Power Gig rocks the expo, gameplay not included

Power Gig, possibly the next generation of music games, made a cameo appearance of sorts at PAX. Representatives promised actual gameplay at the upcoming E3 and said the game would be released this Fall on XBOX360 and PS3. I believe this was the first real-time exhibit of the guitar controller. One has to wonder how realistic the other instruments will be, and further if the gaming audience that has pumped millions into RockBand and Guitar Hero will want to learn how to practice and play more realistically. Either way, the controller seems to add a pretty novel approach to a formula that began with Konami in Japan around a decade ago with GuitarFreaks.
