A couple of important remarks on compatibility
, 20 May 2009
This review is from: Rock Band 2 (PS3) (Video Game)
Having bought Guitar Hero World Tour complete with drum kit, microphone and a couple of guitar controllers, I bought this a few months later to make the most of the various accessories and learned a couple of very important things along the way.
First and foremost, the Guitar Hero World Tour drum kit works with Rock Band 2 but it does not work with Rock Band. I don't know if it's the same with the Xbox 360 version, so this information is directed at PS3 owners.
Secondly, if you don't want to miss out on Rock Band completely, you can import all the songs from Rock Band into Rock Band 2. However, to do this you need to make a one-off purchase of an electronic key from Sony's Playstation Store. When I bought mine I think it was £2.49p, so it doesn't break the bank. However, it's important to note that you must have a UK version of the games. You can play a US version of Rock Band on a British Playstation, but you cannot import the songs into Rock Band 2 unless you have a UK disc because the electronic key is "region coded".
