The winning triumvirate of inspired music game designers at Harmonix, the showbiz industry moguls at MTV, and the gaming industry behemoth that is Electronic Arts bring us the ultimate music creation/rock god-aping title: the simply and ingeniously entitled Rock Band. Not just a guitar or a microphone, but a whole band, see?

Rock Band is a game in which up to four players - be they in the same room or online together in cyberspace - can jam on drums, lead guitar, bass guitar and vocals. In short, it's the full band experience* (* that's as in rock band, not some harpsichord or viola-powered recital).

The game comes with a whopping great song list, predominantly made up of original master recordings, and doesn't stop there. There's also a constantly evolving library of songs available to download for the PS3 version.
