Nexilux Guitar Controller: for Music Minimalists

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  August 1, 2010


If you’re into the Rock Band or Guitar Hero games but don’t want to lug around a full-size guitar when you’re popping over to a friend’s house to play, you might want to check out this compact guitar.

The NEXiLUX wireless guitar controller breaks down into a couple of pieces and fits neatly inside a carrying bag that you can easily fit into your backpack. It’s compatible with the PS3 or PS2 out of the box, but you can also slide your Wii-mote inside of it and use it with your Wii too. The makers of the NEXiLUX guitar claim it also has more responsive fret buttons than the cheap controllers that ship with the games, and there’s also a set of five touch-sensitive fret buttons if you prefer touch vs. buttons.

There’s a full review of the NEXiLUX over on DCEmu, who also put together this brief video clip of the guitar:

The NEXiLUX guitar is supposed to retail for $49.99 (USD), but we’re not sure exactly where you can one at the moment – Amazon has them listed as “currently unavailable”.
