Rock Band 3 Squier Stratocaster plays both real and virtual guitar… at the same time (via Engadget)

As unfair as it is, what initially gave us hesitation about Mad Catz and Squier’s Stratocaster Pro guitar controller was that, well, it’s Fender’s second-tier brand. Despite these prejudices from our youth, Harmonix pretty much sold us on it with one pretty badass trick: the ability to simultaneously play Rock Band 3 on Pro Expert and rock the same tune through an amplifier.

Watch the video to see it in action. This is a crazy step forward for music video games and could be a downright interesting way to teach people how to play guitar.

      It’s an unfortunate choice, but I understand why they went with it for pricing’s sake.

      Still looking forward to what this means for music games in general.
