"Australians had to wait a full year for Rock Band after its US debut, and our American cousins are already enjoying the sequel, with improved instruments. It is an annoyance compounded by widespread reports of the fragility of Rock Band's controllers, with many users experiencing broken drum pedals and faulty guitar strum bars.
The good news is that PlayStation and Xbox users can instead choose to use the superior instruments from competitor Guitar Hero: World Tour. And when Rock Band's sequel eventually arrives in Australia, all original and downloadable tracks, as well as instruments, will be compatible with the new game."
