Seven45 Studios, a “music industry-born publisher and developer”, has announced Power Gig: Rise of the SixString for PS3 and Xbox 360 today. The game will use a new guitar controller issued by music instrument giant First Act; this controller will have strings rather than buttons, and what’s more, they’ll work as regular guitars when you’re not playing the game.
The game features it’s own universe with its own settings, politics, heroes, villains and more. Two play modes are available: traditional beat-matching and chording. Chording requires players to actually match the finger positions on the string, so think of it as a true guitar experience. Or a game most rock artists won’t bash. http://scrawlfx.com/2010/03/power-gig
