RUMOR - Guitar String Controller Silenced

The Harmonix/Fender/MTV Games peripheral that uses real strings for game input may be on hold or canceled all together.

Our source demanded anonymity but has spoken with someone "directly working on the project," and went on to say "there is a rather large error found in the software that is not allowing for the guitar to work. The guitar might not ship at all, or at least not launch with the software as the software problem is rather large."

Is this rumor cause for concern or just an expected hiccup in the progress towards new hardware? Has anyone else got information that might shed more light on this subject? Anyone had first-hand experience with the peripheral?

Well, seeing is how I played it at E3, I'm not sure how credible this source is. I used both the six-string Fender as well as the 102 button controller; both worked exceptionally well.
