THE COST OF ROCK

EDGE - - PLAY -

Some­thing that Rock Band 4 will strug­gle with in shops is the vari­ance of dif­fer­ent pack­ages and prices, which are con­fus­ing even for vet­er­ans of plas­tic in­stru­ment ac­qui­si­tion. The most ex­pen­sive op­tion, the Band-In-A-Box, is £220, though it will leave you one short of a full four-piece, com­ing with drums, a mic and a sin­gle plas­tic Stra­to­caster. A gui­tar bun­dle with the game is £110. If you’re happy to use old in­stru­ments re­trieved from a musty at­tic, and can find them, the game by it­self is £50 – un­less you’re play­ing on Xbox One, in which case you’ll also need a legacy adapter to make your old in­stru­ments play nicely with new tech­nol­ogy. That pack­age costs £70. DLC songs, mean­while, cost 99p each, but you can im­port your old ones.
