Product Details:

Developed by Harmonix, creators of the blockbuster Guitar Hero franchise, Rock Band is an all-new platform for gamers to experience music, giving players the chance to rock in the shoes of the biggest guitarists, bassists, drummers and singers of all time - as a solo superstar or as part of a hard rocking band. Rock Band delivers four music games in one - challenging rockers to master lead guitar, bass guitar, drums and vocals. Built on unprecedented deals with top record labels and music publishers, the music featured in Rock Band spans all genres of rock and includes many master recordings from legendary artists.

The leading music publishers - EMI Music Publishing and Warner/Chappell Music - are allowing unrivaled access to their catalogs of incredible songs for use in Rock Band. The record labels - EMI Music, Hollywood Records, Sony BMG Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group's Universal Music Enterprises and Warner Music Group's Rhino Entertainment - have agreed to supply master recordings by their artists for use in the game.

Daniel Sussman, Peripheral Producer - "It was critical to the staff at Harmonix, many of whom are musicians in real rock bands of their own, that the Rock Band instruments have a more authentic and realistic look and feel to them than we'd seen with prior music games.

We really wanted the play experience to be as accurate an emulation of playing music as possible, and to pull this off requires peripherals that are true to the real instruments.

We've partnered with Fender and modeled the guitar controller after the Stratocaster. We're really pleased with how the peripherals are turning out. They're really gorgeous pieces of hardware."

The Fender Guitar

"We designed the Rock Band guitar peripheral to look almost exactly like the iconic Fender Stratocaster. The Rock Band guitar controller also has a toggle switch similar to the one on a real Fender Strat that allows you to manipulate sound through reverb, flange, wah, delay, etc. We also made the Rock Band guitar lefty compatible!

"We put the button colors on the sides of the neck rather than on the top of the buttons. The new solo buttons at the neck of the guitar let you"finger tap" your way through guitar solos (no strumming required!) Choose your own showboating audio FX by using the Strat's five-way FX switch. Unlock new FX as you go, including flanger, wah wah, echo & chorus."

  • Rock out your way! Players can beat on drums, sing along, groove as a bassist and shred riffs as guitarists (using a licensed replica of the legendary Fender® Stratocaster®) - either in single player career mode leading a band, in multiplayer as part of the band, or against each other - in person or online!
  • Unrivaled song library! Major record labels and leading music publishers have signed on to provide unrivaled access to master recordings and legendary rock artists - from punk, metal and alternative to classic and southern rock of the 60s, 70, 80s, 90s and 2000s.
  • Fully customizable! Form your own band, create and customize your own rocker, and then travel on a fast rise to fame around the world in a quest for rock n' roll glory!
  • Rock n' Roll Never Dies! Supports downloadable content for never-ending challenges.
  • Play together in your living room or across the world! Rock Band offers deep online functionality, allowing players to rock together whether they're in Rhode Island or Reykjavik.
  • Rock Band ships with 40 of the most epic rock acts ever (with downloadable songs and albums to come)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rockband Rocks! Well I have had RB for playstation 2 for about a year now and my family just got a playstation 3 so we bought rock band again for the playstation 3, and let me say that it is the best game that I own to this date. The graphic were so good, and the characher creation is really cool. The fender guitar should not be used for the eletic guitar in the game because you will beak the guitar, I would buy a Guitar Hero guitar for this game because the Guitar hero guitar is a little bit better then the rock band one and it won't break. The fender guitar is great for bass. The mic is great, works fine. The drums seem to have played better on the playstation 2 for some reason. Sometimes when I go to hit a note on the drums it would say i missed the note, but other then that everything was fine. So when you come down to it Rockband is a great game, DON'T LISTIN to people that say this game is bad because they are guitar hero fans. In my mind this is the game that everyone wanted guitar hero to do, but guitar hero never delivered. So buy this game it is awesome.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NO, NO, NO!!! Rock Band's singing ain't half bad, but drums and guitar just suck! I play expert on singing and easy on drums just because of the stupid footpad, guitar is a little more complicated. On guitar hero I can play on expert but rock band has such crappy responsiveness I have to play on medium. Also the bottom of the guitar is such a stupid idea. If any thing they should have made it part of the original game. Both sound and video are so off (by two or three-seconds) that getting a one hundred is nearly impossible. Also the frets on the screen are terribly hard to see, sometimes I miss notes just because I can't see any notes. Guitar hero is so precise and pinpoints all of the notes while, well, what does rock band do? It just doesn't respond properly. All in all I'd definitely recommend guitar hero over rock band. Oh, and did I mention the price?...Yeah that's what I thought.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun For Everyone This game makes performing in your own band a little closer to reality. This is the ultimate party game that I would recommend to anyone. You can either be a drummer, a bassist, a singer, or a lead guitarist. But you already knew that. The learning curve on this game is excellent and the controls are quick and responsive. A couple of gripes that I have is that the drums could be wireless but I understand the need to have a cable attached to the system and the song choice could be a little better although with new online songs coming out every week that is slowly being taken care of. The online adaptivity makes this game ever growing and challenging and just getting better. This is my idea of online playing. I love the way the crowd responds to your performance. If you mess up really bad you risk being booed off stage however if you soar and your performance is spot on the crowd goes crazy. The Band World Tour mode is really good and intuitive as you tour to various venues each with their own different scene and the game screen plays out like a music video. You can either team up with your buddies and rock the house or go online to compete against other people. Overall this game is really good and I highly recommend this to anyone who wishes to live out their fantasy of performing in a band.
