T-Mobile sells all kinds of phones, tablets, accessories, and connected devices. Now they’ve entered into the market of game controllers, too.
The Guitar Hero Live for iOS Bundle is now being sold in stores and online, and yes, it’s available on an installment plan, just like phones and tablets. Pricing for the bundle is set at $0 down, 23 payments of $4.16 per month, and 1 payment of $4.31. That adds up to a final price of $99.99.
The big part of this bundle is the Bluetooth guitar controller, which will let you play Guitar Hero Live like you would on a traditional console. You can even play on your TV, but in order to do so, you’ll need an iOS device with a Lightning port as well as a Lightning Digital AV adapter and HDMI cable, or an Apple TV. If you’d prefer to play on the small screen, you can play the digital touch version of Guitar Hero Live on the iPhone or iPad screen.
Also included with this bundle is a strap and 2 AA batteries for the guitar as well as a download code to unlock all of the content inside the Guitar Hero Live app.
It’s definitely kind of strange to see T-Mobile selling a video game controller online and in stores, but John Legere says that Un-carrier is all about “looking outside the box to offer customers some of the best stuff out there,” and this certainly is outside the phone carrier box. Guitar Hero is a big name in gaming, and while most hardcore players will likely stick to traditional consoles, perhaps some folks buying iPhones or iPads for the holidays will decide to give this version of Guitar Hero Live a try, too? Here’s to hoping that when customers buy this bundle, it’s made clear to them that they’ll also need a Lightning Digital AV adapter or Apple TV if they want to use that new controller.
