Last year, purchasers of Guitar Hero III for the Nintendo Wii might have noticed that the game would produce sound only in mono, even though it was advertised as using Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound. Activision responded to complaints about the issue by announcing that it would fix the sound for future pressings of the game, and it would start a replacement program to get corrected discs in the hands of the game's early adopters.
Now Activision has detailed the first steps affected gamers should take in order to get a replacement Guitar Hero for the Wii. North American gamers can now "pre-register" for a free replacement disc by calling (866) 780-8286 Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., Eastern time. Activision will then let them know when the new discs are available and how they can obtain one.
Replacement discs are expected to ship out early this year. Further questions can be sent to Activision customer support.
