Scans of Rock Bands accessories are popping up all over the place. This time it's of the microphone and drum set.
Looks like that is going to be huge sitting in a living room some where, to play rock band you're actually going to have a band set up in the corner of your room.
I must admit, those peripherals are sexy.
I just hate to think of what the whole set will cost, 300? 400? This could end up being a very expensive game.
didnt they already show the price, 200 bucks for everything right?
Yeah, well according to Gamestop, it's $199 for the game, 1 Guitar Controller, 1 Mic, and 1 Drum Controller. If you want another guitar (I know I do) it's $59.99 on PS3 and $79.99 on the 360.
I am happy to see the Drums do not look that big. The Drums I have in my room take up a lot of space. I see no cymbals though. So I wonder what you use instead of using them. I wonder if the foot pedal will act as if you are pressing the cymbals down or if it will be for beating the back of the drums instead. That all being said Rock Band looks like it is coming along great. Plus the 200 dollar price of Rock Band is cheaper then I payed for my set of drums. So I can't wait to try out this game.
I imagine the pads will double as cymbals and toms etc. the pedal will probably always be the kick, but the others will probably change depending on the song/section. I would guess that the far left will be the snare a lot and the next over the hat a lot. Notice that it has 5 triggers just like the guitar so it'll probably work just like GH where one fret-button can mean many different notes: one pad can be several different drums etc. - like if it has Queens of the Stone Age's "Little Sister" one of them is gonna have to be a Jam Block (i think that's what it's called?)
There also could be buttons some where to do the job as well.
I wonder if the drums come with drums sticks? I would like to think so, because I don't play the drums but I sure would use the rock band drums.
If it doesn't i would be extremely annoyed, how else do you play drums? with your hands. That would really take you out of the game. A pair of cheapo drumstick is nothing compared to the 50 or so bucks they'll probably be charging.
this is from the current issue of gameinformer that i have and it says that it is the concept mic and that this drum set is not the final product . but it gives u a good idea of how the final products will look
Yeah for 200 bucks this game better have like 150 playable songs in this bad boy.
