I am contractually obligated to mention progressive rock trio Rush whenever there is any connection between it and video games. Seriously, my job is on the line here, people. So please know this: Next week, Rush's 20-minute opus 2112 will be available for download via the Rock Band Music Store.
2112 will be broken up into three parts:
- “2112: Overture, The Temple of Syrinx”
- “2112: Discovery, Presentation”
- “2112: Oracle: The Dream, Soliloquy, Grand Finale”
Beginning on December 30, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 players will have the option to purchase the single Rush “2112” pack, which features all three of the above tracks, as well as one, 20-minute marathon medley of all seven parts of the suite, exclusively available in this special pack. As a bonus, players who purchase the pack will receive Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrades for all three packages, as well as a Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrade for the medley for free.
$5.49 USD, £2.49 UK, €3.99 EU (440 Microsoft Points, 550 Wii Points) for the “Rush ‘2112’” pack
$1.99 USD, £.99 UK, €1.49 EU (160 Microsoft Points, 200 Wii Points) per song
