It seems that Rock Band has done moderately well (see: awesome) here in the US, so it's only natural that they're going to want to release the game in other parts of the world. We've known for some time that they were going to have a European release (even if it did take a really long time to get there), but this is the first we've heard about it turning Japanese.
Rock Band has easily become one of my favorite games, which I tend to play a lot. I'll switch out between rocking the guitar, drums and vocals, however, I feel bad that those without full use of their legs can't use the drums. Thankfully someone has created an awesome mod that will allow anyone to play the drums, so long as they have full use of their hands and arms.
We all know that when it comes to video games, our friends in the UK almost always get shafted. Whether it's from a delayed release or a jacked-up price (usually both), it seems that they just can't catch a break. Well they've waited long enough to get their hands on Rock Band, and now a few retailers are throwing them a bone by cutting the price right off the bat.
Remember back when I told you that Motley Crue was releasing their latest single in Rock Band? Well, I've been wondering just how well it has sold, especially in comparison to iTunes sales. To say it sold well would be an understatement.
Back when Rock Band made its debut for the PS3, there was a huge stir about the controllers from the Guitar Hero franchise not playing nice with the game. While Harmonix tried to smooth things over by releasing a patch which would allow GH controllers to work, it never saw the light of day because of a dispute with Activision. With no resolution in sight, Ant Commandos has released their own guitar that will play on all versions of Guitar Hero and Rock Band for both the PS2 and the PS3.
It's only Wednesday, so we normally wouldn't expect to hear about next week's DLC for Rock Band for a few more days. However, it seems that Harmonix is so excited about it that they just can't wait. I can understand, as this marks the second full album download that will be available for the game. If you're a fan of The Cars, then you'll want to download their self-titled debut album next week. Hit the jump for the track listing.
I'm sure that some of you saw the European Rock Band tracks announced a while back and wished that you'd be able to play them here in the US. Well Harmonix hasn't let us down, as they've announced the release of all previously exclusive tracks for US players. Hit the jump for the full list.
