I assume I could get GH V solus later on, and still have access to all DLC in the meantime?!?!!?!?

Thanks for any advice or opinions on which way to go.

I enjoyed the songs of GH3 best. GH5 has the better software and continued DLC support. GH3 DLC does not transfer to GH5.
