Rock Band 3 Demo Ready to Play

A demo is available today for the latest rock star simulator, Rock Band 3. The demo is available for the PSN and Xbox Live Gold accounts today, with “Free” (silver) Xbox 360 accounts getting access to it November 12th. Don’t have the keyboard controller yet? Of course not, otherwise you probably already have the game! Well don’t fret, you can use your old Rock Band controllers to play the keyboard track.

Even though the keyboard controller in the game doubles as a fully functional Midi Controller, that doesn’t mean you can just plug in any midi keyboard and use it, though an adapter will be available that will let you do just that. In addition to letting you see how the keyboard parts play out, you can also try out vocal harmonies! The demo contains four songs;

  • Spacehog – “In the Meantime”
  • White Stripes – “Hardest Button to Button”
  • Slipknot – “Before I Forget”
  • Foreigner – “Cold As Ice”

Seriously? Cold as Ice? AWESOME choice to demo the keyboard track. Also I haven’t heard the song in a long time but Slipknot should be great for vocal harmonies, but I might be thinking of a different song.
