Executive Overview

dreamGEAR's newest video game accessory (which garnered an Innovations 2009 Design and Engineering Award honoree status) is the WarBeast PS3 Wireless Guitar. The WarBeast is a full-size wireless guitar controller compatible with the PS3 that is fully licensed by iconic heavy metal guitar manufacturer B.C. Rich. It is designed to bridge the gap between professional guitars and gaming equipment. It is compatible with both Rock Band and Guitar Hero (and probably Rock Revolutions but no one plays that game anyhow).

DreamGear WarBeast PS3 Guitar

The guitar looks awesome and feels a bit more solid in the hands than your standard game controllers. The neck features the same dual controls that exist both on top and bottom for tighter control during solos. This is something a lot of people are going to really enjoy using. It's about as close to the real thing as gamers will likely get without strings.

I played the Warbeast a little last weekend. I guess I'm getting used to it. It's still a little awkward, but it's so damn cool looking that I think I'll keep it.

I was getting my Mustang's windows tinted yesterday, and there was a Guitar Center right next door, so I popped my head in for the hell of it. I saw the Warbeast on the wall!! Looked just like my controller back home!

Yikes, the thing is big.

Well it is supposed to be a ''full size replica". So if you decide to take up real guitar someday you should be very comfortable

Got the Beast last night. Yikes, the thing is big. It's going to take some getting used to. My left hand sits out pretty far to the left when playing. It's a little awkward. I think the stock RB guitars are actually a bit better, since they're only a little bit smaller than the WarBeast. The strum bar is a little too noisy for my taste. Also, the button for star power is right where I keep my palm when strumming, so I accidentally activated it once while playing last night.

The jury's still out on this one. It's definitely cool looking. I'll have to see if I can get used to it. If not, it's going back to Best Buy.
