It had to happen eventually: Mock guitars are giving way to real ones in a new “Guitar Hero” type game announced today by a game studio affiliated with instrument maker First Act.
A specially designed electric guitar for “Power Gig: Rise of the SixString” will take input along its neck. It will also be playable as a real instrument that can be connected to a standard guitar amp.
” ‘Power Gig: Rise of the SixString’ is meant to be the answer for all of those gamers who have wanted to take their band game experience to the next level; we’re confident that players will agree that the transition from the existing games is both seamless and exhilarating,” Seven45 Studios CEO Bernard Chiu said in the release.
The game is coming to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in the fall. A preview is being shown today at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
