DS-'Guitar Hero' mashup becomes a reality

The 'Guitar Grip' adds fret buttons to the handheld.


Ask and ye shall receive. That's apparently the case where practically anything related to Guitar Hero is concerned.

Last summer we posted what we thought was a silly Photoshop concept of a DS Lite with the neck of a guitar controller grafted onto it, but apparently it wasn't so crazy after all. Engadget says something called the "Guitar Grip" has actually been developed for Nintendo's DS, a truncated version of the Guitar Hero neck with four fret buttons instead of the full five.

It still seems like it would be a bit awkward to strum the touch screen that way, but we're certainly no experts. If we were, we'd be bidding on that Rock Band mod kit instead anyway.
