Rock Band pricing announced

At US$169.99, it is cheaper than many feared.

MTV's multiplayer blog has revealed the price of the much-anticipated "Rock Band" game, and it is cheaper than many expected.

"We've been told by our corporate chiefs that the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions will launch on November 23 at a cost of US$169.99. That package will include the game, one guitar, a mic and a drum kit," states the blog.

The PS2 version of Rock Band, once scheduled for 2008, will actually ship this year. The full PS2 package ships December 10 for US$159.99, according to the blog.

The PS2 and PS3 guitars will be wireless and the 360 one will be wired. A wireless 360 guitar will be available at a later date.

The new Guitar Hero will ship at the end of October, and will cost US$90-US$100, available across Mac, PC, PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii. It is also set for a DS release.

Rock Band and Guitar Hero are developed by MTV-owned Harmonix.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
