Peripheral maker, Logitech is releasing a $200 Guitar Hero controller for the Xbox 360. They already released one of these for the PS2 & PS3.
The controller is made out of wood (it has a maple neck), has metal frets, strums quietly, is a licensed Xbox 360 product, and is built to the proper size specifications of standard Guitar Hero controllers.
If you are thinking about buying this, please stop.
I’m all for Guitar Hero, but at $200 you can get yourself a starter guitar and amp (the real kind). If you are willing to drop two-hundo on a fake guitar, maybe it’s time to try the real thing.
For the very same price you can buy a Fender Strat Squire pack. The pack includes everything you need to start playing. It’s not exactly a fancy instrument, but it’s a great place to start and see if it sticks.
Say no to $200 video game controllers, and say yes to the real thing.
