    How can they justify naming "Exciting design" as a feature.

    Oh no. Now you've done it, Datel. A UK company ripping off a Chinese company ripping off a Japanese company. Datel should prepare themselves for a MAJOR trademark lawsuit.

    Ahhhh I get it it's called the "Vii guitar" because of its "V" shape and when you say "V" it sounds kind of like "Wii" but with a "v" sounding so they replaced the W with a V to give it its "Vii" name.

    I'm assuming you don't know about the Vii, do you?

    Looks nice, might buy that when I get GH3 for the Wii. By the way, is it a good game?

    Although the Vii is a ripoff console, and they are surely aware of it, I'm fairly sure it was because of the V design that they named it that.


    Now, I must say that the price makes the guitar, the normal ones are 60~70 depending on where you go, so 30 is fucking amazing, especially for Wii with their gdam prices...

    ...Think about that for a second.

    Anyway, this is Datel we're talking about, I've never bought something from them that didn't start malfunctioning at some point, Action replays getting bricks or not reading, discs easily scratched, etc, etc.
    A cheap Guitar Hero Guitar sounds good, buuuuuut, how long is it going to last? I'm going to bet you it won't.

    Why did this take so long to come out? It's just a classic controller in disguise, you'd have thought that it would be easy to make.

    to all americans looking for the price advantage:
    in Europe, games and accessories cost about as much in Euros as their American counterparts cost in dollars, as European pricing includes taxes, which are higher, and various other increases in price. So for us Europpeans, a €40 guitar is not like a $60 guitar. Imagine if you could get one for $40.
