Seven45 Studios thinks Guitar Hero is for babies, and real men play Power Gig: Rise of the SixString.  This ain’t no red-yellow-orange-green plastic-toy guitar game, Power Gig was built from the ground up to work with a legitimate six-string guitar. Coming out for PS3 and 360, it uses proprietary technology “that can distinguish and recognize gamers’ input all along the guitar.” The axe also has all the internals needed for hookup to an amp, so you can use it as an actual guitar too. If you ain’t sold on this being a ‘real guitar simulator game’ type thing: “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.”

We wonder how much this will cost. No word on release date or pricing yet, or if it will even ever hit South African shores.
