PS3 Fanboy hands-on: Nyko's Front Man guitar

The popularity of games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero has created an extraordinary demand for guitar peripherals. However, many PS3 fans are left cold knowing that their Guitar Hero controllers won't work in Rock Band, and vice versa.

Does the Nyko footswitch allow the official Rock Band guitar to work in Guitar Hero (and/or vice versa)?
If so, I eagerly await the first teardown and homebrew circuit posting.

nice the strum bar isnt mushy. def checking this out.

That was my first question to, I so despise that Rock Band guitar strictly for that reason...such an otherwise-fabulous peripheral hindered by such a massive Achilles heel of a strum bar.

Actually, I originally thought it was broken, until the replacement EA sent me made me realize that it was actually the nature of it's bonehead design.

Gotta definitely check this one out...unless of course, those scoundrels at Activision finally mans up and allows Sony to release that GH/RB compatibility patch.

@ torch

thats patch would be awesome if they finally let it go thru. why 360 and ps3 is still a question that hasnt been answered. have you played the new guitar?

Torch3929d ago (Edited 3929d ago )

Good point about the 360...I imagine it's got something to do with the PS3's technology (peripheral synchronization).

Nope, haven't tried the new guitar...nor have I heard of it till now...but I sure am interested thanks to this story.

Nice. I hope they have a 360 one as well. My Guitar Hero guitar has a loose connection that sometimes causes me to lose held notes.
