Platform: Xbox 360 | Edition: Guitar Kit

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.

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.

Well to start off, I only bought this for the guitar. I have rock band 3 and i didnt want to spend 150$ on a pro guitar, and this is a 35$ alternitive. I must admit i didnt have high expectations, but, it works great! and the tracks on the game are really fun to play, its no rock band or guitar hero, i must admit that, but its a interesting take on those games, and has a rather interesting story mode. overall if your a guitar game fan and really dont want to spend the money, its great, it comes with 3 picks, set of strings, and the guitar, stringed and ready, you can even plug it up to an amp and play it!!! the learning curve is a bit steep, but once you get the fingering down its alot easier to play. Being this was the first game to use a real guitar, its a great piece of history as well as a fun time with friends

If you are looking for something challenging then look no further. The guitar looks and feels just a like a real one and could honestly probably be used as one since it has strings and can be tuned just like one.

this is the absolute top in gaming when it comes to any of the music games. the game itself has loads of great tunes you'll spend hours and hours enjoying but the guitar controller is a little difficult.

its great because its a great Xbox controller and you can use this with Rock Band 3.

as for looks, its all serious ROCK N' ROLL.

i have as of yet not plugged this controller/guitar into and amp so i can not comment on the tone quality or anything on that end.

now don't think you're going to be able to play this without strings if you have those sensitive delicate fingertips, because it will not work without the strings on it.
you will learn how to play guitar playing this game, but keep in mind you will also be shredding your finger tips till you build guitar player callouses on your fingers. this controller is not to be used only once in a while, as the callouses will go away after a little time and make it hard or painful to play after a long break away from it.

The game itself is better than the reviews would lead you to believe. I am more interested than function than form, and the game gets that job done just fine. I have not spent a ton of time yet with the Rise of the SixString game, but I didn't find it all that different from the competition or objectionable. I would say the graphics aren't "bad" but more in a different artistic style that is being interpreted as primitive.

Really, my primary interest was the guitar controller and I have mainly been playing the Power Gig guitar with Rock Band/Guitar Hero/Band Hero. I was intending to purchase the Rock Band 3 Fender Squier for the RB3 Pro mode, but the super low discounted price on the Power Gig made it worth a try first. Initially I thought I was settling - now I believe this was a great choice!

The guitar is suprisingly heavy! It is plastic, but it looks extremely cool and doesn't feel cheap. The frets have individual string pick-ups for all 6 strings in the positions for the normal 5 color controller buttons, plus a space (detected as a non-color button), then repeats again (unmarked) further up the neck. The controller appears to be detected as having the touch sensitive slide buttons as found on some of the Guitar Hero guitars, although I haven't fully explored this capability yet. You can play normally from either button position regardless. This is a nice feature that I'm not sure is documented.

The guitar as a musical instrument is pretty much a novelty. It does work, and it doesn't go out of tune instantly as I have seen in the other reviews; but it is inherently out of tune with itself. An open string tuning will leave you with a relative tuning that is off, and visa versa. i.e.
