I’ve been looking forward to the release of Rock Band since I heard about it last year sometime, but now the time has come for it to reach our shores I’m pretty disappointed.

Not by the game itself, but by the cost.

For those who don’t know the game, it involves playing instruments connected to your Wii, Xbox 360 or PS3.  The relevant notes appear onscreen and the object is to play along in time.

Other games have been produced in the past, most of which allowed you to play along with an electric guitar - or some allow you to sing along karaoke style with a microphone.
