Mad Catz Interactive announced that it has begun shipping its Fender Precision Bass guitar for the Xbox 360, the initial offering under its license with Harmonix and MTV Games to produce and distribute game peripherals and other products for the critically acclaimed Rock Band game.
“We are excited to be providing an opportunity for the millions of Rock Band fans to enhance their game-playing experience with our Fender Precision Bass guitar,” commented Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz. “This is the first in a series of Rock Band products we expect to release this fall, each of which we believe will add to the realism and enjoyment of this immensely popular game.”
Incorporating all the features of the standard guitar, including Solo Keys, Whammy, and Overdrive Mode, the Fender Precision Bass comes equipped with features designed to enhance the Rock Band experience. It is compatible with both Rock Band and the upcoming Rock Band 2 games and can be used to play either base or guitar parts of a track.
Rock Band is currently available for the Xbox 360, Wii, PlayStation3 and PlayStation2 consoles in North America and for the Xbox 360 in Europe. Rock Band 2 will make its debut on Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft this September and have an exclusive launch window in North America
