The Xbox 360 version will be available at €69.99 and £49.99 for UK and the standalone hardware will be available at retail beginning in December.
Rock Band 2 will feature the largest music catalogue of any music-based videogame to date including over 100 songs on the soundtrack with a blend of classic and new artists including AC/DC, Guns ‘N Roses, Bob Dylan, Pearl Jam and Motorhead! With the addition of complete and immediate backwards compatibility for songs purchased from Rock Band’s ever-expanding online music store and the ability to export most songs from the original Rock Band disc, the Rock Band music library will feature more than 500 songs by year’s end.
The Rock Band online music store has surpassed 25 million paid downloads since the game’s launch in late November 2007. With more than 400 tracks available to date via disc and download purchase (complete list of tracks at www.rockband.com/music ), the massive Rock Band Music Store allows players to preview and purchase downloadable individual music tracks, packs and albums from the vast selection of offerings available as they build their own custom Rock Band library.
