Rock Band Debut

The highly anticipated music game Rock Band has just been officially released here last week – 10 months after the US launch.

While Rock Band 2 on Xbox360 was launched in the US on September 14, music gamers here can only console themselves with the first version. Many expressed their surprise that Rock Band is launching here when the sequel is already out. So much for touting the small local market as the Digital Media Gateway of Asia.

Besides the parallel importers who have been bringing in the game since end of last year, Rock Band will have to compete with rival music game, Guitar Hero World Tour, which will be launched in the next few months.

Rock Band 2 vs Guitar Hero World Tour, so which game is better?

Here’s a video of Rock Band live demo at the recent Games Convention Asia 2008.

Rockband 2 is much better... I got Rockband a couple days after it came out. It's good, much like the first. Guitar Hero is for little kids.

Have not seen the videos yet, but I am much excited to play the game at first hand. In fact I have played lots of games but not any music game. So I am looking forward to it.

I prefer the songs on GHWT and the controllers are of better quality.

Great post. It will be interesting to see what happens to the Rock Band type games as I think they will need to keep evolving!

I think Rock Band is the better version. It just feels like a more thought out and fun game.

This game is great and does lots for helping young people to learn more about playing instruments.
