Guitar Rising perfects the "Guitar Hero with real guitars" genre

We've seen more than a few attempts to meld real guitars and Guitar Hero, but most of them involve wonky custom guitars -- or worse, retrofitting your existing guitar with a dorktastic MIDI pickup. Well, it looks like a company called GameTank has answered the bell with a game called Guitar Rising, which allows you to use any guitar to play. The PC game takes audio input basically any way it can get it -- direct audio in, microphone, or 1/4-inch-to-USB adapter -- and allows you to play along with a catalog of tunes at beginner to expert difficulties. GameTank says Guitar Rising will be out late this year -- check a video to whet your appetite after the break.
