Be warned, I do not excel with the words, but I'll do my best. I have favorites, but I try and keep an open, unbiased mind. Just because I love my XBox, doesn't mean I hate my PS3. Also just because I love my shiny new current-gen games, doesn't mean I can't appreciate old games with technically inferior graphics.

Americans need not worry but Canadian gamers might want to look out for this one. Currently the dollar value in Canada is nearly equal to the penny as the American dollar, but the Canadian price point is still in the air for Rock Band. While we’re hoping it will be around the $170 mark, Canadians may need to pony up more– but we couldn’t get a definite answer to support that. However, because of packaging regulations in Canada the release of Rock Band may see some small delays to go north of the border. Canadian standards force all packaging to come in both English and French-Canadian, and this issue- coupled with shipping quantities to Canada- may delay the release in the Great White North. Our advice? Drive south until you see a sign that says GameStop.
Whether or not this is the real reason for the delay, I'm sure Harmonix would love to split up the releases a bit, supplying this demand might be a tough one.
The game is still scheduled for release on November 20th in the United States.
