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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
