Strum real strings in new guitar game
Want to Rock with a real guitar on your console?
There's an upcoming musical video game that lets players strum a real six-string electric guitar instead of tapping buttons on a fake instrument. The game is called Power Gig: Rise of the SixString!
Seven45 (who are the makers of the game & guitar) hopes “Power Gig” will lure gamers ready for a new challenge, one that feels closer to playing a real instrument than strapping on a “Rock Band” accessory and tapping buttons.
Power Gig: Rise of the SixString will hit shelves in the fall on Playstation 3 & Xbox 360, the new guitar will be compatible with existing guitar hero & rock band games.
