'Guitar Hero' gets new pedal for the metal

Another sign that the guitar craze is getting out of hand.


There have been many times in recent months that we thought this whole mania over Guitar Hero was getting out of hand--or, in this case, foot.

SlashGear says there's now an accessory that "actually gives you the opportunity to use your foot for star power and your whammy bar." The pedals work only with PlayStation 2 systems but, at the rate things are going, it probably won't be long before they're expanded to meet demand.

For now, they'll go perfectly with Spotswood's drum computers.
