PS3 Guitar Hero World tour drum kit. What, when new, would have been in the box?


I have been offered a PS3 Guitar Hero World tour drum kit for my son. When new, what would have been included in the box?

Any software CDs for example. Any extra leads, or can we use the leads that came with the PS3 and the controllers etc.

I gather that some PS3 games have been issued for drum kits, do these need a basic drum software cd to be loaded before a Drum Game can be loaded?

Thanks for all help anyone can give.

  1. You don’t need a manual to figure out how to use them. If they have a USB cable attached, you simply connect it to one of the USB ports on your PS3. If there’s no USB cable and it takes batteries, you will need a wireless USB adapter made specifically for that drum kit. The PS3 is a game console, not a computer, so you don’t need to install anything. The drum kit is practically a controller, just like the PS3 controller, but its sole purpose is to use it to play drums on Guitar Hero and Rockband games (yes, Guitar Hero guitars, drum kits and microphones will work with Rockband games, and Rockband guitars, drum kits and micrphones will work with Guitar Hero games).

    From there, it’s just a matter of loading up Guitar Hero or Rockband, choosing a song (or songs) to play and hitting the color-coded pads that correspond to the colors that show up on-screen.

    If you don’t have a Guitar Hero game (must not be older than Guitar Hero: World Tour) or a Rockband game, the drums will be useless as you can’t use them for anything else.

  2. the drum kit just has the drums , drum pedal and cables needed to connect to the ps3 console , they made wireless and wired kits , the wireless would have a usb dongle to plug into the ps3 system and the cable that plugs the pedal to the drums , the wired kit has two cables , one goes to the pedal and the other is a long usb cable that plugs into the ps3 and the back of the drums

    there are manuals available online and it will show in the game manual how to connect the controllers so if you have world tour or band hero the games manuals will help

    there are no discs unless it was a bundle that came with the game and the guitar and mic controllers , the only games you can use those drums for would be guitar hero world tour and band hero , and maybe rock band 3 for ps3.
