Rock Band priced, dated for Australia

Better late than never – looks like it’s a notion EA subscribes to, as the Australian release of Rock Band has been confirmed, dated and priced.

Australian’s can rock out from November 7 and at actually reasonable price of $250 for the game and instrument pack (pricing of the other bundles after the jump) – but don’t blow your budget there, and with the promise of over 200 songs available for download for xbox and PS3 users it looks like most of the existing Rock Band DLC will be coming our way at launch.

But of course this is all optional – my wallet is already stretched over the coming months,  and it’s tempting to hold out for Rock Band 2.. we can hope it takes less than a full year for that to make its way from the USA to Australia.

No way you’re going to pay $250 for a game and accessories? The following payment plans will be available: 

Game and drum bundle – $180
Game and guitar bundle – $140 
Additional guitar – $90
Game without instruments on PS3 / xbox 360 – $100
Game without instruments on  PS2 – $70
Game without instruments on  Wii –  $90

Playing on Playstation 3

Red Dead Revolver - I paid about $1000 for my launch model PS3, so I guess it's time I get some use out of that emotion chip crammed inside. I remember Red Dead Revolver looking rather good when it was released, and despite the low resolution and odd blurring (that I attribute to playing on a HD set) the game holds up well. It looks good despite these graphical limitations because the art direction is so precise and awesome. And it isn't just the art direction, the music, dialogue and set design (for some reason, set seems a more fitting word than level) all work in tandem to recreate an iconic Wild West atmosphere. Red Dead Revolver doesn’t aim to recreate life in the Wild West, it allows our imagination to take over and populates the locale with legendary men and their legendary stories.

Playing on iPhone

edge - Well I never thought I'd consider playing a game on iPhone as actually gaming, but edge has turned me around. The game is built for the iPhone. Sure, it could be ported, but the elegance of what has been created is astounding, it boggles the mind and makes me wonder what amazing gems we'd receive if current gen consoles weren't clones of eachother.

Playing on PC

Sins of a Solar Empire, Demigod, Generals - Zero Hour - It may be a temporary effect as I slowly reintroduce the PC into my gaming diet, but it seems every title I’m excited to play on the platform is either a strategy game, or a cheap indie game. PC gaming isn’t dead, it’s just restricted to titles that require complex input or a pointing device, and games that couldn't be developed or distributed on other platforms. I guess that’s part of the reason the AppStore is so far a success, there were a lot of indie devs stuck on PC for lack of a better alternative.
