For the Frugal: Big Savings on PS Git-tar Games

For a limited time, like the McRib, PS2 gamers can grab up the Rock Band Special Edition Bundle for $99.99. Also, today only for PS3 gamers, Musician's Friend's Stupid Deal of the Day is Guitar Hero III for $49.99 - half off.

Rock Band Special Edition Bundle gets you the whole shooting match, game, drums, mike, git-tar, etc., and ordinarily lists on Amazon for $159.99. They don't say how long this crazy mad special is going on, natch. But it's effective now.

Harmonix flacked it as a great idea for a Father's Day gi - OH, SHIT.

Just a sec, brb.

OK, got that resolved. Anyway, Harmonix touts it as a nice Dad's Day gift but we got the release on Friday, meaning they're counting on some real late shoppers. The release also flacked the upcoming Rock Band Track Pack Volume 1 for PS2 and Wii, a 20-song pack dropping July 15 for $29.99. You'll get songs by Boston, NIN, Stone Temple Pilots, and 30 Seconds to Mars, among others.
