USA Today brings us a detailed look at Rock Band 3. The brand new 25-key keyboard controller is also revealed. The keyboard can be used as a MIDI keyboard, and the note highway will shift so the correct keys are covered.

New guitars are also going to be released along with Rock Band 3 that take advantage of the new Pro mode. One of the guitars will even be a fully functional Fender guitar! Expect improved UI functions too, such as drop-in-and-drop-out multiplayer and being able to change a song's difficulty without having to restart.

Wow, that keyboard controller looks really hard. You all excited?
