Ion has put up the web site for their new premium electric drum set for Rock Band.
This looks like a virtual drummer’s dream: very high end materials and everything is fully adjustable. Wow. The standard Rock Band drum kit is still very nice and much more affordable, but if you take drums seriously, and don’t mind the price ($300), this is perfect.
With the first Rock Band, Drums really took over as the most polished and realistic of the three instrument types. Now, they are really taking the drum experience up a notch.
Other instruments are harder to adapt to the Amplitude/Guitar Hero style formula, but I hope we see some high quality efforts like this.
How’s that for a cool new video of the game?
The latest update for Burnout Paradise is available to download now. Version 1.30, otherwise known as Cagney, is a whopping 385MB.
The best thing about this update is custom soundtrack support! It’s going to give Burnout Paradise a new lease of life in my PS3.
I’ve barely played it the past couple of months but I’m going to be spending a lot more time in Paradise now, thanks to custom soundtracks! 8)
