We’ve got just the video to break it down for you.









We also feature the beloved Rock Band console gameplay in Rock Band VR’s Classic Mode. In Classic Mode, you’ll be able to play any song on the Rock Band VR setlist using the same 5 lane gameplay you know and love. Here’s how it works:









Did we mention that Rock Band VR comes fully stocked with 60 killer tunes? Songs from some of the greatest artists in rock’n’roll history are yours to perform as you take on the world with your band. With one of the best Rock Band game setlists to date, there’s something for everyone to bob their head to, and tap their feet. There’ll even be new DLC for Rock Band VR, coming next week! Stay tuned for details on availability.









So, are you ready to embark on your newest musical journey? Your bandmates are itching to begin. It’s time to meet them! Derek, the leader of your band, has heard of your musical prowess and can’t wait to introduce you to the rest of the crew. Maddy, the calm and collected bassist of Autoblaster, and Wes, the spontaneous goofball of a drummer, will be right by your side throughout each and every show.

    Can't wait to try this when I get home!
  • Just need to borrow 900 dollars and I'll be all set XD

    (Jamming bass on Pull Me Under in VR could be cool who knows?)
  • Had the old standard of KD with a nice salad. Or as I call it, a Canadian Dollar Menu :p

    i was too busy counting stars to pack a lunch*, so i had to use somebody's microwave at work instead. but it overcooked my soup, so i guess i will wait for dinner now.




    * drank too much champagne with the supernova, and woke up down with the sickness.

    Now you won't get fooled again when you choose freewill

    I hope I get to try this out sometime soon. I haven't read about it being demo'd at local superstores or anything, or is there something about that in the trailer and I'm now going to get zinged for commenting before watching it?

    I played fine the first time, but after exiting the game and rebooting, it insists on using my right touch controller (which does not fit into the adapter) for the guitar, is there any way to switch them? I can't find any options for it, so I can't play because the virtual guitar is stuck while my right touch is on the table. The left controller is on the guitar but it does not move at all.

    Neat! Count me in for a demo, because my conference trip to SF puts me right next door to the M$ store there.

    Others should check out...

    ...for locations near them.

    Technically I could bring in my Strat controller but that'd be overkill.

    I wish you great success on this, sorry its out of my price range though....mostly cause I would need a new computer B)
  • XzalorXzalor Rising Star
    I'm thinking of getting a new computer later this year. VR would probably be in my price range around early next year. Will definitely pick this up when I get the chance. It's just too early for me.
  • please make some improvements to classic mode, no one wants to have a black void around them, it should be the same as the new mode, just with the highway coming towards whatever spot you teleport too
  • BachiGBachiG Inconceivable...

    When does this happen? Inquiring minds (ok, maybe just me) want to know!

    Edit: Nvrmnd! Grumble reminded me it's the Aerosmith songs for this weeks DLC.
