Rock Band to launch as an Xbox 360 time exclusive?

The inaugural E3 Business & Media Summit is just days away now, and such important gaming events usually prompt enough speculative chatter to kick start our efficient Rumour Mill into complete overdrive. The first significant arrival in terms of E3 rumours is the claim that Harmonix's Rock Band will appear exclusively (for a limited time) on the Microsoft Xbox 360 when it is launched later this year.

This has been sparked by the appearance of an invite to the developer's E3-based event this coming Wednesday, upon which a distinctive Xbox 360 logo appears... but not a Sony PlayStation 3 equivalent. Wired's Chris Kohler has previously speculated that Microsoft might have once again used its financial clout to gain exclusive rights to the upcoming virtual musical extravaganza.

ms did say they wanted to make the 360 appeal to casual gamers to, so maybe they stuck i deal, this game will appeal to casual and hardcore gamers, time will tell, roll on e3 for all 3 companys

to add to your theory they also said they wanted to add more peripheral based games to the 360, so if they got Rock Band as a time Exsclusive thats amazing.

However i personally don't believe it

They will make a lot of money off it on both the PS3 and Xbox 360...

yep but they will make even more if it's timed. PS3 fans will buy it no matter what and so will 360 fans. Plus timed exclusive money? companies like green.

It's just an invitation with the logos of the sponsors on it. Sony doesn't sponsor games unless they are first party. We've always known this and Sony has always stood by that. This is no different.

rockband competes with guitar hero. If rock band is timed am jst gonna go buy guitar hero that simple. However i have both consoles so i will probably buy it on 360 however i see no reason why other ps3 owners wouldnt simply go for guitar hero after guitar hero is cheaper plus 200 is a tough sell. rockband needs to establish itself over guitar hero though so taking msofts money might not be wisest at this point
