Rock Band, developed by Harmoix, has gone gold. The title comes packed with a guitar, drum kit, and a wired microphone. Individual instruments will not be available for purchase at launch, however Harmonix states that the Rock Band PlayStation 3 guitar can be used with the PS2 edition.

Alex Rigopolous, CEO of Harmonix, states that “Rock Band is a true symbol of Harmonix’s vision, dedication, and passion for music and after two years of development, we are thrilled that Rock Band is finally ready to get in the hands of rock fans everywhere.”

He continued to say that, “We have a small army filling our warehouses with final product. Now, our focus is putting together an amazing selection of downloadable music content for players so players can continue to further customize their Rock Band experience post launch.”

Sadly, EA CEO John Riccitiello said that “We won’t be able to put up enough inventory to meet the demand of this fiscal or calendar year.” That of course doesn't mean that your local store won't have any available.

Rock Band comes with 58 tracks out of the case and new songs are to be released weekly which you can get from the PlayStation Store.
