According to MTV and EA, the suggested UK retail price of the ‘Band In a Box’ SKU of Rock Band – which includes drums, guitar and microphone – is £129.99.
Throw in the actual game, which has an SRP of £49.99, and UK consumers have to shell out a total of £179.98 to enjoy the title at its fullest.
However, Play.com has knocked a full £30 off the Band In a Box SKU, down to £99.99, and £10 off the software, selling it for £39.99 – a total saving of £40.
However, Rock Band rival Guitar Hero hasn’t been forgotten on the site, either – with a whole sales section dedicated to the franchise.
Elsewhere, HMV and Gamestation have both cut the cost of the full game and instrument pack to around £140.
