i laugh because i’m horrified.

there’s a slew of guitar playing video games out there now. i never really thought dmb would agree to be in one. but they have– a game also containing the music of eric clapton and kid rock.

im sorry…but WHAT! to whom are they marketing this game? (don’t answer that. i don’t even want to speculate.)

in case you don’t believe me:

“Dave Matthews Band is stepping into the realm of music based video gaming. According to businesswire.com, Seven45 Studios will produce a video game with Eric Clapton, Dave Matthews Band and Kid Rock music. The game, titled Power Gig: Rise of the SixString will be available October 2010 on Playstation3 and XBOX game systems (no luck for us Wii’ers).

Like the game title hints, the guitar peripheral is a functioning six-string electric guitar. So it’ll be kind of tough, but much more realistic than other guitar games, in theory. The official quote from the Dave Matthews Band sums up the thought process on the game. “We love the thought that fans of ours who’ve never picked up an instrument can now play our music on a real guitar and experience what we love to do day in and day out.”

The official site, powergig.com, offers a bit more explanation of how the guitar works.”
