Power Gig: Rise of the Six String Band Kit

The next evolution of band games is coming your way this fall with Power Gig: Rise of the SixString - the first game to feature a real electric guitar controller! The game immerses players in a rock and roll universe where music is might and rockers battle each other in a struggle for power and freedom. You and two of your friends take on the role of rocker heroes as you attempt to unite and retake the world from the oppressive rule of the Headliner.The game features a set of revolutionary new instrument peripherals: the SixString Guitar Controller, AirStrike Drum Controller and MojoVox Microphone. The SixString Guitar pulls you into a more authentic rock experience with real strings instead of buttons and lets you take the experience even further through Power Chord mode, which blends real power chords into gameplay. The icing on the cake - the SixString is also a fully functional real electric guitar that can be plugged into any standard guitar amp!The AirStrike Drum takes you away from the bulky and noisy drum controllers on the market by integrating breakthrough sensing technology in the sticks and the base unit that lets you play the game using natural drumming motions to strike the target zones in the air above the base. The AirStrike Drum can even tell which stick you are using, opening up gameplay possibilities never seen before in band games. And when you're done rocking, its compact design lets you store it or take it almost anywhere.The MojoVox Mic gives you the chance to unleash your voice and tap into the power of rock and roll - sing it loud and proud as you show the world how it's done, one song at a time. Power Gig ups the ante on the music front with a host of killer tracks, led by three music superstars that are exclusive to our game - Eric Clapton, Dave Matthews Band and Kid Rock. This marks the first time ever that master recordings of songs from each of the three artists will appear as part of a band video game. Power Gig will also feature a host of songs from major label artists and emerging talent from the indie scene, many of which available for the first time ever in music games.

Well too start off this game looks really interesting,but what bothers me is RockBand 3 is coming out with the exact same thing and there's going too be more songs on RB3 than on this game.I for a fact only saw 2 or 3 songs that i would probably play.But with the rockband music store i have more too play with and with the upcoming songs with RB3.But the guitars for this game looks a lot better than the fender bender for RB3.So what I'll do is buy the guitars from this game and use them for RB3.

Not Worth It

The whole point of RB and GH were to be able to play instruments without knowing how to really do it. Adding a real guitar is useless. You'll have to actually learn how to play in order to play the game. And if you know how to play real guitar, then you wont be playing the video game, you'll be playing your guitar. I think this and the new guitar for RB3 are a waste of time.

A Few Years Too Late

The game looks like it is going to knock guitar hero and rock band out of the water with the new guitar controller that is modeled after a real guitar. However with the Drum kit being "Sensors" and not a real drum kit like RB and GH, and the fact that this game dose not have any vocals. I have a feeling this is going to be an OK game but not earth shattering. Especially with RB3 using a real Guitar and a KEYBOARD. This game is a few years late into the Music Game Battle and may fall off the map just like Rock Revolution did.

rock band is not useing a realy guitar at all power gig is. rock band is us a guitar with more frets and fake plastic strings. Power gig is using a real guitar, real strings, and i think if you realy want to learn how to play guitar you should go with power gig because you use real power chords and you laern the charisitics of a real guitar but thats just my opinion

This game is going to be the new stepping stone for band type music games. If they make a sequel (and they should) they need to have Bass guitar in it too. It will up the game play and intensity soo much into the game, and playing outside of the game for real!

Needs more Track Depth!!!
Posted 9/26/10
The concept is great! Unfortunately, Rock Band 3 is already doing it with a REAL Fender. Add to it RB3's massive track library, PowerGig is going to seem like training wheels. PG has a decent track list, but with only 20 tracks, the game play will suffer. The lack of a Bass player also will hurt this game! However, I like the drumming idea. Owning the DrumRocker, it is still loud, so the AirStrike may prove to be a great improvement.
