    Bet this costs an arm and a leg. Is it coming out on the Wii? I know that so far its only on the X360 in the States.

    For me the moment for games like this has gone, GH3 just made me frustrated on Hard.

    Also would they not sell the instruments and game together? Its not like your going to want the instrument pack on its own without the game.

    I can't imagine that being right, if it was £180 nobody would buy it. £130 with the game sounds more realistic but still a lot of money for a game.

    FFS!

    Needs to be £149.99 - at the very most

    Why the huge ****ing delay - it's not like it's had to be converted from Japanese to English?

    Why delay the PS3 launch even further??!! Gah!!

    I'm going to have to just basically give in and buy an import! Stupid flaming idiots. Mind you, by the sound of it, it could end up being cheaper.

    They're not going to shift it at all if its £180. That's the same price as the console! :jawdrop:

    most of my friends who have an PS3 all ready have rockband (USA kit)

    so its alot cheaper to get the USA kit in the long run as if buying songs is going to be 50% cheaper due to £ to $

    Too Expensive, still second hand might be better priced, but ultimately think the bubble has well and truly burst, like dance mats and side scrolling platform games

    guessing the delay is to do with music licensing issues, different distributors in the us to uk for a lot of acts
    e.g. u often see separate US and EU management companies on the back

    My theory is lack of peripheral supplies. For a start, the original rock band hardware was shoddy, so they signed up Mad Catz to make it, so I'm guessing they had to get production ramped up with them in order to meet demand in the US and to make a stockpile of hardware for Europe so they had enough for launch day.

    For £180 it better come with all the DLC that has been released.

    For £180, I'd expect someone to come from EA and play it for me :D

    Usually when a console game costs too much I just think haha serves you right for buying a console.. but 180£? that even makes a console hater like me feel sorry.
