That’s exactly what happened when SPIN Magazine tried to give its pick for the holidays. Out of the three plastic instrument games that came out in the past two months, two of them were among the best ever released. Which one do you think SPIN chose? The third one, which we have deemed as a title that has the features list, gameplay, and graphics of a previous generation title: Power Gig: Rise of the SixString.
Now, we don’t know if this was a sponsored list, because Power Gig’s response to us was that the article is not available online, but we do know that they are very excited about it.
Below is an excerpt from SPIN Magazine’s list, so definitely check that out. Let us know what you think about Power Gig being named SPIN Magazine’s top holiday pick rather than the amazing Rock Band 3 or Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock in the comments section!
Just in time for holiday gift giving, Power Gig: Rise of the SixString (Seven45 Studios; for Sony’s PS3 and the Xbox 360; $180) features a working electric guitar.
The battery-powered wireless model features the familiar Xbox connect and four-way directional pad on the front for switching between menus. But make no mistake: There are six tunable strings and inside are the guts of an electric guitar. So you can plug it into an amp and hammer out power chords.
You can choose from different rock personae, play in different clubs, and even compete to return the lost mojo to the fictional world of Ohm. Sensors inside the guitar’s neck detect where your fingers are positioned on the fretboard, what string you’re holding down, and how hard you’re strumming.
Power Gig comes with 70 songs, ranging from thrashers like the Hives’ “Tick Tick Boom”…and it’s so addictive you won’t notice when your virgin fingertips start bleeding on the steel strings.
