And there’s a price cut in there too!

waiting for official word on ps3 peripheral compatibility improvements that were reported a few weeks ago
I'm waiting for Rock Band 2, and they're still announcing Rock Band 1 release dates :surprised:
To be honest i've given up with Rock Band. I'm sure its a great game, I just resent being made to wait months and months for it. I've just lost interest.
I'll just get Guitar Hero - World Tour instead.
You'll not be doing yourself any favours if you do… I've played them both, RB and GHWT and GHWT left me feeling thoroughly underwhelmed.

That said, if I didn't have either, I'd look at importing RB2 on the PS3, then buying the UK RB for the songs… and of course the DLC works for both anyways.
Guitar Hero World Tour is out in a few months, plus RB2 is coming out, this is too late.
