There are going to be a totally of 21 songs in this pack which you can see a list of after the jump. At first, a bunch of these tracks are going to be exclusive to the Rock Band Country Track Pack 2 disc for a limited time, once the time expires they will be making their way to the Rock Band 3 Music Store as downloadable content. Once exported or bough through the Rock Band 3 Music Store players will have the ability to access harmony vocals and Pro Drums, in addition to the traditional five-button guitar. Price will be set at $29.99!
Harmonix’s flagship brand, Rock Band 3, released yesterday. For fans of the music / rhythm game, and its many iterations, this game is the culmination of years of work and thousands (over 2,000 now) of songs. Yes, Rock Band 3 introduces new modes, new instruments, a refined experience, and a partridge in a pear tree. One of the greatest features of Harmonix’s games is how much they seem to go to bat for the consumer by trying to provide ways to make their Rock Band experience that much more enjoyable. One of the ways Harmonix has done this is allowing song imports: Rock Band 1 imported 55 of 58 songs into Rock Band 2 for a $5 fee; Lego Rock Band imported all songs into Rock Band 2 for a $10 fee; any of the track packs, or the AC/DC pack imported into Rock Band for no extra fee. The only drawback was The Beatles Rock Band was not importable into other games, considering the licensing it took to get the Beatles into Rock Band in the first place, I don’t begrudge Harmonix for that at all.
Harmonix have recently stated that due to “the agreement terms for the region,” the PS3 keyboard bundle will not be available in the US, thought he same keyboard will be available seperately on the PS3. The 360 and Wii however will get the $130 bundle.
This essentially means that PS3 buys will be charged $10 more then 360 and Wii consumers for the same product.
There is no info as to what the agreement actually entailed.
In preparation for the Oct. 26th release of Rockband 3, Harmonix has a “50% off” sale exclusively on the PSN. There are single tracks, song packs, and even some full albums for 50% off. The sale ends Oct. 4th, so act fast!!

The episode will re-air on COMEDY CENTRAL March 16 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, incase anyone needs some comic relief or time away from GOW3. The songs will be available in the Rockband Store, or the PS Store on March 18, 2010.
Although I am not a big fan of Lady Gaga, the Eric Cartman version of “Poker Face” is a must buy for me. I cant wait to surprise my Rockband friends by playing it next weekend!
