In my area, there is a Mexican restaurant on every corner and almost all of them have karaoke. You can’t go inside to eat on a weekend without someone singing very loudly and off tune to one song or another. I would never sing in front of a bunch of people, but I would play some Rock Band.
Microsoft revealed a brand new wireless microphone today meant for use with the Xbox 360. Designed to be used with music games like Rock Band, Guitar Hero and Lips, this mic sports specific features that make gameplay just a tad easier.
You won't need any wires or adapters, since this mic takes full advantage of the wireless console and it even has motion sensors built in for add functionality. Additionally, there's lights on the base.
Available in black, this Xbox 360 wireless microphone will be available for purchase sometime in the fall. At that time, you can expect a price tag around $50.
Harmonix announced today that they will be releasing a new song update for their famous Rock Band game. The new addition is called the Rock Band Country Track Pack and it features 21 brand new songs to rock out to.
The new "Track Pack" will be available for all the major systems including PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the Wii. It features the hits from numerous country artists including Shania Twain and more.
Rock Band Unplugged for the PSP has leaked, three weeks ahead of the game's official release. Already to be found on popular torrent sites, the Harmonix title has already been downloaded almost fourteen thousand time according to just one metric. However, some users are reporting serious issues when playing the illegally-obtained game.
There are quite a few Rock Band guitar controllers on the market, ranging from the cheap to the surprisingly expensive, but one thing they generally have in common is the plastic strum bar. It doesn't have to be that way, though; one enterprising gamer has swapped out the plastic for a beam of infrared light which is recognized as a strum whenever you break it.
