Rock Band will light up your bedroom...

Jan 14, 2008

We love strumming the guitar and bashing the drums in Rock Band. But sometimes just turning the volume up isn%26rsquo;t enough to give you that complete rock star experience. Luckily EA%26rsquo;s also noticed that there%26rsquo;s something missing and, according to US retail site GameStop, are gearing up to release a Rock Band Stage Kit.

The Stage Kit is an %26ldquo;Interactive Light and Smoke Stage Show%26rdquo; featuring a smoke machine and lighting rig for your bedroom which, if the lights sync up with what you%26rsquo;re playing and don%26rsquo;t look like they belong to a cheap wedding DJ, sounds all kinds of awesome.

The picture of the kit has since been taken down, but the $99 price tag and 23 May release date are still present. Details on a UK release date, or in fact if this is the real deal, have yet to be confirmed and when wecontacted EA UK no-one was available to comment. Despite all this however, we%26rsquo;re off to build a stage. Just in case.

James Jarvis
Executive Producer, GR Video

Hi I'm James or JJ if you like, I'll answer to both. I'm the Executive producer for GR video which means I've had at least a part in all the hot moving pictures you'll find on the site (even if that part was just saying, yes that's a good video). I also produce the Future Games Show and Golden Joystick Awards. Away from the office you'll either find me playing Fortnite, or walking my dog. I'm better at one than the other, I'll let you decide which.
