Harmonix, MTV To Rock Store Shelves On October 26
Well, it's on again. The annual battle between Guitar Hero and Rock Band 3 is set for the fall.
While Neversoft and Activision's Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock is set for September 21, fans of the genre will have to wait more than a month for Harmonix and MTV's Rock Band 3. The latter will launch on October 26 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii and DS and of course, there's your standard assortment of retailer-specific pre-order incentives. If you drop your deposit at Wal-Mart, you'll get a $10 E-gift card; if you put your money down at Amazon.com, you'll receive an exclusive in-game guitar. Lastly, if you'd rather stop by your local GameStop and pre-order the latest Harmonix effort, you'll be treated to three free downloadable songs upon the game's release: "My Own Summer," by The Deftones, "Blue Monday," by New Order, and "Burning Down the House," by Talking Heads. The other cool part about this announcement is that Rock Band 3 will ship simultaneously to all major regions; North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and others (Japan really doesn't count as a "major territory" when talking about this genre).
Also, remember that Rock Band 3 will actually feature the piano as a playable instrument, and we'll also get an all-new Pro Mode, where you should literally be able to play along with your faux-instruments. So, if you're a fan of the genre, which will you be springing for later this year? The new Guitar Hero or Rock Band?
