Rock Band to perform on PS2, hits Europe in 2008


Harmonix and MTV Games have announced that 2008 will see the release of a PlayStation 2 version of their musical peripheral extravaganza, Rock Band. The non-HD concert will take place alongside the launch of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions in Europe, both of which will feature "extensive localized music content" on-disc and for download in order to make up for missing a now much quieter Christmas.

Publisher EA also revealed ten new master tracks to be featured on Rock Band:
