Rock band for Wii is due to be released on ??? I’ve tried to find out and no one can answer this question for me!!!
At the moment only Amazon.co.uk are taking pre orders. And that is only for the game itself.
Pre-orders are being taken for the Xbox 360 version, which is released on 23rd may 2008. The chat on the net though, is that it is amazingly overpriced here in the UK. This is compared to the package that has been available in the USA for a number of months now.
The Xbox 360 UK version total price (recommended retail price(RRP)) would be £180. The USA version total price was $180, which is approx £90. That is £90 more, or double the price!!! Amazon.co.uk has knocked some money off the RRP, so it’ll set you back £140. But, the USA version is $148 on Amazon.com with the discounts that they give. No justice!
Granted, some people will say that the price we’ll pay for the game + accessories are worth it. Especially for such a revolutionary game. But isn’t this just a case of the UK being ripped-off again?
You have to buy the accessories separately, rather than one big package. Whereas in the states, it was all available as one big package.
As soon as the Wii version has been properly finalized for pre order I’ll post the links on here. What price it’ll be, we’ll just have to wait and see!!
Go to Amazon.co.uk to check out the Xbox 360 items by clicking here. At the moment there isn’t a Rock Band for Wii pre-order page. As soon as there is I’ll change this part of the blog!
