The Morning Papers | Rock Band Returns?

Good morning!

The big news today is that The Order: 1886 might be worth picking up on the cheap this summer. The PS4's first AAA title of the year is a bit of a damb squib, but frankly everyone with half a brain called it months in advance. Nice graphics though.

However, in better news, Bloomberg reports that a Rock Band sequel might be headed to PS4 and Xbox One. The renewed DLC suggests that something is stirring, and we reckon that it's high time we put the band back together and rocked out once more. I love it. I need it. I bleed it. Yeah, it's a wild hurricane, alright, hold tight I'mmmm aaaa hiiiiighwaaaay staaaaaaa[you're fired - Ed]

Part of me doesn't want Rock Band & Guitar Hero to return. The part of me that tries (in vain) to be sensible with money, and not to clutter the house up with loads of gaming peripherals that take up loads of space and rarely get used.

The rest of me wants this so much. And that part of me usually gets its way. "Wants" is probably the wrong word, actually. That part of me NEEDS the music rhythm genre to return.

(I'll ignore the likes of Kinect Fantasia and Dance Central.)

Most importantly of all, will it support the old peripherals?! I ended up getting rid of the 360 steering wheel but couldn't part with all the instruments! They are hiding all over the house, the drum kit is under clothes, microphones under couches, guitars in the loft. They need a purpose!

I think I still have all mine, but I've not seen any for a while tbh. I think there might be a couple of guitars in the spare room. No idea where the drum kit is. There's a couple of microphones in the drawer where I keep spare batteries and such.

I'd imagine they'd release all new instruments, though. Tis a massive money spinner.

@Late: Yeah, I know exactly what you mean. Excitement with a twinge in the wallet.

@JoeDark64: great minds, I'm actually writing a quick op-ed on that very subject.
