New prices are for old Rock Band kit

EA "working on" Euro RB2 instruments.

Following Friday's announcement of new pricing for Rock Band instruments in Europe, EA has confirmed to Eurogamer that the prices apply to the original Rock Band 1 instruments only.

"We're introducing new, low price points for the original Rock Band hardware to make starting a band more affordable than ever," said the publisher in a statement.

There are plans to release the improved Rock Band 2 instruments in Europe, but they're not confirmed yet, and neither is the price. "We're also working on getting Rock Band 2 hardware to Europe and we hope to have more news soon," to quote the release.

The new, lower pricing for Rock Band instruments will come into effect alongside the March and April release dates for the PS2, PS3 and Wii versions of Rock Band 2.

Standalone drums will cost GBP 49.99, guitars GBP 39.99 and a full "instrument edition" set will set you back GBP 89.99. There will be official bundles of the hardware with Rock Band 2, too - these come in at GBP 119.99 for PS3 and Xbox 360 and GBP 109.99 for PS2 and Wii.
