EA has announced
a drop of £20/€30 from the recommended retail price for the Rock Band Instrument Edition
pack sold in Europe. This means the cost of the instrument bundle and game
, which sold separately for a combined price of £180/€240, will go from the shocking price
of $360 (when converted to American bucks), to the better-than-before price of $300.
EA also stated that the PS3, PS2 and Wii versions of the game will release this September on the continent. Hopefully, EA/MTV/Harmonix will work out better pricing for the sequel
when it's eventually released in Europe ... or at least come up with a better excuse
for the high price.
