Rock Band 3 is an upcoming music video game, and the third main game in the Rock Band series. As with previous games in the series, Rock Band 3 allows players to simulate the playing of rock music and other genres using special instrument controllers mimicking lead and bass guitar, drums, and vocals. Rock Band 3 expands upon previous games by including three-part vocal harmonies, previously used in The Beatles: Rock Band and Green Day: Rock Band, and support for a keyboard instrument; Harmonix will be providing a MIDI-compatible 25-key unit with the game. Rock Band 3 will also feature a new "Pro" mode, which are designed as a learning tool to accurately mimic playing of real instruments: guitar and bass players will have to match specific fingering on frets and strings, drummers will have to strike cymbal pads in addition to snare and toms, and keyboardists will use precise fingering across the whole keyboard. MadCatz and Fender will be manufacturing controllers and add-ons to support the Pro mode.
The game disc will include 83 songs, many designed to emphasize the keyboard instrument. Existing game content, including downloadable content and songs from the Rock Band Network, will carry forward into Rock Band 3, with the full Rock Band library expected to be more than 2000 songs by the end of 2010. Rock Band 3 is designed to take advantage of players' existing libraries by providing user-created set lists and challenges and tools to easily search and select songs from the library.

Rock Band 3 Pro Guitars Developer Trailer!

By: Cinderkin Oct 21, 2010 | 8 Comments

Wanna see the new Rock Band 3 peripherals in action? Check out this great trailer that shows us both of the new guitars used for Pro Mode.

Now I've been a fan of Harmonix since the Frequency days. I loved Guitar Hero 1 and 2, and I was a huge fan of Rock Band 1 and 2. Music games lately have become over saturated, with a new Guitar Hero, Rock Band game every year. I'm sick of em. I had just about given up on playing these games when Harmonix introduced Pro Mode in Rock Band 3.

Pro Mode essentially allows the user to play the Guitar or the Drums as if they were the true real instruments counterparts. How do they do this? Well Harmonix has come up with new peripherals that are very close to the real thing. There are two different types of guitars for pro mode.  One that simulates a real guitar using buttons and strings, and another one that is an actually guitar that works both in game and in real life.

I for one am pretty excited about this. Mostly because I suck at playing guitar and I quit after a month or so of trying to learn. Rock Band 3 Pro Mode may be my ticket to learning how to play in a fun way with friends.

Check out the trailer to see what I mean. Rock Band 3 is out Oct 26th in the US and Oct 29th in the UK.
