    Quick heads up for international PS3 Pro guitarists. We just got word that there are issues with the practice section of the Pro guitar upgrade for Cutting Crew – “(I Just) Died in Your Arms” in SCEE. This issue shouldn't affect Quickplay or other game modes, but you may encounter missing sections of the note chart in practice mode. We've requested that this version be replaced ASAP and we'll follow up once we know more.
