Rock Band set to rock and roll this year

Get ready to rock! Pricing and launch dates have been announced for Guitar Hero’s closest rival, Rock Band. The MTV and EA mashup will be available on the PS3, PS2 and Xbox 360 platforms with varying kits that include guitars, drums and mics. The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions will begin shipping November 23 for $169.99 and will include the aforementioned accessories. The PS2 version, which was initially announced for 2008 will actually make it in time for the holiday rush on December 10 for $159.99. The guitars for the Sony platforms will be wireless while the 360 version will be wired. That’s a bummer.
