Harmonix and MTV Games today announced that a demo for Rock Band 3 is now available for PlayStation 3 (via the PSN) and the Xbox 360 (via Xbox Live). The Rock Band 3 demo features the opportunity to play four songs in Quickplay, featuring one standard venue and one “music video” venue. In the full game there are 83 songs for you to have a go at with most being included in the game to emphasize the new keyboard instrument but you have to settle for only 4 songs in the demo.
Fans can try out three-part harmonies and, for those who don’t yet have the Rock Band 3 keyboard or Rock Band 3 Fender Mustang PRO-Guitar Controller, keyboard parts are playable on legacy guitar controllers. The demo includes the following songs from the master Rock Band 3 soundtrack:
- Spacehog – “In the Meantime”
- White Stripes – “Hardest Button to Button”
- Slipknot – “Before I Forget”
- Foreigner – “Cold As Ice”
