PDP's Riffmaster Wireless Guitar Controller for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S (plus PC) sold out instantly when it went up for preorder earlier this year. Subsequent restocks also vanished in no time, but now's your chance to pick up the newly released peripheral for Fortnite Festival. GameStop has the Xbox Series X|S Riffmaster controller in stock for $130 with free one- to three-day shipping. This model also works wirelessly with PC and Xbox One. The PlayStation version of the controller was also in stock, but it has since sold out.

One of Fortnite's most notable new game modes of the year, Fortnite Festival is essentially Rock Band inside of Fortnite--it was even developed by Harmonix.

PDP Riffmaster Wireless Guitar Controller


To be clear, this is technically a Rock Band 4 controller, but Epic Games added support for a variety of controllers in April, including Rock Band 4 guitars. The PDP Riffmaster offers a low-latency wireless connection with a 30-foot range, up to 36-hours of battery life, and comes with a built-in 3.5mm audio jack.

It also sports a sleek black design and is collapsible for easy storage. In other words, it's a modern reimagining of the plastic guitars of yesteryear. One cool design choice is an analog stick located on the back of the neck, opposite the first fret (button).

If you happen to have an old Rock Band 4 guitar sitting around your home that's still in good condition, it should work with Fortnite Festival. But if you managed to lose your collection of the years (or it's falling apart after one too many concerts), consider scooping up this sleek new one for your new rockstar career in Fortnite Festival.
