Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock (PlayStation 2)
|Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock|
Guitar Hero III is the first game in the series to not be developed by Harmonix and the first to feature actual real life guitarists. Through the fire and the flames, we carry on...

Full versions of the images of Axel Steel and Casey Lynch which appear on the Options menu version of the credits. The final game uses a completely flat background as opposed to a background with these images overlaid on it. These versions of the images lack the bluish tint that the final has.
A simple placeholder graphic for missing textures. Similar images appear in later games in the series.
Battle Mode Item Placeholders
Several obvious placeholder images for some of the battle mode's items can be found in the directory with the other battle mode-specific images.
|Difficulty Up||Double Notes||Lefty Notes|
Among the rest of the game's movies (found within the aptly named "MOVIES" folder) is a short, audioless placeholder movie under the name "DEFAULT.PSS". The image used in the background of the video is notable as it shows off a vastly different looking HUD from earlier in development, as well as a different, cruder looking note highway. Additionally, the logo for the game differs slightly from the final version, with the "III" being taller than in the final and having a point on the side that is also not in the final.
In the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC versions of the game, Poison singer Bret Michaels acts as the singer on the songs "Talk Dirty to Me" and "Go That Far". He was cut from the PlayStation 2 and Wii versions, but in the laziest way possible: although every mechanic to put him on the stage is there, his model and textures were replaced with a duplicate of the default male singer's. It is unknown why this is the case, though it may have been due to the developer's dissatisfaction with how his downgraded model looked. Strangely enough, his name is misspelled as "Brett" internally.
Two different build dates are present, as with every Guitar Hero game after III.
