Rockband 2

So the news doing the rounds this afternoon is that Rockband 2 has officially been announced.

So no suprises there really, but it does raise a valid question for us down here in the Southern hemisphere. When are we going to get our turn to Rock out to Rockband?

I have said before that I am not a fan of Guitar Hero’s new move to be an entire band in a box but if they manage to get their version out here before we see Rockband I am going to have to suck it up and admit that it’s the better version.

Only if it’s down to us actually getting to play it…

Oh yeah, what is going to be different in Rockband 2?

Well it looks like they are going to pull a Guitar Hero here and just improve the song list, fix some bugs and add a few minor features.

Hey it’s not like you can really improve much or add much to a music simulator after all.

I for one welcome our future robotic overlords

    It’s a timed 360 EXCLUSIVE! 😛

    Sorry, I had to 😉

    Don’t stress, it looks like it’s only by a month or two.

    Rock Band is freakin’ awesome! Definitely worth the pains i went through to get it. I like the trend of this party game. The only thing is that I can’t always host a Rock Band night so I’ve had to drag the whole kit to a mates place.

    I have two requests to all developers of future band game developers (GH:OT, RB2 and Rock Revolution)

    1) PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE ensure the peripherals are compatible. No-one is going to have 3 drum kits, but if we already got the kit, we’ll happily buy the competing games.

    2) Design the peripherals such that it maybe comes in a easy to pack case, so you can disassemble, pack and go.
