NOTE:
Please note that this price is subject to (and most likely will) change

Also, please be aware that by placing this pre-order, you are not guarenteed a pack as we are also awaiting information on stock for this title.


Quidco is also available... 4%

XBOX/PS3... £6 = £143.99
PS2... £5.60 = £134.39


I recommend ordering if you want it, as these will be like the Wii, and will be low stock for a few months. Don't forget you can always cancel nearer the time if a better deal turns up or you no longer want the item!

Yep?

Obviously never played Guitar hero ;)

£150 sounds a lot, but technically you are getting FOUR games, that's £37.50 including a peripheral!!

Well that's how I justified spending the money :oops:
#6
This has been costed at over £200.00 for the 360, so if you can get it at this price then it has to be a good deal.
Normally i would go for this and pre-order but due to great flight deal found on here we are going to the US in April so i am going to buy it cheaper whilst i am there.

Good deal tho so voted hot!!

US Version Does not play on UK 360s.

As far as i am aware the US version plays on non-standard 360's which is what i have.

I think i will have to find out tho before i go if it will work before forking out for one over there.

Wow thanks Shopto your really spoiling us :-D

$200 Dollars in the US.
EA Game, region locked so won't work on UK boxes, even extream ones...

I see we are about to, yet again be ripped off in the UK. Notice UK are calling it "Special Edition" to jusify the extra £50, from US prices.

Ahh well, shame..

glad I got the amazon 59.99 pre order in a while ago

Special Edition denotes all instruments included, as opposed to the vanilla disc version, seperate instruments, lights and fog kit etc

One thing to bear in mind - I've read reports that the guitars can sometimes play up (dunno if this applies to all versions), so it might be worth buying it somewhere you'll have no problem getting a replacement from if yours dies?

I think that's all been ironed out now, which is the main reason it's still only out in North America. They were the guinea pigs for once! They're on about the 4th or 5th hardware revision I think

Rock Band [PS3] is $169.99 at BarnesAndNoble.com.

Although it states no shipping outside the US, I have read some posts on another forum where those members had reported they had ordered & received it in the UK.

One member got stung for £37 customs tax.

The US PlayStation Network Store has loads of extra tracks to download, btw.

These can be purchased by way of a IDT Finance Prime card.

Whats the delivery charge on that? Cos if its $169.99 delivered, even if you get hit with the £37 customs tax it still works out cheaper than buying it here!

Depends where you live.

Did you check the "Delivery Times and Shipping Rates" link to the right of the price?

And yes, that is why I offered the URL as this price with delivery & customs charge is cheaper than the originally posted deal.

It's a bit late now, I'm sure they have been asked to stop exporting this title.

Besides, you have no warrenty on the item if an instrument develops a fault, plus after all the time and agro is it really worth skimping on a few quid.

You will also end up with the American tracklist, which isn't to bad but a few soft rock songs I wouldn't mind being taken out for the Euro release!

I got this for the PS3 of fleabay before Xmas £145.00 all in. Works a treat. Soooo much better than guitar hero when theres a few of you...
#21
Awesome - much better than GH III and that rocks!

if by non-standard you mean modded, you are still wrong. You would be able to use the instruments but not the game disc from the US...which may suit you..?

great party play game, not so good 1 player..
#24
I know this is several games in one, with instrument controllers, and that I've paid a lot for the various guitar heroes over the past couple of years, but £150 .. whoa!
#25
Maybe you could make this the official... Cheapest rock band thread?
#26
I really cannot justify the price! i thought GH3 was bad enough!

hehe I agree, I've still pre-ordered though and I'm tight with money!

This is liable to be £120ish most probably, which isn't to bad when you break it down. If it goes down in price (this is just a shopto guesstimate) then you'll only pay the lower amount. This just gets you first in line, on day one basically!

In America you can purchase it seperatly now, so if you have a guitar hero guitar, (if the same goes solus version is sold here) you could just purchase the retail disc for £30-40 and play the Guitar and Bass sections. The PS3 GH3 guitar will not work with Rock Band however, only the 360 version will this be an option.
#28
Amazon have Rock Band for £29.99 pre-order! What's the difference?
#29
Thanks for letting us know that the pre-orders had reopened.
The Gf is really looking forward to getting this

Obviously never played Guitar hero ;)

i have and its awful...i just dont see what all the fuss is about...reminds me of the game 'simon' from the 80's...yawn
but then i guess if we all had the same tastes...life would be boring wouldnt it
#31
Also , ShopTo dont do quidco on preorders, I've been caught out twice before by them

No it doesn't

A modded 360 will still only play games from that region (PAL\NTSC-U\NTSC-J)

Though the actual accessories obviously will work, the game WON'T
#34
Not cheap at £150 but it looks like a great game. Its £80 in the states with the current exchange rate, ps3 version is multiregion so thats what I am going to pick up whilst I am over there in Febuary :)
#35
I'm tempted to just import it and incur the custom charges, now that I know how much it's set to be sold over here.
#36
as long as you have a PS3... it's probably a good idea
#37
If this is the best price all in before release day I will be very surprised

How the hell is this hot? No firm release date, no guarantee they'll actually get it in stock for you, and no discount on RRP?!
