Video Game and Guitar Enthusiasts Rock Out with Notorious Heavy Metal Design

Torrance, Calif.-January, 2009- dreamGEAR®, leading provider of high-quality and cutting-edge video game accessories, has collaborated with B.C. Rich, a renowned developer of heavy metal guitars known for pushing the envelope, to produce the groundbreaking WarBeast guitar controller to be used with Guitar Hero, Rock Band and Rock Revolution.

Compatible with the Playstation® 3 system, the WarBeast controller is a life-size replica guitar of the distinctive design made famous by B.C. Rich. The officially licensed guitar brings unprecedented realism to gaming by bridging the gap between professional guitars and gaming equipment with its full size and world famous design. Those who do not know how to play the guitar now can come closer than ever when using the WarBeast with their guitar-wielding game of choice.

“The WarBeast is simply the most stylized, functional and customizable guitar controller on the market that brings an unmatched experience to hardcore gamers. With the ever-rising popularity of Guitar Hero, Rock Band and Rock Revolution, dreamGEAR wanted to produce a guitar controller that looked and felt as lifelike as possible,” says Richard Weston, dreamGEAR COO. “Teaming up with B.C. Rich to create a full-size controller with the WarBeast design allowed us to provide users with something unlike they have ever seen before. The WarBeast throws them right onto the stage as they handle the same guitar that their favorite heavy metal legends rock out with.”

Featuring a removable neck and made of lightweight materials, the WarBeast provides users with effortless portability whether bringing it to friends’ homes or outside competitions. An enhanced strum bar, responsive whammy bar and Star Power button provide a more intense gaming experience for even the best players, and 2.4 GHz wireless technology eliminates unruly cords. Additional faceplates that are sold separately give users the option to individualize the WarBeast for a stage-worthy look.

The WarBeast is the first product to come from what will be a long-term relationship between dreamGEAR and B.C. Rich as they work together to produce additional guitar controllers replicated from B.C. Rich’s other popular models. Available December 2008 ($99.99). For more information, please visit
