I am widely renowned as being a penny pincher of epic proportion. Often times I simply ignore new games until the price tag drops to what I consider a reasonable level, with a few exceptions. One of the exceptions was Bioshock, another will be Rockband.
For a while price points of $200 were being thrown around as what you'd be shelling out for the Rockband bundle. It would appear that we're going to see this for slightly less than expected. Amazon has the full bundle of drum kit, guitar, and microphone along with a copy of the game and usb hub for $170. Those lacking in the great fortune required for owning a 360 (or the disposable income required for owning a PS3) can pick up a bundle for the PS2 for $160, although it bears mentioning that the game and instruments will be sold separately.
I will almost certainly end up being one of the midnight line waiters for this game and if my impressions of it from PAX are accurate than I will end up annoying my neighbors for nights on end with the near incessant tapping of drumstick on drum.
