I can see how strings would help make guitar more realistic but it seems like the game goes in the opposite direction with its weird air guitar peripheral. I think the RB and GH drums feel natural and it seems to me that air drumming would be hard because you can't bounce the sticks off anything. What do other people think>

don't know if you've seen this yet...What the hell is it? Are those drum pads that you can hit?

From the website, it shows that you don't hit them.

I still don't understand why guitar is more near to the reality but the drum is only "air drumming". The GH solution is MUCH better. RB needs cymbals that must be bought apart -meh-.

the worst aspect of the game is still the interface, too much similar at the bad Rock Revolution one.. :uzi:

They have a drum kit with cymbals, but they're not that great.

I got to play the drums for this at PAX, it actually isn't that bad for just keeping a beat. Problem is, the more complicated things make it really difficult. And yes, I did feel completely ridiculous on stage air drumming to Incubus. Then again, the drums are compatible with the Rock Band drums, but I have heard tell that one of the achievements requires you to have the Power Gig drums.

The whole concept of the drum kit amuses me. It's all motion control in the end.

And Power Gig is supposed to be this game that gives you a realistic music experience.

Cause you can't get more realistic then air drums, right? C:

the air drums sound like a bad idea to me
i have been using the rock band drums 5 piece and they work really good for activating the mojo thing
