The Rock Band video game has got a price and you may not like it – it’s £129.99 for the instruments and then another £49.99 for the game on top of that. You will pay more for the Rock Band UK release than for a console! These are however RRPs so expect to get your hands on it for around £140 in total.
Well play.com have £20 off the instruments and £10 off the game, so you can get the whole lot for £139.98
But thats still $280, nearly double what the US pays.
OK so we have 17.5% VAT, but it is only 17.5%, not 100% !!!
It will be interesting to see how quickly the price comes down when sales targets are not met and the boxes are sitting in stores gathering dust…
