Pretty sure the newer guitar hero stuff (drums and guitars) don't work with Rock Band 1, but it should work with Rock Band 2.

I know my GH5 guitars worked with everything but RB1.


If you're wondering which instruments work with which games, then check out this compatibility chart on the Rock Band website:

Not a bad deal at all. Seems like they never fixed the issues with the drums because people are still complaining about them as of 2 months ago. I guess if you need the guitar, it's worth it.

Does Dead Island GOTY have the content on disc or is it a voucher?


On the PS3 it's in disc.

Until you remember that Sears blew the full band sets out for $20 (and TRU had them for $30) just last year.

Ya but those were near impossible to find, especially the TRU ones. I checked the 3 stores around me and had 0 luck.

Does the NEWCUTOMER10 coupon still work? If not is there one that does? I haven't ordered from Newegg in about a year.



How did you manage to do that? I can't STOP ordering from there. Between their almost daily email deals and their preorder deals almost all my games are coming from there now.

Plus both TRU and Sears had sales tax, so Newegg price is pretty much equal. With free shipping my guess Newegg just blows remaining inventory - it's probably just slightly cheaper then to ship it all to the garbage dump.

Apparently there was some kind of problem with defective drums or pedals or some such thing, I'd assume they would've corrected that problem by now and if not you can always get a refund.
.


These could be the very first sets made....When old merch like is being clearanced like this (activision probably cleared out their warehouses and shipped the remains to Newegg), folks should have no expectation about where it was produced during the production run....It could have been the first or the last one made. Also, given how this set stagnated at retail, I wouldn't expect that it went through numerous production runs with iterative improvements along the way.....I would expect that most sets made were from the first, and possibly only production run.

Also there are no refunds on this item from newegg....you can get a replacement within 30 days but that is it (and shipping it back will probably run at least $15 if not more).

I pretty much only buy games for sub $20 anymore and other than the Best Buy blowout sale this week I really haven't bothered buying much of those in a while. I feel like I've picked up nearly everything that's been on my hit list for a while. Newegg has definitely had some great preorder deals for a while now, but with the backlog as big as it is the only game I have preordered this year was Diablo III's CE which I got for $85 at buy.com (net cost was $50 to me after a $35 credit I had from the Vita). I was super tempted to get the Z.O.E. collection (HUGE fan of the franchise-Z.O.E. 1 might be my favorite PS2 game) when they had the $10 off preorder deal though. $30 is a great deal for it but I think I can hold out for $20 anyway.

Thanks OP, snagged one for PS3, never had plastic instruments on the PS3, and can grab the older games for pennies. Great find!

Regarding the defective drums, one of the sets I purchased from TRU when they were clearing them out had a bad drum set. I simply filled out one of their warranty replacement forms on their website, printed the shipping label they provided me, and sent it off. In about a week or so I had a new set (2nd Gen re-model no less, with detachable control pad) sitting on my door-step.

I was very impressed with their warranty department. Just a heads up for people worried about the drums.

I hope the drums won't be screwed like most are saying it is. I bought this just for the drums...

I just bought my fifth set of drums (Guitar Hero World Tour x2 and now Band Hero x3). Out of those sets two sets of drums (always the red one) have broken within the warranty period and I had zero issues with replacements from Activision. Buy and have fun with 'em and don't worry about the issues I say.

With just guitars being so expensive, this takes any thought at all? No, it doesn't - 5 sets ordered. Thanks, OP.
From the Book of Deluded and/or Ridiculous, Vol. 1, page 1, paragraph 1:

Oh, any ideology has people who speak quite crassly or aren't intellectually deep. Us on the left are proud of the fact that, despite knowing we have them, we don't elect them to office or treat them as vanguards of a movement.


Should we start with Biden, Hank Johnson, Sheila Jackson Lee, and Tony Wiener and work from there? Dumbass.

Whats the consensus on DI? Is $20 a good price to bite or should I wait until Black Friday? I already have a backlog of games to tend to x.X

I know, right? All I needed was a guitar and they're going for $30-35 used on eBay. With the drums, game, etc. it's one hell of a deal.

I had been wanting some drums as I only had the portable set that was on Amazon for $10. This gives me so much more for a little more then it would have cost to find some on craigslist, thanks OP.

My girlfriend hasn't played ny of these before, but she's wanted to. So I bought this for her so she could have the drums.

I already have 2 guitars from a few years ago and just bought LEGO Rock Band for $7 from Best Buy. I think I'll make a trip down to GameStop and get RB 1 and 2. So she'll have plenty to play.

My order was placed within a minute of seeing Band Hero kit and 34.99 in the same sentence. I have to original Rock Band drum sets, and I've been wanting something new and hopefully sturdier.

Yeah, this really is a no-brainer. These aren't exactly easy to find on sale anymore, especially with no shipping or tax.

Thanks OP, definitely in for one.

That much huh? My local used game shop has around 50+ used guitars in just a room dedicated to plastic instruments ppl traded in over the years. Each console's wireless guitars are $7, wired ones are $4. I guess its time to flip some guitars on eBay.

Consoles owned: Atari 800, Atari 2600, Atari 7800, NES, SNES, Game Boy, Game Boy Advance SP, Sega Master System, Sega Genesis (Model 1 & 2), Sega Saturn, Sega Dreamcast, Sega Game Gear, Panasonic 3DO FZ-1, XBOX One, PS4, PS Vita

Thanks OP. Bought one. I bought a Band Hero bundle off amazon from an outlet seller a year ago for $60 and completely regret it after seeing this. It came used with a busted drum stand and broken whammy bar and there was nothing I could do.

This makes for 2 drum sets, 6 guitars, and around 5 mics under my belt. Now I just need to hunt down a keyboard and some DJ Hero turntables.

If your looking for the DJ Hero turntables try going to Ross or Marshalls, if there is any near you that is. I've bought two DJ Hero 2 bundles for around $20 each. I saw some a month ago at my local Ross.
