Play.com reduces Rock Band bundle prices
Play.com has taken the first step to offer a slightly less outrageous price for EA’s Rock Band in the UK.
As we reported yesterday, the recommended retail price (RRP) of the game itself will be GBP 49.99 whilst the bundle of three instruments (microphone, drum kit and guitar) will come in at a staggering GBP 129.99.
However, Play.com has begun offering pre-orders of the game for GBP 39.99, in line with most new releases, and the instrument pack for GBP 99.99. This brings the total to about GPB 140. It's still frighteningly close to the price of an Xbox 360, but it's good to see that the retailer hasn't tried offering the set at the extremely high RRP.
Rock Band is due for release on May 23 on Xbox 360, with PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2 and Wii versions to follow later this summer.
