Rock Band pricing announced

At US$169.99, it is cheaper than many feared.

MTV's multiplayer blog has revealed the price of the much-anticipated "Rock Band" game, and it is cheaper than many expected.

"We've been told by our corporate chiefs that the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions will launch on November 23 at a cost of US$169.99. That package will include the game, one guitar, a mic and a drum kit," states the blog.

The PS2 version of Rock Band, once scheduled for 2008, will actually ship this year. The full PS2 package ships December 10 for US$159.99, according to the blog.

The PS2 and PS3 guitars will be wireless and the 360 one will be wired. A wireless 360 guitar will be available at a later date.

The new Guitar Hero will ship at the end of October, and will cost US$90-US$100, available across Mac, PC, PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii. It is also set for a DS release.

Rock Band and Guitar Hero are developed by MTV-owned Harmonix.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
