– Seven45 Studios on Tuesday announced plans to release a music-based video
game for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 that utilizes an actual six-string
electric guitar as a controller. Set for release in the fall, "Power Gig:
Rise of the SixString" will allow fans to play in a typical beat-match
mode, as well as in "chord play" mode, where they will have to use
the correct placement of fingers to fret chords. The guitar controller will be
made by instrument manufacturer First Act, a sister company to Seven45 Studios.
