[Amazon] Rock Band for Xbox 360 - preorder at £69.99 - likely misprice!

23
Found 19th Jul 2007
Amazon have Rock Band up for preorder for £69.99. This is probably a misprice as the game is up for preorder in the US for $200.

The bundle is likely to consist of the following:

The Game itself
A Drum set
A Microphone
Wireless Fender Guitar

Now it doesn't say whether it is the bundle, however it's priced too high to be the game only. Remember, Guitar Hero II on the 360 cost the same amount just including one guitar!

It's definitely a misprice and worth preordering just in case they honour it. My guess is that this won't be cheaper than £100 here when it's released.

To be honest - I wouldn't pay much more than £70 for this anyway and I also doubt it's a mis-price. I suspect that Amazon has pre-ordered a few lorry loads at a great price to generate a market presence.

Having said that I think it's a hot deal because kids will love it.

Drum kit? Where the hell do they expect us to store all this crap Good price btw.

In a true retailers nightmare, there are various iterations of Rock Band … In a true retailers nightmare, there are various iterations of Rock Band but the main bundle (with the game, the microphone, a wireless guitar and the drums) will cost a reasonable $199.99. On the current exchange rate, that works out to be £100 but the US economy is completely frazzled at the moment plus games tend to pick up a few pounds on their trans-Atlantic voyages, so expect the main Rock Star bundle to weigh in at a good few pounds heavier over here.

They cancelled orders on the recent pre-order for Guitar Hero

I'd beware as it doesn't say that any of the accessories are included and a price for all this hasn't been confirmed yet.

Hence voted cold to be cautious....sorry.

i preorder guitar hero 3 for xbox 360 & ps3 for £39.99, they have cancelled 360 one and waiting for them to cancel ps3 soon, so if theres a mis-price they probably will cancel your order or amend it

They haven't cancelled the £39.99 preorders from March on Halo 3: Legendary Edition yet...

or the £39.99 on GTA special edition

This is likely to be the version with just one guitar - the full fat version with all instruments is rumoured to cost $200

I sit on the same fence as you matey. As it doesn't say exactly whats on offer, buyers may very well be stitching themselves right up.

I ordered both GH 1 & 2 [PS2] from amazon when they had misprices and both times it did not include in the description that the guitar was included.

I received both at the misprice and they both came with the guitar. However, this didn't work with the 360 misprice, they just cancelled the order!

They've pulled the preorder from this though now.

Has amazon ever honored a misprice?

expired it then as it's now gone.

It won't come with all of the instruments at that price I don't think.

I suspect they'll be a pack for each instrument, a mega bundle of it all, and then just the game by itself.

For starters the "official" Rock Band branded Mic isn't due out until after the games release I read, however you can use the standard 360 chat mic I think

So they are going to sell this game in different packs, silly really, as to use the full funtionality of the game you will need the guiter and drum kit.

If you just pick up the drums, the computer can play the other parts, or you can play with others over live etc.

This is priced at roughly 140 dollars its not exactly that much cheaper than the rumour so it may well be the full version with amazons purchasing power and all.

Not for me, but a while back when they had a misprice on ipod nanos they did send out £20 vouchers to everyone who had ordered one. It was very welcome at the time :thumbsup:

anyone who ordered this noticed that the link in my amazon takes you to just the game Rock Band: Solus which you can now pre order for 39.99.whats likely to happen now,Think we should cancel now?

Despite emailing Amazon all week i havnt been able to get an answer out of them as to what is been sent - i was currently waiting for them to hear back from their suppliers. However, my order changed to 'preparing for despatch' today, so i phoned them again. They adviced i wait to see what gets sent then i can always send it back for a refund if the wrong item is sent. After i had spoke to them, i checked my account and went through the process to print out a returns label in preparation. At this point the returned item is described as 'Rock Band : Solous' ... so it seems that they are definately planning on sending me the game only for £72.

I phoned them back and asked them to cancel it - rather than wait and see what i recieve and the hassle of sending it back. It'll be interesting if any of you guys do stick with it as to what you do recieve on the doorstep. Personally unless it would be the complete instruments AND game (as i expectedly preordered) then i wouldnt have been interested anyway. To me even the instruments alone is just not worth even the £72, especially in light of the GH4 details and pictures.
