Nyko looks to replace that chintzy RB/GH drum pedal with the Metal Pedal

My thoughts on Rock Band/Guitar Hero accessories haven’t changed and I doubt they ever will, but Nyko’s Metal Pedal looks bitchin. Or course, my affinity for anything with skulls may be clouding my judgement, but a ‘heavy-duty’ replacement pedal that works for all Rock Band and Guitar Hero titles across all platforms might actually be worth $20. Besides the skull graphics, the Metal Pedal is actually constructed with metal plates and appears to be more durable than the drum pedals that ship with RB/GH.

It won’t be available until after CES, but we’ll get a first look at them in Las Vegas and let you know if it’s worth it.
