At E3 2008 in LA we caught up with Dan Teasdale, lead designer on Rock Band 2, to find out how rocking has been improved in the sequel, the use of a $300 peripheral and pricing in the UK.
VideoGamer.com: Could you explain your role on the game and the kind of thing that you do as part of the development team?
Dan Teasdale: I'm the lead designer on Rock Band 2. My job is basically to make the game fun and to make it a real authentic band experience. So my job is designing the game, writing specifications for people, balancing the game and making sure it's finely tuned and as balanced as possible."
