Australia, congratulations! EA and Harmonix just confirmed that Rock Band will FINALLY be available at retailers in the land down under on November 7th for $250 AUD. No, not Rock Band 2, just classic Rock Band.

Previously, it was rumored that Rock Band would never release in Australia due retailers showing support for the Guitar Hero franchise and having limited shelf space for product. But, it just isn't so and our Aussie friends will get to rock out later this Fall, a full year later than everyone else and while North Americans are jamming to the game's sequel. Uhhh ... just be happy!
