If you were one of the hopefuls who put down money on a Rock Band 3 bundle reservation, Harmonix has some bad news for you. In a statement made on their blog, due to due agreement terms in the U.S., the Rock Band 3 bundle, which includes the game and keyboard, will no longer be available for purchase on the PlayStation 3.
“You may have seen that retailers have taken down the Rock Band 3 keyboard/software bundle pre-orders for PlayStation 3. Unfortunately, this SKU will not be available in the U.S. due to the agreement terms for the region. However, Mad Catz and MTV Games are working with those retailers that accepted pre-orders to enable them, if they choose, to honor those pre-orders placed prior to this change as soft bundles (separate discs and keyboards), at pre-order pricing. These retailers will have more details shortly.”
Others who reserved bundles for the Xbox 360 or the Wii will having nothing to worry about. Rock Band 3 is due out on October 26, 2010.
