Band in a box

I knew the day would come when the console gaming world would combine Guitar Hero and Karaoke Revolution to make the ultimate singing/performing gaming experience. I just read an article on Gamespot that reveals a partnership between Electronic Arts and Harmonix for a PS3/XBox 360 game called Rock Band that will allow users to essentially live out their big rockstar wannabe dreams.

"It's essentially taking the core play premise of Guitar Hero but just expanding it hugely along every axis. We're building it out into a complete band experience, with guitar and bass and drums and singing, including very deep and expansive online game play. Huge recording artists are going to be in the game, including original multitrack master recordings in a lot of cases, which has been amazing." How wicked is this going to be?!

For a moment I thought you were referring to the software that's great to accompany musicians Band-in-a-Box or BIAB found at http://www.band-in-a-box.com/

For someone who is musically inclined, you ought to check out http://www.band-in-a-box.com/

And then I am curious, do you play Guitar Hero?
