Even though there is still a few months before Harmonix’s third installment of their insanely popular Rock Band series, only this time with the inclusion of the Keytar, Pro-mode and Pro guitar (with over 160 buttons) and an incredible seven possible players… people have a reason to get excited. So to prepare early, retailers have already started getting their pre-order packages ready for shipment.
Before getting into specifics, it’s best to remember that these figures are to currently pre-order the game alone. No deals or figures have arrived yet for bundles, nor will they until the end of August. With that being said, the running price for the game on all three systems currently is $59.99, giving you a total of 83 songs, and will let you port over your downloaded tracks and all other tracks from the other games. As for the pre-orders…
