In the October issue of Game Informer, the magazine gave a full review of Guitar Hero III: The review called the Wii guitar the best of the guitar peripherals, praising the vibration option.
I have it on Wii and it's great. I think the 360 is probably the better system, particularly for graphics, but GH isn't exactly graphics intenstive.
IGN rated them separately, giving it a 8.9 on 360&PS3, 8.6 on Wii and 8.0 on PS2.
Gamespot/CNet gave it 8.0 on both.
XBOX gives you the ability to download a couple of songs. Downloading for GH3 isn't yet available from Nintendo, but may be in the future.
Teh gamespot review also says, "The Wii version lets you play both random players and friends, though the friend options are limited to game-specific friend codes. The Xbox 360 version probably has the greatest ease of use online, with all the standard Xbox Live accoutrements, as well as easy access to downloadable songs (though, depending on your opinion of the pricing of said songs, that might be a blessing or a curse). "
Also Bret Michaels appears as himself in the 360 version only, for some reason. Not that that's any great thing.
If you have a GH2 guitar already for XBox it will work on GH3, so that could be a factor.
Having the guitar wireless withthe Wii is great. No wires getting in the way. However, you can't get a 2nd guitar with it until late January, unless you buy the whole bundle again.
Gamespot's review goes on to say, the Wii "has the most unique guitar of all of the available versions, in that it features a connector for the Wii Remote. The remote fits snugly into a port on the back of the guitar, and the remote essentially takes over as the guitar's tilt sensor. It also does a few unique things, such as buzzing slightly when you engage star power, and playing all the missed note sounds through the Wii Remote speaker."
Finally, it seems it's both easier to find and cheaper in the 360 version, if that's a factor.
