Rock Band Dated For Europe

Rock Band is finally making its way to Europe, with an XBox 360 version coming out May 23 complete with bonus tracks that include Blur, Oasis, Muse and Die Toten Hosen.

There's no word on whether this is one of those "Europe includes Australia" kind of deals, or whether Down Under is still in rock-related limbo. If we've been shafted again I think some UK importing action is going to be the go.

Full story via Gamespot.

Alot of people have pretty much become impatient and have imported Rock Band from the USA.

As far as I know (and from keeping an eye on and talking to the guys who run it), no one has any idea on when it will be released in Australia.

The last time Yug asked about it, EA came back with 'no official comment at this time' response and according to him, he pretty much asks every week.


It's a right royal romp though. One of the guys in Sydney imported it for his PS3 and I had a chance to play it. Was heaps of fun.

Unfortunately unmodded XBox 360s won't play US games; they should play UK ones quite successfully though, which is why the Europe release is good even if it doesn't include Australia.

Unmodded 360's yes.... only because there are no region free games for the 360.

PS3, according to my understanding are all region free.
