U2 Essentials 02 coming this week? (UPDATE: Nope)

Peter Carrette Archive Collection

Well, this is certainly a surprise! Eagle-eyed fan @Dogmatic2020 pointed out to us that Dell.com of all people has put up a listing for “Rock Band 4 U2 The “Essentials” Pack 02 – Xbox Live Digital Code”. Now, that certainly seems odd given that there’s only one U2 pack in Rock Band right now. Even more curious is the delivery date of 1/05, which just happens to be this Thursday!

Dell lists the pricing of the pack at $13.49, which is identical to the cost of the first one. This leads me to believe that it’s likely we’ll see another 8 pack. With some MASSIVE holes left in the catalogue, even after the first big pack, there’s easily 8 more songs worth having if you ask me!

Of course, it’s also possible that this is just a typo and it’s really a listing for the first pack, or they got confused with another game that’s releasing a U2 pack this week, but it’s still a great fine nonetheless. Only time will tell if this comes to fruition, but I personally wouldn’t be surprised!

UPDATE: Unfortunately it looks like it is in fact just a typo. It was pointed out to us that HMXOwl has just outright said it’s one, and beyond that, @WonderWaage has pointed out that a European site also has a digital download available for U2 Essentials 01, and shares a product code with the Dell.com listing.
