Check out the sweet pic of Rock Band's drum kit.
The drum controller is played by striking one of 4 foam pads, representing the snare drum, tom-tom, hi-hat, and crash/ride cymbals. The set will also feature a kick pedal for bass drum and will ship with a pair of drumsticks.
Game developer Harmonix says that if players can master the drum peripheral on hard difficulty, they will be able to play the instrument in reality, meaning that, get this, we'll finally be able to get some real world use out of constantly playing videogames!
Along with the awesome drum set show, Rock Band can be played with a microphone (that doubles as a tamborine), and a guitar peripheral.
No price has been announced for the peripherals, but we bet it will be cheaper than equipping a real band. It will be available this fall for the PS3 and 360.
