Small PS3 Rock Band DLC Sale

12004865334_69d8d3800a_z

It would seem that there’s a music related sale on PSN this week. In addition to films like Detroit Rock City, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never and Spice World three RB3-era DLC packs are on sale, as well as Blitz. The packs are 30% off (and then some if you’re a PS+ member), but this deal only lasts until January 27th, so get on it.

The sale is as follows

  • Aerosmith Greatest Dimension Pack for $6.99 ($4.89 for PS+)
  • Bon Jovi Greatest Hits for $13.99 ($9.79 for PS+)
  • The Doors Greatest Hits for $13.99 ($9.79 for PS+)
  • Rock Band Blitz for $9.99 ($6.99 for PS+)

While the sale appears to only include the packs, not the singles contained within them, they’re practically essential to own. We highly recommend picking them up if you don’t already own them. Also, it appears as though this sale is US only.

Rock Band Community Nights: The Beatles Rock Band Guitar Giveaway

beatles guitar

Is it December already? I suppose that means we should start the December #RBnights. We’re going to be doing something very special for this one, since, you know, it’s our last one of the year.

Here’s what you can win:

  • A Beatles Rock Band guitar for the system of your choice (360, PS3, Wii). It will likely be a Hofner, but there is an off chance, depending on console, that it will be a Gretch or a Rickenbacker. Either way, though, it will be a Beatles guitar.

Five lucky people will win one. The winners will be selected at random. As this is a physical product, you will need to provide us with an address. We will email you if you are selected as a winner to get those details from you. We’ll also ask you in the email what console you wish to receive the product for. Entrants from all over the world are permitted to enter, but understand that it will likely take longer for people outside the United States to receive their item. You are only allowed to win one physical giveaway this month. This means that if you win this you are ineligible to win the Rock Band Prize Pack and vice versa. You are permitted to enter both, however.

If you want to win, comment on this post and tell us why you need a new Rock Band guitar. We’re running this giveaway through the weekend, so you’ll have plenty of time to enter!

Good luck, and a massive thanks to Harmonix for providing the guitars!

UPDATE: The winners have been chosen. Congratulations to Riberto Lina, James ‘Fox’ Headrick, John Coffman, Juan Gutierrez, Araghor1.
