Dear Guitar Hero, Pwnage! Sincerely, Rock Band

At some point, we've all dreamed of becoming a rock god, and thanks to Guitar Hero, gamers everywhere have been able to live that dream. But now, the stakes have been raised.

We've known about Rock Band, the game that would allow you to play more than just the guitar, for some time. To be specific, it gives you lead guitar, bass, drums, and vocals, all in one package. But now we have the first game play footage, and let me tell know, it kicks some serious Guitar Hero booty.

Posted by the guys over at Destructoid earlier, this video shows just how much rockin' you and your clan of misfits can really do. The guitars are similar to what we already have with GH, but the vocals and kick ass drum set really make this package a must have.

No official prices have been announced, but early rumors are that the game and all its peripherals will run you about $200 in a single package (items should also be available separately if you don't have three friends yet, but they'll cost you more that way). That's fairly pricey, but when you consider all that you're getting, it's a good deal. Hell, you're willing to pay $130 bucks for a Spartan helmet, so stop complaining you cheap bastard.
