PS2 Rock Band Shipping Tomorrow


The PlayStation 2 version of Rock Band: Special Edition Bundle will ship to stores on December 18.

The PS2 version of the game, developed in collaboration with Pi Studios, shares the same core features as the PS3 and 360 versions, according to the developers.

Some of the same music and gameplay modes are included, Band World Tour and Score Duel among them.

“Our team was honored to work side by side with Harmonix to
create Rock Band for the PlayStation 2 and extremely proud of the result,” said Robert Erwin, CEO of Pi Studios.

“Together, we were able to deliver the addictive nature and
brilliance of the core Rock Band gameplay while giving PS2 owners the ultimate rock experience just in time for the holidays.”

The bundled version, comprising a wireless Fender Stratocaster guitar controller, an electronic drum kit, real drum sticks, a microphone and software will sell for $160 and the standalone software will go for $50.

Those who upgrade to a PS3 will only need to replace the software, as all the instruments are shared.
