I would be playing RB2 by now if the new instruments had come out. I never purchased RB1, so I decide to wait, but I still wonder why they are delaying the RB2 instruments?

they are out. just not all retailers will stock them until the full release of the game or they just don't have them.

and as far as the bundle goes. thats a month away.

I disagree about the microphone. The new one has the controller buttons on it, making playing tambourine and navigating the menus much easier.

You're mistaken; the microphone is exactly the same as the original mic.

there's an AFTERMARKET mic that is rock band branded that has an entire 360 controller built in. that DOES NOT come with the game. it's separate and costs $59.99

and is not worth it at all.

I was at Best Buy yesterday; right inside the front door was a big display for RB2, showcasing the new guitar, new drums, and the Mad Catz official bass guitar.

OK but there is a giant poster in the Gamestop window showing the new bass guitar and microphone (with all the buttons). Maybe it's coming in the bundle set next month.

It looks a bit like this:

I'm sure the poster was not an ad for Mad Catz but was for the actual Rock Band instruments.


EDIT: I just went to the Mad Catz website and this stuff is from them NOT standard Rock Band 2 equipment. The poster looked so convincing that I never saw it was aftermarket stuff.

My gamestop just didn't get their shipment of them on sunday when they had the game.
