PS3 Will Not Get Rock Band 3 Keyboard Bundle In US

PS3 Will Not Get Rock Band 3 Keyboard Bundle In US
 
 

So apparently Harmonix has some really weird deal with Sony because it will no longer sell the Rock Band 3 keyboard/game bundle for the PS3 in the US, but the other systems will still get it.

Rock Band 3 is set to revitalize the Rock Band series, which will soon reach its 2,000th song digitized to a slate of playable instrument tracks. For the first time, players will be able to play along with their favorite songs on a piano/keyboard controller.

But for the millions of people who already own all the Rock Band instruments, there is no need to buy the massive bundle that Rock Band 3 will include drums, a guitar, the game, and the keyboard.

However, none of those millions of people have a keyboard controller, so it certainly makes sense for Harmonix to have a bundle that has just the keyboard with the game. And that's what it is doing. But now, all of the sudden, it's pulling this bundle from the PS3 platform only.

A Harmonix employee who went by the name hmxhenry on the company's official forum said this:

"You may have seen that retailers have taken down the Rock Band 3 keyboard/software bundle pre-orders for PlayStation 3. Unfortunately, this SKU will not be available in the U.S. (including Canada and Mexico) due to the agreement terms for the region.

Please note:

· Moving forward, the keyboard and Rock Band 3 software will continue to be available as stand-alone products for PlayStation 3 in the US.

· This does not affect European customers as the Rock Band 3 keyboard/software PS3 bundles will still be available in Europe.

· The Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii keyboard/software bundles are still available for pre-order."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
