Rock Band 2: Special Edition
Game Description:With the original Rock Band title providing millions of players with a new way to interact with the music and artists they love, Rock Band 2 builds upon its core band foundation to offer an unparalleled, deeper, dynamic gameplay experience. This version of the Rock Band 2 package includes the full set-up to rock out. Rock Band 2 features newly designed guitar and drum peripherals, with spiffier detail and a more realistic playing experience. These are all fully compatible with the original Rock Band instruments. The Guitar is sturdier, with a more precise strum bar, a built-in sensor allowing quick and seamless calibration, a retooled tilt sensor for improved Overdrive employment, a more realistic neck and body design, and quieter buttons. The Drums have an improved kick pedal with metal plate, velocity-sensitive drum heads, cymbal and hi-hat expansion ports and quieter drum heads.
