Wow, i can't believe this.

I've been hearing all about the Americans playing Rock Band and having a blast and lamented the fact that living in little ol NZ i could never play against my xbox live buddies.
But it's been so long, and now Harmonix has gone and made Rock Band 2 surely they would just let NZ dive right into Rock Band 2 given you can play the Rock Band 1 songs anyway... right? right? RIGHT!?



Today i got an email from my local videogame supplier (Gameplanet NZ http://www.gpstore.co.nz -sorry Hamza, you're exactly right) letting me know that Rock Band 1 is finally dated and priced for NZ.

ROCK BAND 1 comes out OCTOBER 10th.




Yeah, that's right, we are only now getting the FIRST Rock Band, and to carry on the theme of ONE there will be ONE shipment only, and the cost of getting into it is the raping of exactly ONE anus.



Here's the run-down.


PlayStation 3



Rock Band (game only) ($119.95) - 87USD
Hardware bundle (Drums, Wireless Guitar, Mic) ($299.95) - 220USD

What? Why is the ps2 hardware bundle the same price as the next gen's? That's a bit rough, but i guess that's where they are going to make the most money.

Oh and guess what? apparently that 220USD hardware bundle DOES NOT COME WITH THE GAME.

I can only dream of having as much money as they're going to make from NZ alone.
