$170 pricing for Rock Band confirmed

A while ago Amazon listed the price for Rock Band as $169.99. No one knew if they were right or if it was the same old blind guessing retailers often do. Well, it turns out they got it right this time – a representative from Harmonix (the developer) has confirmed to Gamespot that the $169.99 price tag is indeed accurate, along with the November 23 release date for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game.

The 360 and PS3 bundles will both include the game, a wired drum kit, and a microphone. The two versions will be slightly different on the guitar front though – the 360 version will include a wired Fender Stratocaster guitar controller while the PS3 bundle will have a wireless version of the Stratocaster controller and no USB hub.
