Rock Band release date

Just a quick query to when rock band is released in the UK, primarily looking for it on the 360, and I'm wanting the special edition (one with the whole kit).

I've seen some sites say next month others saying April and when browsing shopto they say June

highly unfair the Americans get this so long before we do

having a quick look round most sites say march 2008,but im sure i've read somewhere that its been pushed back to june time.

Most sites make release dates up,like Brother in arms for example most websites say its out in march,but the developers say isnt a release date as they havnt finished the game and websites just guess

EDIT: Heres a 235 page thread on the rock band forum about the uk release date

Might not be such a bad thing in this case, i read somewhere that a lot of the peripherals were prone to breaking and there have been numerous hardware revisions. So hopefully by the time it gets to the UK we will get the latest revisions with less chance of them breaking!

Just to update this
Official release date has been confirmed on the 360

"UK, April 8, 2008 - Electronic Arts has at long last settled on an official European release date for Rock Band. However, don't get too excited unless you're an Xbox 360 owner – the May 23 launch on Microsoft's console will doubtless please 360 owners, but those hoping to jam on PlayStation 3, PS2 and Wii will have to wait until later in the summer. Initially it will only be available in the UK, France and Germany too, with other European territories to follow.

Perhaps more disappointing is the price: unlike the US, which received a Special Edition that includes the game, a Fender Strat guitar, the drum kit and a mic, all for $169 – Europe will only get an Instrument Edition priced £129.99 / 169 Euros, including the three peripherals but not the game – which, bought separately, will set you back £49.99 / 69.99 Euros. So, if you want the proper Rock Band experience, the minimum you're going to have to shell out is around £180 / 240 Euros.

Quite why EA has decided to release the Instrument Pack without the game is anyone's guess, although it's likely retailers will bundle the two together, if not at launch then hopefully shortly after. In addition, wireless guitars will be available separately for the princely sum of £59.99 / 79.99 Euros, with standalone drum kits setting you back £69.99 / 89.99 Euros.

There is some good news though. In addition to the 58 songs featured in the US game, Europe will get eight news tracks from English, French and German bands, all bundled on the disc:

- Beetlebum (Blur)
- Rock 'n' Roll Star (Oasis)
- Hysteria (Muse)
- Manu Chao (Les Wamaps)
- New Wave (Playmo)
- Hier Kommt Alex (Die Toten Hosen)
- Perfekte Welle (Juli)
- Countdown to Insanity (H-Block X)

What's more, the 70-plus downloadable tracks already available in US will be waiting for European rockers come May 27, priced 160 MS points each. Plus, US players can get their mitts on the eight European tracks around the same time. Quick recap then: if you want to the ultimate Rock Band experience, with two guitars and every song at your fingertips, be sure to put aside £330 / 430 Euros. On a positive note, going forward, Europe will have access to new downloadable songs at the same time as the US."

Well I have a plan for this purchase, going to get a free xbox360 elite with my new phone contract due up for renewal and then trade in my other xbox360 at Blockbusters to get it.

Maybe when it comes down in price. With Guitar hero being £60ish (which i have) i was expecting it to come out at about £130 max
