Rock Band Pricepoint SHOCKER


It’s the good kind of shocker (that doesn’t involve three fingers), to boot! Previously figured at $200 for the whole shebang (game, guitar, mic, and drums) by retailers like Gamestop, Harmonix has just let it be known that the final market price will be a whole $30 less. Fantastic move, chaps. A $170 packaged is going to sell a lot more than $200 did and that’ll keep the game from becoming another Steel Battalion. It’ll even excuse the idea of selling all the instruments separately.

Perhaps even more important for those of you out there yet to dive into next-gen is that the PS2 version will also hit stores before the the holiday season is up and will cost an even more palatable $160.

You can expect the PS3/360 versions to be on shelves by November 23rd, while the date for Playstation 2 owners is a mere couple weeks later, December 10th.

  1. I hardly wanted to shell out the $100 for Guitar Hero, and that’s actually worth it. Will that many people have 3 other friends to play this with (unless the game is online, then forget it)?

  2. Yeah, the game’s online, so I wouldn’t worry too much about it. The only thing you lose there is maybe some of the synergy of having everybody in the same room at once, but the game is still playable.

    The only thing I’m kind of concerned about is the difficulty. This seems like primarily a multi-player game and, understanding that, the single-player might not be as challenging as it will be in GH III. It may seem like overkill, but I personally plan on getting both.

  3. Well, on the other hand, I imagine constantly having everyone drag over their equipment or having all that stuff lying around for a game can be a hassle.

    I don’t think it’s overkill, but GH III would be enough for me.
