EA has snipped the price of all versions of Rock Band to GBP 109.99 / EUR 139.99, ahead of the PS3, PS2 and Wii launch this Friday. Which is all rather sudden.

That, of course, is a saving of GBP 20 on the original Instrument Edition. The Rock Band game still needs to be bought separately for GBP 49.99 on PS3, 39.99 on Wii, or 29.99 on PS2.

However, most retailers have reduced the price of both game and instrument bundle already, so expect some top-notch deals to spring up.

As with the already-released Xbox 360 version, Rock Band will arrive with the same selection of exclusive European songs, including "Rock 'n Roll Star" by Oasis and "Hysteria" by Muse.

Also, PS3 owners will be given access to the full selection of downloadable content from launch.

Here's that list of region-exclusive songs:

English

  • "Beetlebum" by Blur
  • "Rock 'n' Roll Star" by Oasis
  • "Monsoon" by Tokio Hotel
  • "Hysteria" by Muse

German

  • "Hier Kommt Alex" by Die Toten Hosen
  • "Perfekte Welle" by Juli
  • "Countdown to Insanity" by H-Block X

French

  • "Manu Chao" by Les Wampas
  • "New Wave" by Playmo
