Lock up your daughters: Guitar Hero III update is now live

Forget all of the other patch nonsense — Neversoft and Activision/Red Octane have issued a free update for Guitar Hero III, which should now be available on Xbox 360 (Worldwide) and the Playstation 3 in North America. 

While it would have been hilarious if the update include support for the Rock Band Fender Stratocaster peripherals, that’s sadly not the case. The updates and changes are as follows: 

* Improve Online Quick Match results and reduce “Failed to Connect to Server” messages.

* Introduce calibration screen improvements, helping users with high lag AV systems, and Playstation 3 users with Dolby Digital enabled.

* Add the Co-Op Quickplay mode for Playstation 3 users.

* Enable the Hyperspeed cheat to work in online games.

* Include various stability improvements and fixes.

European and Australian PS3 owners might have to wait awhile — the update has been submitted to Sony, so it should just be a matter of time before it goes live.
