    £180 is too much. At least retailers should offer it cheaper, bundled even. Well, I hope so anyways. The additional "exclusive" tracks are a joke though. A measley extra 4 tracks? F**k off.

    Actually, for £180 you can get an electronic drum kit and an electric guitar + amp.

    Even £140 from Play is really too much. If you convert straight from the US SRP of $170 into GBP and add VAT, it comes out at around £100.

    For EA to charge £180 is a total rip-off, and I'd love to see their reasoning behind such a high price - after all, I'm sure the instruments are made in China, and shipping to Europe can't be that different to shipping to the US? And I'm fairly sure that EU licences for the music won't have bumped the price by £80.

    This might go down in history as one of the least successful game launches in history...

    Oh and the new "European Exclusive" tracks, aren't so exclusive after all, they'll be DLC for the US

    That's freaking ridiculous! Just import it guys, considering you're paying almost as much as I did when it launched in Canada in your own money. (I payed $192.31, AND I ordered it online, so shipping + handling)

    The problem with importing (IIRC) is that you can't access any of the DLC.
    But as someone said somewhere else, it might be an idea to import the instruments, then just buy the game here.
