Interactive Entertainment and MTV Games, a part of Viacom’s MTV Networks), LEGO
Rock Band is available now at retail stores in North America for Xbox 360® video
game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer
entertainment system, Wii™ console, and Nintendo DS™. Offering affordable family
entertainment, LEGO Rock Band for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii is
available for $49.99, and Nintendo DS for $29.99.
Combining two of the most popular videogame brands, LEGO Rock
Band pairs the fun, customization and humor of LEGO videogames with the
multiplayer music experience pioneered by Rock Band. Filled with 45
chart-topping songs and classic favorites, LEGO Rock Band allows family members
of all ages and skill levels to break loose on the bass, drums, guitar and mic
to a soundtrack filled with hit songs from Queen, Foo Fighters, Jackson 5, The
All-American Rejects, Jimi Hendrix, Good Charlotte, Tom Petty and more.
With LEGO, Rock Band brings its highly successful series to
Nintendo DS for the first time. In addition to the classic instrument play found
in the console versions, LEGO Rock Band offers the same level of engagement
without the need for peripherals to play the game and is compatible with
Nintendo DS, Nintendo DS™ Lite and Nintendo DSi™. Also unique to LEGO Rock Band
is the introduction of Rock Power Challenges. Players can harness the power of
rock to pull off killer riffs so intense they can demolish a building, thwart an
angry octopus or send gamers on other crazy missions. And in the LEGO style of
“build-and-play” gaming, players can customize their own experience by creating
their minifigure avatars, band and entourage.
Fans can extend their experience with family-friendly
downloadable content from the massive Rock Band™ Music Store on their Xbox 360
and PlayStation 3 consoles that contains more than 350 songs that can be played
within LEGO Rock Band. Players can also export songs from LEGO Rock Band to
their Xbox 360 beginning November 3, 2009 and PlayStation 3 beginning November
12, 2009 to play across other Rock Band games. LEGO Rock Band is compatible with
most third party instrument controllers and microphones. For a list of
