New Xbox Live Update Adds Wireless Guitar Support

Guitar Hero 3 Les Paul guitar Xbox 360 Wii PS3 PlayStation 3

A new Xbox Live dashboard update was released very early this morning. Before you get excited, all the update does is add support for the wireless guitars we’ll be seeing released later this year – that’s all. Nothing particularly exciting, but then again, that’s what the spring and fall dashboard updates are for. Hopefully the update we receive later this year won’t be quite as disappointing as this past spring’s.

Prepare Your Pocketbook, Full Rock Band Set To Cost $200

Rock!Well lookee here, it seems we were right. If you want the full Rock Band experience, it looks like you WILL be paying almost as much as a new console (well, almost as much as a new Wii at least). Pre-orders for Rock Band have begun to be listed on Amazon.com, and the going rate for the game + microphone, drum set and guitar looks to be $199.99.

Of course, you can always purchase just one or two of the peripherals, and then form a band online. But you don’t want to be that sorry-ass gamer that doesn’t have all the peripherals when your friends come over to jam, now do ya? The solutions, of course, are 4-fold. It looks like it’s either time to 1) start saving, 2) start picking your favorite instrument, 3) start finding some online friends, or 4) start getting rid of some real-world ones.

Rock Band will release for the Xbox 360 and PS3 on 11/20/07.

E3 Microsoft Bringing It Home

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend E3 this year – instead, I’m on vacation in Cape Cod, using awful hotel Wi-Fi to watch streamed press conferences. Not the most glamorous way to take it all in, but exciting announcements, great games and new details are welcome no matter how you hear about them.

Here’s my personal transcription (in very brief form) of all the announcements and showings, along with some reflection on what Microsoft had to show.

Rock Band - Make Room for the Peripherals

Guitar Hero Kid As we had guessed a few times before, MTV, Harmonix and EA are working together to suck the Guitar Hero well dry. The news today is that these three companies will be working together to produce Rock Band, a GH-like game that will include new peripherals that will let you drum, sing, and of course strum your way to rockstar fame. Looks like it’s time to make some more room in your home for gaming peripherals - given that the Guitar Hero guitar is nearly real-guitar sized, we can only imagine how big the Rock Band drum set is going to be… or perhaps they’ll build some nifty motion-sensing drumsticks?

With online play, killer peripherals, and a pretty hot looking list of record labels signing on, this game could be huge… both in the metaphorical AND physical sense. Hopefully the controller(s) won’t make the game as expensive as a new console, though. Rock Band is currently announced for the PS3 and Xbox 360 although developers have hinted that a Wii version is also in the works.

Click the jump for the full press release…
