Product Description

Power Gig: Rise of the SixString will transport players to an entirely new universe, with its own mythology, politics, settings, heroes and villains, where music rules all. On the gameplay front, Power Gig uses new technology that represents the next evolution of music performance games to provide all players — from casual gamers to the hardcore, from those who have never before picked up a guitar to those who play guitar on a regular basis — with a more authentic and fun experience. The game offers two overarching modes of play. In addition to traditional beat-matching that will be familiar to fans of the band game genre, Power Gig also introduces the option to switch on chording, or chord play. Chording presents the added challenge of playing the game using chords that require specific finger placement on the strings. As players progress through the game, becoming more comfortable with a genuine guitar and potentially choosing to play real power chords, they will find that the byproduct of playing the game is coming away from it with an understanding of some real-life guitar fundamentals.

Game Overview
On the gameplay front, Power Gig uses new technology that represents the next evolution of music performance games to provide all players - from casual gamers to the hardcore, from those who have never before picked up a guitar to those who play guitar on a regular basis - with a more authentic and fun experience. The game offers two overarching modes of play. In addition to traditional beat-matching that will be familiar to fans of the band game genre, Power Gig also introduces the option to switch on chording, or chord play. Chording presents the added challenge of playing the game using chords that require specific finger placement on the strings. As players progress through the game, becoming more comfortable with a genuine guitar and potentially choosing to play real power chords, they will find that the byproduct of playing the game is coming away from it with an understanding of some real-life guitar fundamentals.

The World of Ohm
Power Gig: Rise of the SixString takes place in Ohm, a world where music is power. Rockers are the guardians of musical clans, serving their leaders with the mysterious powers of music and Mojo. You and two of your friends take on the role of these Rockers as they encounter power struggles and intrigue. In Ohm, alliances are forged and broken, rulers rise and fall, and heroes are made as competition rages among the rocker clans. Music is power…it's time to play.

Revolutionary Instrument Peripherals

  • The SixString Guitar: 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!

Music
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 are available for the first time ever in music games.

Compatibility
Power Gig: Rise of the SixString and all of its controllers are compatible with Rock Band® & Guitar Hero® games and peripherals*. Go to powergig.com/compatibility for more information.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall I like it, but could be improved. November 4, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Guitar Kit
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I like the game. It is funny to really pluck the strings to your favorite songs. The guitar has some weight and feels like decent guitar. It is a 3/4 scale guitar, but when you are sitting on a lazy boy it feels like the perfect size. This guitar can be used on a real amp like a real electric guitar. This game has some great songs. In my opinion, Rock Band 3 and Power Gig beat Guitar Hero Warriors of Rock as far as the set list goes. This is fun when you get past the learning curve. This is also a great "experiment" to see if the kiddos will really try to learn to play guitar without buying them a $400+ quality guitar.

Now, time for the nitpicks. There is a major learning curve to this. If you have children or you yourself get frustrated easily and might throw a guitar then this may not be the product for you. The rock band 2 and lower as well as guitar hero use the plastic guitars and feel very playskool at times. The good thing about them is that when you are selecting the kind of note (color area) there is a little gap that you can feel with your fingers that lets you know I am going from a green to yellow. With a real guitar this note selection becomes much harder. There is no gap telling you you are changing colors. You have to take a mental note or look down to see. Another problem is the way guitars play the note. On the neck (slender part of the guitar where you specify the note) you have to press down the string till it comes in contact with this slender metal tab. Your fingers may be on a string in the green area, but you have to press that string down and it has to "TOUCH" the metal tab. If you don't press hard enough, full touch the tab, or let go of the tab and retouch the tab then you will be missing notes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful! October 30, 2010
By Mike
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Guitar Kit
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm going to make this short. This game has to be the worst piece of garbage that I've seen in a while. The song selection is alright. It could be better. As for the guitar, the previous person stated, "the only real thing about this guitar are the strings". I have to add to that. The strings and the pick are the only thing real about this guitar. The graphics are Xbox 1 or Playstation 2 graphics. It doesn't teach you how to play guitar. It teaches you how to play some power cords but you really have no clue what your playing. You really have to press on the frets for it to realize that you are actually pressing on them. They claim that anyone can pick this up and play it. Even on easy it's not that easy. Don't waste your time with this thing. Get Rock Band 3 and wait for the Fender Squier to be released. Trust me. I purchased Power Gig and returned it back to the store telling them it defective. I didn't even want to waste my time selling it on ebay. Trust me when I tell you. Read other reviews and check out video reviews on the internet before considering this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite Surpised and Content with this Purchase. June 16, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Guitar Kit
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I was at Big Lots a few days ago and my girlfriend and I noticed this game and it was $100 off. We thought it to be a pretty good deal and went home to find reviews. We found HORRIBLE reviews of this game and it didn't stop us from buying it once we realized there was a REAL guitar, not a toy one. As a matter of fact, we both think this guitar is 10 times (At Least) better than any other game controller out there. Yes, it is very hard to get used to and it is hard to play on certain songs, but man it works perfect as you can expect. The game is different, the graphics are a new interpretation to the genre of guitar games which in itself is appealing. Let's face it, all of these games are over-priced and all the same, there isn't much variation going on anymore. The guitar is what pulled us in because it was only $25, I'm actually getting a guitar for my birthday so this was an added bonus. I'm now able to play around with this and beat on it so I can learn accuracy and speed with finger placement and strumming, that is a great benefit to me since I don't want to ruin the guitar I have on the way. The songs on the game are pretty good, there aren't too many great ones, but previous guitar games have taken the greatest songs you could possibly put on there. There was some poor song choices because I think they could have done better, but all in all the game is fine, I enjoy it and I'm liking the practice this gives me before my guitar comes here next month. For $25 you cannot go wrong at all. I think this guitar is by far more superior to the Rock Band 3 guitar, that one is $275 and it doesn't even have strings all the way up the neck, ridiculous. Thanks to whoever made this awesome game and guitar, great innovative thinking man, I'd definitely buy this again and recommend this to a friend. Game 3 1/2 *, guitar 4 1/4 *.

5.0 out of 5 stars PG Amazing Game November 9, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Guitar Kit|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is an amazing game. You actually have a real guitar. I have to disagree with other reviewers. They say that they have played guitar for years and this one is garbage. When you review you have to be as partial as possible. I have played the guitar as a hobby for a wile and I find this guitar pretty descent. This is a plastic guitar and is a 3/4 scale, and it is pretty obvious that down scale guitar have some disadvantages compared to a full size guitar regarding the brand and the materials. There are some people making statements that the guitar doesn't stay in tune very well. If you really know about guitars you would know that even $1000 plus guitars when they have new strings they go out of tune very fast until they get loose after a couple of days of playing several hours. Most of the important musicians in the world have 2 or more guitars for a concert and they change the guitar every couple of songs so a musical technician tune the guitar for them. As simple as that.

For me the guitar works well, and it has a pretty decent sound. You have to remember that this is a $120 dollar guitar. What are they expecting a $1300 Gibson Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar. Dont make me laugh.

The game graphics are mediocre but the game play is good and gives you a good basic for cords playing and good finger agility.

Get ready to burn the tip of your fingers if you are a beginner with string instruments. That's a natural process.

I hope you enjoy the game and the guitar as much as me.
