Question Power Gig - Rise of the Six String

I just got my Game Informer magazine and the inside cover shows an advertisement for a game called Power Gig Rise of the Six String, and it has a guitar with real strings! It doesnt have any release date, but it does say at the bottom that the 6 string guitar is compatible with Rock Band and Guitar Hero games, also that RB and GH controllers are compatible with Power Gig.

Has anyone heard anything else on this game, release date, track list?

It's set to come out a Oct 19th I believe. It has been dubbed the first music game to use a real guitar as a control. They are trying to beat rock band 3 to it by a week. My guess is this is just gonna be a ripoff of guitar hero and rock band and won't be any good. I know personally I am saving up for rock band 3. It has a much better reputation than a new comer trying to make it in the music game genre. Who knows though? It may be a pretty decent game.

Aha, I see your right. It is available at GameStop with a free T shirt for pre order. Release date 10/19. Damn that is almost a month away. I think I might check this bad boy out.

There whole world collapsed when Harmonix announced Pro instruments! The gameplay in this looks like garbage! I smell another Tony Hawks RIDE flop! (Sales wise) If anyone has not seen the gameplay yet have a look at this: ()

I love how they're acting like this idea is completely new and has never been thought of beforehand (*cough cough* Harmonix). The guy in the preview acts like no one had even considered the real guitar play.

First of all, Rock Revolution sucks. Why? For starters, there's no vocals - they took that out in case it impacted on Karaoke Revolution sales, which in any case was a flop compared to SingStar and Lips.

Guitar Hero wouldn't be so bad if the online worked smoothly - people know what I'm talking about here. The game more often than not tells you "session is no longer available" - very annoying.

I will possibly get this game (Rise of the Six String) unless the reviews say it super sucks. The playing interface looks a bit funky from the youtube video, but that ain't a problem for me.

I think the fact that there are only three threads here and all were started before release speaks for itself - Even the developers of the game didn't seem too enthusiastic about it.

So did anyone actually buy and/or try it?
I wonder how bad it really is, and how hard the platinum would be.

The video doesn't show much except the fact that it's looking a little weird.

Taken from Wiki:

Power Gig: Rise of the SixString has received mostly negative reviews for various reasons. William Abner of GameShark stated that "It's a bad time to release a new music game property -- and an even worse time to release a bad one."[10], alluding to the rhythm genre's poor sales performance in 2009.

Power Gig's guitar peripheral has received negative reviews. Griffin McElroy of Joystiq referred to the game as "a dumbfounding product...[centering] itself around a peripheral which is a real guitar, yet it doesn't allow the player to use the real guitar as if it were a real guitar. Instead, it settles for using a new toy to manipulate an old game -- but still manages to categorically fail at both."[11] McElroy also criticized the quality of the guitar, stating "As far as the quality of said sound -- well, it plays about as well as you'd expect a $180 guitar to play. Which is to say, not well at all".[11]

The game's story mode, soundtrack, and gameplay were also not well received. Abner has stated that "[even] if you grab an old instrument, you are basically just playing a cheap Guitar Hero/Rock Band knock off."[10] Jack DeVries of IGN refers to the story as "laughably bad...a futuristic tale of a city where music it outlawed, so rebel forces have to unite and rock out to take down the evil oppressive Headliner."[9] McElroy referred to the game's cutscenes as being of "CD-i quality". DeVries calls the soundtrack "the weakest setlist ever to grace a guitar game."[9] Mike Splechta of GameZone stated that "The set list is yet another disappointment. It has some variety, and features music that wasn't yet included in other music games, but most of it feels out of place and isn't very fun to play."


Damn, I didn't think it would do well, but I never though it would be THIS bad!!
