Rock Band 2 hits UK PS3s in March; Wii in April

EA announces that Rock Band 2 will finally reach UK PS3s and PS2s on March 27, Wii on April 24, with instrument pack costing £89.99.


The crazy, confusing world of UK Rock Band 2 release dates just got a little less crazy and confusing. EA, the game's distributor, has confirmed that the game will finally reach UK PlayStation and Wii consoles, long after the Xbox 360 version launched in November last year. The software will retail for around £49.99 on the PS3, £39.99 on the Wii, and £29.99 on the PS2. There will also be an instrument bundle available, which includes a copy of the game for £119 on PS3 and £109 for the PS2 and Wii version.

The franchise has been a big commercial and critical success for EA, with sales of 10 million units in 2008, 2 million of which were for Rock Band 2. This still lags behind rock rivals RedOctane, whose Guitar Hero World Tour sold 3.4 million copies in 2008.
