UK Retailers Hate Rock Band Pricing Too

Gamers paying in Great British Pounds couldn't have been too happy to be faced with the proposed Rock Band pricing scheme proposed by EA and Harmonix. With a suggested retail price of £130 for the "Instrument Pack" and £50 for the software, UK gamers were looking at a $350 USD price tag. Fortunately, UK retailers seem to have taken it upon themselves to slash prices, according to a report from MCV.

Play.com is currently listing Rock Band and its dedicated controllers for far less than original asking price, taking about $100 off the total investment. That's venturing into almost reasonable territory, something that will be sure to help Rock Band's chances across the pond. Good going, UK retailers!
