Euro Rock Band Holds At Yankee Price


Posted April 11, 2008 - By Frank Meyer

Harmonix has confirmed that the European version of Rock Band won’t be any cheaper than the U.S. version, despite fans begging it to be so.

In fact, the actually quote from Harmonix reps is that the game is "not magically going to get cheaper because you wish it to be so."

Oh snap!

"We're not making a killing on Rock Band in Europe. We are incredibly sensitive to pricing issues,” posted Rock Band forums product development manager Greg LoPiccolo earlier this week. “We are painfully aware that the higher the price we charge, the less copies we'll sell. We are strongly motivated to keep the price as low as possible. That said, we don't propose to lose money on it. The fact of the matter is, the costs of releasing in Europe are far higher than in the US, in some ways uniquely so for Rock Band compared to other game titles, because of the size of the peripherals."

Awwwww...that makes American Rock Band fans sooo sad...
