Want the Guitar Hero wireless bundle? Don’t go to Wal-Mart

Forget to make a reservation and find yourself bolting to a 24 hour Wal-Mart at 3 am? Be warned: Reports have been flooding in that Wal-Mart is selling the Guitar Hero 3 bundle with some slight alterations. What kind of alterations, you may ask? Well, it’s nothing big, really. Just a minor change to the equipment. The guitar contained within just happens to be the old one from Guitar Hero 2. Ahem. Well. Yes.

While some of you may be too excited to be bothered by this tidbit, fans who have been fervently awaiting the release will be downright pissed if they get this box and don’t realize it until they get home. Reported apperances include the Xbox 360 Xplorer and the PS2 red SG guitar instead of the Kramer and Les Paul bundles expected with GH3. As noted by our own Grim, the price does differ ($90 for the old guitar bundle and $100 for the wireless new bundle.)

If you go, go armed with this important information, as the last thing Destructoid wants is to hear the bloodcurdling screams of our unhappy readers as they beat an elderly Wal-Mart greeter to a pulp.
