I saw this over at fatwallet.com. I don't think there are too many gamers on that site, or this just got buried. Credit goes to miscrms.

The key to this deal is the USB wired Microphone that is included. It is the old rock band microphone, here is the link: http://www.amazon.co...64353104&sr=8-1

In my opinion this Mic is easily worth the $4-$5 price since it is compatible with a Wii, PS3, or 360.

These are not available online, but many Gamestops still have them in stock at the stores.

Links to determine if the item is in stock at a Gamestop near you:

No, you can't. It only works when you talk to yourself.

So funny, unethical (since the employee probably kept it for himself/herself), and most likely against the agreements they have with publishers.

I was able to pick up two of the PS2 version with the Mic from a store in Evanston, IL yesterday. I suppose it might be YMMV, but over at FW no one mentioned running into this. So this was probably dictated on a district/regional level.

I think they might have put me on some kind of watch list though. The employee gave me the you might be a child molester look.

wait, so either mic in either the PS2 or Wii version is compatible w/ every system? I know this may seem like a retarded question b/c its probably the same mic, just trying to cover my bases..

They are. All these wired microphones are just standard USB ones. Only a few aren't cross compatible to my knowledge (Singstar, some MadCatz 360 one, and a few others)

And thanks for alerting me to this TC. I was looking for two more microphones for The Beatles: Rock Band, and was contemplating buying at least one used at GS for $10. Now I'll just pick up 2 for $10, so thanks much sir.

As much as I'd like another mic, I don't think I could bring myself to buy a Naked Brothers Band game. Good deal though.

You can on PS3. I'm using my Guitar Hero mic until I get my headset.

Thank you for this! I was able to find the PS2 version for 3.99, keep the mic, and trade in the game for 0.25 credit towards the total.

The employee there said people come in and do this all the time with various games that come packaged with mics.

I have now paid the following for Rock Band so far:
Game: 9.99
Drum Set: 9.99
Mic: 3.74

Just need to find a cheap, wired guitar and I am set!



where did u find that mic for 4 bucks?

I might get this and the drum set if it available a kmart. Already have a guitar, I'm just not sure if it's compatible (GH2 360)

Of course that compatibility thing is from like 14 months ago. Only like 6 new games on each system since then. :cry:

I did a similar deal myself back when Best Buy had the Naked Bros. Wii game for $9.99 with mic. Went straight to Gamestop, opened it up, and got $5 in credit for the game only. Good way to get mic for GH/RB stuff.

You should have destroyed the game to protect some poor mistaken soul who might buy that game.

I think that's what my local store did. He couldn't find the disc, but he did find the mic, so he just let me have the mic for free.

I just got my copy, the guy at the store immediately started making fun of me but I have a good sense of humor so we went back and forth. At the end he tried to sell me a pre order of god of war 3 and I told him I only play Naked Brothers games, he laughed and said they're very similar. I got a brand new sealed copy for 3.99 so I'm happy.

F.Y.I. to anyone looking for a microphone, for some reason it won't work with Singstar, I picked up the game on the cheap thinking I could use a wired USB microphone with it, but it wouldn't recognize it for that particular game.

Picked one up earlier brand new for 3.99. Thanks OP! Yes, I did receive a look when I asked for it but it was well worth it.

Rock Band Drums = $9.99 (Walmart..saw like 5 at Kmart for 6.99 though lol)
Guitar Hero WT Guitar kit w/game = $35 (Craigslist)
Wired Mic = $3.99 (Gamestop)
Naked Bros Band Game = Trashed
Total = $50 for whole band kit everything brand new :bouncy:

The store clerk knew exactly why I wanted the game when I asked for it. He didn't give me any trouble about getting the microphone though. Thanks, OP!

i got 2 of the PS2 ones today (thanks OP), and the Logitech mic it comes with doesn't have the game it came with written on the side of it like it does when it comes with other games, it just says Logitech on the side of it so no one will know...

Just go for it... it's only $330... you can't even buy a decent hooker with that kind of cash anymore.

Sorry for the dumb question but if I get the Wii version Naked Brothers or the PS2 game will the mic it comes with work for an XBOX 360? I just need the mic for Rock Band setup (like you guys buying on the cheap as well)

TIA

Greg


**EDIT - Nevermind reread the posts and this has been confirmed already, sorry for the trouble. Time to hit Gamestop on the way home.

Mic - $4 (hopefully) - GameStop
RB 1 Drum kit - $7 - K-Mart
GH Aerosmith Kit with Guitar - $39 - Newegg
Lego Rock Band - $15 - Best Buy
Rock Band 2 - $12 - Anandtech
Guitar Hero III - $10 - Amazon Marketplace

All new. Just need one more wireless guitar if I can find one cheap. I have a wired Xplorer I can use for the time being. Nice cheap way to get into this.

Thanks!

Hey, does anybody know the TIV's for the PS2 and Wii versions of this game? I'm asking this here since the GS TIV's look outdated in the GS tread.
