Guitar Hero is undoubtedly one of the most popular video games in recent memory. There is just something about the game that speaks to the hidden musician in people, which can account for its huge fan base of thousands and thousands of people all over the world belonging to different age groups. With every new release, the game just keeps on getting bigger and better, and with the way things are going it seems that its worldwide domination is unstoppable.
Now the game is set to conquer even more ground and capture a whole new market in its wake, with the release of the Guitar Hero III Mobile on AT&T. The game was actually released previously on the Verizon network by the San Francisco based mobile gaming company, Hands-On Mobile. With the recent announcement of AT&T that it would be releasing Guitar Hero III Mobile however, users can expect to be playing this highly engrossing and fun filled game on their J2ME phones.

Guitar Hero III Mobile was launched on 30 handsets at the end of February 2008, among them the Motorola V3 RAZR and the Sony Ericcson 810. That is only the beginning however, as the game is set to be made available to even more handsets in the next few months. Many mobile gaming users were understandably a little bit disappointed at this staggered launch since it meant that there was no guarantee that their particular handset would have been supported when the game was made available. Hands-On Mobile did encourage excited mobile gaming fanatics to check with AT&T for availability information for their particular mobile phones.

Actually this rush to get their hands on Guitar Hero III Mobile hardly comes as a surprise given the company’s offer of a respectably large selection of bonus songs for early subscribers. Users who managed to sign up by March 1 received the standard start-up song package that comes with every purchase, in addition to the playlist for the month of March. This includes songs such as “Freebird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd, “War Pigs” by Black Sabbath, and “Search and Destroy” by Iggy Pop. Users who didn’t manage to make the March 1 subscription period cutoff had to make do with the standard start-up song package until April, when they finally gained access to the selection of bonus songs for that month.

In addition to the excitement offered by the game itself, signing up for Guitar Hero III Mobile on the AT&T network lets you take advantage of the Java platform that allows a few upgrades to the BREW version of the game. This is the same version that is currently available on Verizon phones and comes with slightly larger and clearer graphics, as well as a novel new function that you may or may not find welcome depending on how good you are: the phone will vibrate every time you miss a note!
Finally, the songs included in Guitar Hero III Mobile will now reside on your AT&T phones, which means that aspiring mobile gaming “guitar heroes” don’t have to download them for every game!
