I was sooooooooo looking forward to Rock Band but........

for me, unless the price of Rock Band gets a major revision, its always going to be ice cold - double the price of the US release - No ta EA :x

Welcome to rip-off britain. Unfortunately while there are people out there willing to pay the price for the game it will not go down in price. If everyone didnt buy it and wrote to EA saying how much they were being ripped off then maybe EA would think about reducing the price.

:x

Also, as far as I've seen, the 'Band in a Box' package comes with the Wired guitar, not a wireless guitar. Though it is the only way I've seen to get the microphone, cant see it on sale separately oddly... unlike the wireless guitar and drum set (59.99 rrp each).

Yes i know it doesn't come with the game, i was just saying the instruments are instock. My game is still under pre-order.

Also, it has been dispatched. Plus it probably won't get here until thursday.

Hense the 'Usually dispatched within 24 hours'

garbage456;2113680

yours has not been despatched as it doesnt come out til the 23rd may.



Well play have them and usually they tend to send them out when that happens.

Voted cold because:

a) This has been posted before and as recently as yesterday
b) There's nothing new in this deal at all other than it's in stock but it's useless without the game anyway.

isnt it 99.98 on amazon with the game

Nope. Thats just a mistake.

my instruments are now order placed and my game is stil preordered..... weird

Amazing game played it at the 08 show, superb.......

i also was really looking forward to this game, but no way paying the price for it, £100-£120 price it should have been, especially after reading how much money they have made with downloads in USA.

Ludicrously priced rip off. Cold.

My mate has now spent £300 on this buying origionally from USA and now buying extra bits for it and downloads

OP: Have you received instruments yet? My order is currently 'packing'. I'm hoping it'll change to dispatched, if I get the instruments before Friday then at least I can go and buy the game from somewhere instore if it doesn't arrive in time.

The disk is region locked to the US, (Like all EA stuff).

Even a modded box will not play this disk. ???

Think your mate is telling porkies if he says he has been playing, unless he brought a US xbox360 also.

what if he has an NTSC console

Still won't work, you/he maybe getting confused about PAL and NTSC, and the region locking of the console.

UK consoles will play NTSC games, NTSC and PAL are just a video standard that does not really matter anymore as the xbox360 does not use RF for video.

Xboxes are still regioned Europe, US, East.

EA lock the disks down, and even firmware modded drives can not play a copied US disk on a UK unit..

As I said earlier, he would have to be using a inported US 360 to play Rock Band as the UK version has not been released yet.

which is what I meant by if he had an NTSC console.

If he had an NTSC (imported US) console, he could play NTSC games on it

Now 'Rock Band Solus' is 'In Stock' (previously 'preorder'), and the instrument pack has gone back to 'preorder' (previously 'in stock'). Weird.

You can play most NTSC games on a UK xbox 360 if they are not region locked..

He may have a NTSC Jap console which will NOT play the US Rock Band...

Think you are getting PAL/NTSC mixed up with region locking games.

NTSC doesn't just mean Jap (NTSC-J)... when I said NTSC i was referring to the NTSC-U which is the US console, which would accept a NTSC-U region locked disc, say for instance rock band.

Think its you that is missing the point believing that ODB_69's friend has a PAL console. I know 360's are region locked, and that it is the developers choice whether or not to region lock the games.

I also know there is no rock band PAL release as of yet nor is there a PAL leaked to be able to play on a modded 360. So if ODB's friend has imported the game and is playing it. Therefore he must also have an imported console

Or he was talking about the PS3 version...

i actually think this includes the game

It doesn't. Second line down says "Requires Rock Band game - sold separately". Sorry

yeah you are right. it's just i boughtt a usa version for the ps3 recently and it includes the game. the european version doesn't include the game.

Hey guys..just wondering if anyone knew what "order placed" meant? Cause i ordered mine over two months ago and its been at that since since Friday now, and reading tht a lot of you guys have "packing" makes me think i aint gettin it Friday?

Me too :-D

I'm not entirely sure, but mine changed from that to 'packing' on Monday, and I only preordered last week. Hopefully yours will be dispatched soon, it's a bit unfair if it isn't.

My order for the game itself has now changed to 'packing'. I might get it tomorrow if I'm lucky.

Has anyone received theirs yet? I got a dispatch notification on Tuesday, but I still haven't received the instruments. I'm getting a little concerned.

Edit: I phoned them up - apparently they were barcoded and added to the Parcelforce systems within the last few days, but they haven't actually been collected until today. So they should arrive tomorrow, on time. Fingers crossed!

Just recieved mine!!

Hi Guys

Just ordered over the weekend got it for £90.98 or something like that.

Used the 5% code, and £4 quidco (quidco tracked on the full cost of £99).

Anyways, just got the dispatched email..
I see they probably send via parcelforce (based on the above posts).

Do they use 24hr, so expect tomorrow???. Or are they still dispatching on a 2 day???
Any ideas, can the parcelforce tracking numbers be found, and can the items be tracked??

Voted hot and rep added, good deal.

Tempted to order this for just the BITB stuff, and flog the guitar as I have one from GH3 already.
