I know that the whole bundle will be expensive, but I'll buy it! :) Very worth it.

wow I play real guitar as it is. Maybe with pro guitar I can get TAB right there from the game, and right after I finish it on the game, I can go play the song on real guitar OMG!!!

I was about to bash the keyboard for not having enough keys, but 25 is actually perfect. Wow, definitely amazed. Its enough keys so that I wouldn't feel squished and not so many keys that people would get confused. Instant buy.

albertCmoon, most songs in RB don't suck! What about Painkiller by Judas Priest, Eye of the Tiger by Survivor, and Peace Sells by Megadeath. Oh and Let There Be Rock by ACDC

@JonathanGudeman "And if your not 40 years old you only like the beatles because they made a rock band out of it." What.

Pro mode = the win. Now maybe we'll stop hearing "play a real instument" in smart-a$$ fashion whenever we express that we like rhythm games.

For those saying the the RB songs suck. Remember that they're catering to as large an audience as possible. Not to mention being at the whim of record labels for licensing of their songs. You'd be surprised at how many "bad" songs are actually fun to play in RB on all or at least half the instruments. Guitar Hero is normally wanting just the best songs to play a guitar on. So depending on the generation they generally have "better" songs that only play well for the guitar.
