Rock Band 2 to get new instrument

OXM UK: Harmonix has announced that it wasn't being entirely honest with its Rock Band 2 previews, and that there's a new accessory in the works for its new game. (PS3, Rock Band 2, Wii, Xbox 360)

Since there's going to be a keyboard/synthesizer I want huge packs of NIN's, Blondie, Flock of Seagulls, Talk Talk, Foreigner, Kate Bush, Tears for Fears, and many more Wave bands. I would also like Home Sweet Home by Motley Crue.

What do you mean "Since there's going to be a keyboard/synthesizer"?

That's not confirmed anywhere. The article says its a port for an accessory (not another peripheral).

Why would they make a guitarist buy a drum kit just so they can play keyboard?

More likely it will just be a second kick pedal OR a hi hat pedal that will change yellow notes to blue when the pedal is lifted.

What do I mean? I mean what I said. It's going to be a Keyboard/synthesizer. Never doubt The James.

you have no clue what keyboard music is.

if they do add a keyboard i wish they add alot of E.L.P, Yes, UK, and many more prog bands.

i really wish they add in tarkus. that would be epic to play on rockband.

tho i can see rockband pulling a prog style game witch would make more money than any game in the world.

every elp fan wants to be keith and every yes fan wants to be rick

*reported as tasteless*

Who's the dude in your avatar? Looks like the guitarist from Radiohead.

On topic: Isn't it obvious what Rock Band 2 needs? More cowbell!

flame thrower or maybe a lazer beem

I highly doubt that there will be a keyboard in RB!

At best you will see a double kick pedal or a high hat pedal.

Cowbell or Triangle for sure. I hope to see spoons next.

It's banjo time!
How about a double bass, pluck the strings and open up the world of Jazz and Drum & Bass.
