PSP and PS3 versions of Rock Band will not make beautiful music together

Or any sort of music, for that matter. Speaking with 1UP, Harmonix said that the upcoming pint-sized version of Rock Band won’t be able to interact with its bigger, more plastic-intensive brother.

Does this mean we’ll have to buy new songs twice — once on each platform? That sounds a bit like highway robbery, if you ask us.

Guess the lack of money-gobbling peripherals kind of makes up for that, though. And really, we’re grateful to anyone who doesn’t glue their game to a tiny, multi-colored hand torture device. Have to keep things in perspective, after all.
