Kotaku and Joystiq agree: Rock!

As expected, Harmonix has apparently come through again with Rock Band. Kotaku reports that journalists and other media members crowded the demo room to don their pretend stage costumes. They even used the lame "11" joke inherent with these new music games. But if they had fun, who can mock them for anything?

Joystiq effective sums up Rock band as, "Guitar Hero! Plus drums and a microphone!" For the most part, they didn't bring any new information that Kotaku hasn't already covered.

My only concern is how well the drumplay will work out. Both blogsites said it's better than expected, but as a person who played on acoustic and electronic kits, I'm going to continue to edge toward pessimism. I did the same with Guitar Hero, so we'll probably see a 180 degree shift in my opinion. LOL

Playing in real bands have been some of the best experiences in my life. If Hamonix can replicate that feeling in the living room, at a much cheaper price than real instruments, then they are guaranteed to have a hit with Rock Band.
