PopStar Guitar for the Wii manages to look worse than Rock Revolution

Fact: games where you play a guitar or other plastic non-instruments sell. So enters another contender in to the mix, PopStar Guitar for the Wii.

Developed by XS Games and published by Midway in Europe, the title will have a strong focus on “pop” artists, with 60 songs from bands like 3 Doors Down, Simple Plan, and Blink 182. PopStar Guitar will ship with something called the “AirG,” some sort of peripheral that turns the Wii Remote into an air guitar.

At this point, you’re probably poking through the gallery, looking at the screens, and thinking this is some kind of a joke. It’s not — PopStar Guitar will be available for European Wii owners to purchase with actual money this November.
