Rock Band on PS2 hits retail tomorrow

The PlayStation 2 version of Rock Band has shipped and will be up for purchase from your store of choice starting tomorrow. Great news for those of you without a PlayStation 3 or an Xbox 360, right? Sort of.

We've already been warned about the amount of features that will be missing from the PS2 version of the otherwise rocktastic game. From a slimmed down "Band World Tour" mode to a lack of character customization, online modes, and download content, PS2 owners are really getting the shaft with this release.

If you've got no plans to purchase any of the newer consoles or you want to make use of all your extra PlayStation 2 guitar controllers, then I suppose a purchase can be justified. Just don't go into the PS2 port of Rock Band expecting the same experience you'd be getting had you of gotten the game for Xbox 360 or PS3.
