Just a quick reminder for interested parties that Verizon has made good on its promise today to pick up Guitar Hero III Mobile
, a game that hopes to bring some fraction of the Guitar Hero franchise's wild success to the mobile world. The game comes bundled with 15 songs with more promised via monthly "song packs," but don't expect the rock star lifestyle to come cheap -- Guitar Hero III Mobile runs $4.49 per month or $11.99 for unlimited use, making it one of the more expensive games ever offered through a carrier's deck. Anyone out there planning to buy a phone with a big, comfortable keypad for the sole purpose of rocking out?
