UK retailers slash Rock Band prices
When EA announced the confirmation for the price of not only the game but for the entire Rock Band bundle, the UK rose up in protest. Scheduled to retail for almost double in comparison to the North American bundle, UK PlayStation owners were outraged with the pricing. It seems as though retailers have taken note of this issue and have decided to cut the suggested retail price by £40.
Play.com is leading the pack of discounted retailers alongside HMV and GameStation. Play is featuring the complete instrument bundle for the price of £99.99 while HMV is sitting at £159.99 and GameStation with £149.99. Obviously, this is in regards to the XBOX 360 version of the game, but with the PlayStation 3 installment launching a bit down the stretch, we'd imagine that same pricing policy would be taken into consideration.
We'll keep you posted if the same route is taken for the PS3 version as well.
