While prices and release dates for Rock Band have been floating for a while now, it looks like things may have finally settled down, with the entire kit now available for pre-order at a couple of retailers. If you’re ready to go all out, you can snag a bundle for either the 360 or PS3 that includes the game, guitar, microphone, and drum set for $199, although you’ll still have to wait until November 20th to actually get it. The whole lot is also available individually, with the game running $60, the microphone $30, and the drum set $80. Somewhat curiously, the 360 version of the wireless guitar is listed at $80 on both Amazon and GameStop, while the PS3 version only costs $50, although GameStop still says that the prices are “subject to change.”
Guitar Hero 2 has made itself a staple title in every gamer’s living room. Rock Band is the next step up in the series where you can have your friends over to play bass, guitar and drums while you sing. After your confidence is up, you can go online and battle other bands. Now all I have to do is pursuade one of my roommates to go in with me on this. Trailer to game after the leap.
