Rock Band: Band in a Box PS3/Wii/Xbox 360 - £49.99 @ Asda instore

95
Found 1st Mar 2009
In Asda earlier and noticed they had a number of these for PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 reduced from £99.97 to £49.99.

Box includes drums, guitar, microphone. Seems like a really good price as it's currently £99.99 on play etc.

Assume it is in store only and subject to store availability. Birmingham Cape Hill had a number of these this afternoon.

Oh I hope I can find a wii one!

I was in Swindon today. If they had this I would have bought it!!!

None in stock on any console.

Good price though!!!!

have to say loved playing the drums on this game, very addictive.

this thread is going to get hot

Did you buy it?
If so can you please post a scan or photo of your receipt.

Cheers!

I can confirm this price at my Asda in Rawtenstall as well! Only had it for the PS3 and 360 though, remember to add the price of the game as well.

heat added. excellent deal

is it compatible with guitar hero: world tour (wii)?

Agh, was in cape hill this morning looking for street fighter (out of stock suprisingly) and never noticed rock band,...gutted.

If you can get this for this price...... GET IT.............. I paid £150 and this is an unbelievable price

You need to buy a game to use it on as well? e.g. this is instruments only (which is a tad pointless imo)

Could i buy this and then get Guitar Hero: Metallica and use all instruments for it?

Wow, that is a brilliant price.

After coming to the conclusion that the rock band 2 drums are never coming to Europe, I decided to look into the original set. Apparently HMX have said that the drums will be reduced to, believe it or not, £50!

So if I can get my hands on this, I get the drums, a mic and a third guitar(probably to sell on) for an amazing price!

Lets hope the local asda has some in stock. And lets hope my 360 recovers from RROD in time, haha.

Reckon this is worth getting up early to try the Widnes one. Then try Sheffield after getting the train home

On PS3/Xbox 360 probably yes, on Wii probably no.

This will work with Xbox360 And PS3 not the WII though, check the offical compatibilty charts below.

now rock band 2 has come out would have expected this to be cheaper, buy the band in the box and get rock band 2, well worth it, hot deal!

none at irvine, ardrossan, kilmarnock or ayr! damn.

Rock Band 2 is coming out here this month so i'd advise waiting for that as they're better.

Sweet, I check my local Asda in Oldbury tonight and hope I can find one for any of the 3 consoles

There is some degree of contradiction on the internet as to whether the Rock Band Drums will work on Guitar Hero World Tour.

Does anyone here have first hand experience on this matter?

Don't know if it's unbelievable as such, we're just finally starting to catch up with the price it started at in the states - certainly a good price though, for the UK

My brother uses the PS3 Rock Band drums with GHWT without any problems...

Got to disagree on this - yes the Rock Band 2 set will be better but they will also be approx twice the price. This is perfect for people who can't afford to splash out on the new kit. Also on the point of whether this is a hot price - there is no-one who will get anywhere near this price at the moment.

Just picked up a pack at Coventry Asda - they had 5 or 6 360 versions when I rang about 8:30.

I can guarantee they DON'T work on guitar hero. Bought the set at xmas thinking they would but had to take them back, the guitar works but it's a no go for the drums.

HTH

rdm

ps This is on the Wii

how much does gamestation etc pay for this as a trade in?

Oh, my son will be chuffed with this.

Just been to thier glasgow toryglen store but still priced at £99.95, I asked for them to confirm the price which they did.Im not suprised these deals never seem to happen in the glasgow store,Gutted

i have the rock band drums and it they work fine on guitar hero world tour which i have also. the software changes and only the 4 drums are used and foot pedal. the world tour set has 3 pads and 2 symbals making 5 colours and the pedal but when you play with the rock band set it only used the 4 colours and the pedal. sorted.

how does the wii version compare to the xbox 360 one? just wondering which one to get

360 version has better graphics, downloadable songs, and the instruments are compatible with Guitar Hero. No contest really :thumbsup:

Yeah, what he said.

Hatfield and Stevenage have PS£/Wii bundles in stock, both sold out of X360 though

Backing up madturbs, the Xbox RB drums work fine on GHWT. They just throw 4 colours at you instead of 5. This is definitely a buyer.
And for the person asking before about GH Metallica, I would say probability of compatibility is very high.

Wakefield have them in stock for all 3 consoles, Huddersfield is out of stock for all 3 consoles.

xbox360 is still showing as £99.97 at both stores, but the staff are aware of the deal and knocked it down to £49.99 for me. :thumbsup:

Xbox 360 version is in stock at Chandler's Ford - £49.00 exactly.

Thanks for the post, crown point at leeds had all 3 in stock, was stickered up at £97.99 but asked the woman to scan it for me which she was reluctant to do and hey presto it came up at £49.00 not £49.99 lmao, so I got one for my 360 and ps3 to see which I like the best.............
:thumbsup:
Morphias
