Guitar Hero goes Mini with Guitar Hero Caribiner
by Mark R
I guess if you wait around long enough, all technology shrinks. Even things that probably shouldn’t be shrunk get shrank.
Take Guitar Hero, for example. I’ve recently purchased this game for the Wii and it has quickly become my newest addiction. There is something about strumming and hitting those frets while those streaming spots go by that make me feel like a legit rock star.
A company known as Basic Fun has created a portable version of this fun with the Guitar Hero Caribiner, a Guitar Hero that fits in your pocket. It is only 3 x 7.5 inches in measurement, and the chord buttons or “frets” are not located on the neck of this contraption, but the body itself.
Beyond that, the gameplay is the same the regular version as the LCD screen displays the notes the player needs to play. There is even a miniature version of the whammy bar, and some of the more popular songs from Guitar Hero I and II are included.
Still, I’m not certain whether this tiny Guitar Hero really captures the console or PC version of the game. However, it is something that you can do while waiting on a bus or subway.
The Guitar Hero Caribiner is scheduled to be released at major retail outlets in March for a price of about $14.99.
