Rock Band Takes the Stage at Apple’s App Store

| Product News

Rock Band fans that can't get enough of their favorite game at home can play on the go now that Rock Band for the iPhone is available at Apple's iTunes-based App Store. The game rolled out on Sunday, and includes support for up to four players over Bluetooth.

Like its console-based cousins, the iPhone and iPod touch version of the game lets players take up drums, guitar, bass or vocals with three levels of difficulty, and includes 25 songs from bands such as the Blink-182, The Pixies, Foo Fighters, and the Steve Miller Band. Users can purchase additional songs through an in-game store.

Rock Band for the iPhone requires iPhone OS 3.0, and uses Bluetooth for multiplayer mode. It is also compatible with the second generation iPod touch.

The game is priced at US$9.99 and is available for download at Apple's App Store.

The American App Store stage ... The game is not available in other countries for some unknown reason (other EA games are there).

Maybe because of music licensing has to be done regionally? That’s the obvious distinguishing feature of this app.

probably true, but they shouldn’t say no to money should they? wink
(many people are talkin about pirating it because of that).

Same thing with many other apps, Adobe’s Photoshop.com app. Even the Google App wasn’t available until recently.
