Even more bad news for European rock star wannabes. With this morning's confirmation that the Rock Band Instrument Pack does not include the actual game, meaning the product in its entirety will cost £180, the press release EA put out this morning appears to confirm that all downloadable tracks for the 360 version will cost 160 MS Points.
Prices in the US start from 80 Points, as you can see from the American DLC pricing announcement here.
"Rock Band’s unprecedented offering of over 70 songs to date currently available for purchase and download in the US will be made available in Europe beginning on Tuesday, May 27th. Each track will be available for 160 Microsoft Points on Xbox 360," the press release said today. "Following that date, all new Rock Band DLC will be available simultaneously in the US and Europe on a weekly basis. For a complete list of Rock Band songs available for purchase to date, please go to http://www.rockband.com/dlc."
We're waiting on comment from EA. Better start thinking about a re-mortgage.
