If a whole kit doesn't set someone back like $500-600 it might be a success. The Fender guitar cost on RB3 murdered it for many

I have to say I've been waiting for something like this since the first guitar hero. As long as it has a decent track list I could see this doing well.
Surely it would be expensive to grab a new guitar on top of the game but for the many people who already own a guitar, or at least know someone they can borrow one from, this is great

Yeah, that's what's worrying me about this. How can they really expect it to sell well if it requires a real guitar? Even a cheap one would cost a fair bit.

Nevertheless, I might keep an eye on this and see if it is as 'real' as it says it is. If so, then I might actually get into this. Always wanted to learn an instrument (albeit, the violin/viola, more than anything else).

I've wanted this ever since I played GH. There was some other game that could do something similar, but IIRC, it required a special pickup or something I believe. To be able to play with nothing but a simple adapter and your own guitar would be awesome.

If it is just an adapter, I don't see this as being too expensive, assuming you already have a guitar of course. If you don't, then you could always get like a Squier Mini Strat or something for like $99 (or less if it's used), which is a good learner's guitar anyway. Anyone interested in this game would also have to be interested in learning to play an actual guitar, so to say the price of the guitar would be too expensive for potential buyers is a bit of a moot point.

According to IGN the game comes with an adapter so that anyone that has bought an electric guitar in the past can use that as the controller. It seems that UbiSoft are trying to get into the huge market made up of those that bought a guitar but gave up which is a good move.

Acoustic guitars (with plugging) are cheaper than electric guitars....so I might try this one with acoustic one if it's compatible....

The cheapest acoustic-electric and the cheapest electric are roughly going to be the same. I'd just put it up to personal preference on what you want to play outside the game.
