I think its been out for a while. I always thought it was a seperate game, very similar to GH only in Rock Band you can play the guitar, bass, vocal and drum parts (e.g. I think you can hook up singstar to it somehow or other) but I’m not sure…

Ok. sounds average at best

Well yeah, although it is much more versatile in terms of player interaction, you can have up to 4 people playing aat once, as opposed to two on Guitar Hero. Dunno if you have already, and I hate to do this, but you should read this and this. Many similarities between the two – such as who manufactured the peripherals and designed the game – but also some differences.

rock band is sort of like a guitar hero game only you can play more than just guitar (drums, bass, singing.) you can also start a multi-player band.

Did you check my two awesome Wikipedia links..? Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, Wii I think. It’s all in there.

Sorry, but “average at best” is far from an accurate description.

Rock Band is quite possibly the most fun multi-player gaming experience I’ve ever had. If you like music and have friends who are even remotely fun to hang out with, the game is definitely worth your time.
