Behold The $170 Game
Posted on Friday, September 28 @ 21:03:40 PST by Duke_FerrisWell the news is out, Rock Band will hit the streets on November 23rd, and will cost a wallet-punching $170.
That's for the 360 and PS3 versions, the PS2 players will save a measly $10 and get to wait until December 10th. Although considering one of the game's biggest selling points is downloadable song packs, you'd have to be pretty foolish to get the PS2 version.
That includes the game, one guitar, the drums and a mic. It appears that the only wireless device in the bundle will be the PS3 guitar, so if you have every system, that's probably the version to buy. There is a 360 wireless guitar, but that's sold separately for $80. On the other hand, you're eventually going to want two guitars anyway so you can rock the bass. That makes it $250. Yikes.
Especially when you realize that you can get a PSP slim, a 1 gig memory stick, the Family Guy Freakin' Sweet pack, and either Daxter or Battlefront for just $200.
But EA needn't worry, because they know we all want it so bad, we're willing to eat ramen for a month to save up for it. And you don't really need to see the dentist every six months, right?
